Aitor Karanka de la Hoz (born 18 September 1973) is a Spanish football manager and former player who is currently the head coach of Championship side Birmingham City .

Save for a brief spell in the United States, at the age of 32, he played solely in Spain for Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid, appearing in 275 La Liga matches over 13 seasons and winning a total of six honours with the latter.

Karanka started a managerial career in the late 2000s, notably working as assistant manager at Real Madrid during Jose Mourinho's tenure as manager from 2010–13. He was appointed manager of Middlesbrough in 2013, guiding them to promotion to the Premier League in 2016 before being dismissed the following year. He became Nottingham Forest manager in January 2018, leaving the role just over a year later in 2019, before being appointed as Head coach of fellow Championship club Birmingham City in July 2020.
