Pogatetz holds fond memories of Middlesbrough stay

Emanuel Pogatetz insists he will always hold fond memories of his time at Middlesbrough after deciding to join Hannover. The defender told the club's official website: "Hopefully people will remember me as someone who gave everything.

"Hopefully people remember my commitment, that I always gave 100% in every game. I want to keep a good relationship with all the fans here and part on good terms."

He added: "I'm sad to be leaving because I wanted to stay with Middlesbrough. Unfortunately, we couldn't reach an agreement. I was injured quite a lot last year, the club was concerned that I may not play enough games.

"I can understand the way the club was thinking, but this will be a new chapter in my career, to play in a different league, against different clubs and with different players. In a career in football you're on the move all the time, you just have to get on with it."
