HOW IS RODRIGO MUNIZ GETTING ON AWAY FROM FULHAM AT MIDDLESBROUGH?

ulham decided to engage in a great deal of transfer business during the summer window following their promotion to the Premier League.

As well as securing the services of 13 players, the Cottagers opted to sanction exits for a number of individuals.

One of the players who sealed a temporary departure from Fulham was Rodrigo Muniz.

The Brazilian forward was loaned out to Middlesbrough for the remainder of the 2022/23 campaign in August.

Here, we have decided to take a look at how Muniz has been getting on away from Fulham since making the switch to the Riverside Stadium…

Having been deployed predominantly as a substitute by the Cottagers last season, it was hardly a surprise that Muniz was allowed to make the move to Middlesbrough.

Given that he was behind Aleksandar Mitrovic in the pecking order at Fulham, the forward would have been forced to watch on from the sidelines for the majority of the current campaign if he had stayed at Craven Cottage.

Since sealing a switch to Boro, Muniz has produced some encouraging performances for the Championship outfit.

After making his debut against Swansea City, the 21-year-old was given the nod to start in Middlesbrough’s clash with Watford.

Muniz marked his second appearance for Boro by scoring the opening goal at Vicarage Road last week.

Although Boro were unable to prevent the Hornets from securing a 2-1 victory in this fixture, Muniz’s individual display was relatively encouraging.

As well as finding the back of the net for Middlesbrough, Muniz provided two key passes for his team-mates and won five aerial duels as he recorded a WhoScored match rating of 7.49.

The forward backed up this particular display by providing an attacking threat in Boro’s victory over Sunderland earlier this week.

After Riley McGree opened the scoring for Middlesbrough, Muniz went close to doubling his side’s advantage as his headed effort was saved by Sunderland goalkeeper Anthony Patterson.

Muniz is expected to feature for Boro this weekend when they head to Bloomfield Road to face Blackpool in the Championship.

Fulham will be hoping that the 21-year-old will be able to make considerable strides in terms of his development during the remainder of this particular loan spell.
