Aitor Karanka de la Hoz (born 18 September 1973) is a Spanish football manager and former player who was most recently manager of EFL Championship club Birmingham City.

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

Karanka started a managerial career in the late 2000s, notably working as assistant manager at Real Madrid during José Mourinho's tenure as manager from 2010 to 2013. He was appointed manager of EFL Championship club 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. He was appointed as head coach of another Championship club, Birmingham City, in July 2020 and stepped down in March 2021.
