Redknapp Replaces Zola As Birmingham City Manager

After the Villa game, the Blues then host Huddersfield Town before finishing off the season away at relegation rivals Bristol City.

The club has now turned to Redknapp until the end of the season, with Steve Cotterill also joining the coaching staff.

New Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp has revealed he has not signed any official contract with the club, and that it was not a move motivated by money.

Redknapp's most recent managerial role was taking charge of two matches for Middle Eastern country Jordan, but made his name in management as boss of Bournemouth, West Ham Southampton and Portsmouth.

'There was nothing to sign in all honesty, ' Redknapp told talkSport.

He continued: "I got a phone call last night from the people at Birmingham".

Zola, in his third management spell in England after stints at West Ham and Watford, added: "If I feel I can not help the players, why stay?" I got home and my wife said: "Are you mad?".
