The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

MID­DLES­BROUGH le­gend Jun­inho says it’s only a mat­ter of time be­fore they are back in the big time.

The 40-year-old Brazil­ian World Cup win­ner en­joyed three spells on River­side, ar­riv­ing ini­tially for £4.75m and help­ing the club to the League Cup in 2004.

“I feel al­ways very happy to be here and the re­cep­tion I still get is un­be­liev­able,” he said.“I still sup­port Mid­dles­brough and that’s why I keep on com­ing back and I will con­tinue to sup­port them.

“The Mid­dles­brough sup­port­ers will be in my heart for­ever. Con­tinue sup­port­ing the way you are and I be­lieve Mid­dles­brough will soon be where they should be, in the Pre­mier League.”
