Sheringham has been working as the attacking coach at West Ham United, and the move to the Boro represents a step-up for him.
Former Arsenal striker Wright is delighted to see the ex-Manchester United and Nottingham Forest star become a manager.

Former Tottenham midfielder Micky Hazard has also wished Sheringham the best of luck in his managerial career, and is confident that the ex-England international will be successful.

Sheringham’s appointment in the summer means that Graham Westley will leave his position as the Stevenage manager.
The Boro finished sixth in League Two this season and earned a playoff spot, but they failed to get the better of Southend United in the semi-finals.
