Harry Redknapp appointed new Birmingham manager

Harry Redknapp appointed new Birmingham manager

Harry Redknapp was unveiled as the new Blues boss on Tuesday morning, with the club turning to the 70-year-old's wealth of experience as they aim to improve on the lacklustre Championship campaign which fans endured this season.

Gianfranco Zola resigned as Birmingham manager on Monday with the club 20th in the Championship table, three points above the relegation zone.

The club announced the appointment just 16 hours after Zola left the club.

They now sit in 20th, just three points above the bottom-three.

'Redknapp has enjoyed notable success as a manager at AFC Bournemouth, West Ham United, Portsmouth, Tottenham Hotspur and QPR'. My wife said 'Are you mad?'.

"Teams find it hard to break us down if we do not help them, and we did not do that against Birmingham. We need at least one win to be safe".

Blues' next game is at local rivals Aston Villa on Sunday.

"I went in there and said, "I don't want anything, but I'll come and do it".

Election a chance for Scotland to boost mandate for independence vote - Sturgeon
And Ms Sturgeon believes her party was the "real and only effective opposition to the Conservatives" in the Commons. May's Conservatives, which had their lowest share of vote in Scotland in a general election in 2015, have just one.

Stay on topic - This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand.

"Birmingham are a team I've not see much of, seen nothing of really, they've not been on TV much this year".

"I have got a bonus".

"I got a phone call about 7 o'clock at night and was asked if I'd come and have a meeting with representatives from Birmingham", Redknapp said at his first official news conference.

"We have had a good run, losing only three games in our last 12 games, which is good going when you are in the bottom six". "After I looked at the fixtures I thought it was an even bigger challenge".

"Funny really, because I was a bit anxious about that because I didn't know any of the players - a bit like here really".

Birmingham now sit three points above the relegation zone ahead of fixtures with Aston Villa, Huddersfield Town and Bristol City respectively.
