Harry Redknapp named as new boss of Birmingham City

Harry Redknapp named as new boss of Birmingham City

HARRY REDKNAPP has admitted he is going into the Birmingham City relegation fight blind after failing to see any of their season so far.

Redknapp has also managed two other London clubs in West Ham, for whom he played, and Tottenham.

Gianfranco Zola has resigned as Birmingham City manager following Monday's home defeat by fellow Championship strugglers Burton Albion.

Redknapp, with his 34 years of managerial experience, has subsequently been chosen to rescue them from potential relegation, with Birmingham set to face Midlands rivals Aston Villa this weekend.

To say the decision to replace Gary Rowett with Gianfranco Zola in December 2016 was unpopular, is an understatement, and with hindsight it is something that Birmingham's owners may regret.

Brits bet big on unpredictable French election
Security officials say the gunman was known to them and his home in Chelles, in the eastern suburbs of Paris , has been searched. Le Pen's 21.5 percent was a fall of 1.5 percentage points.

Zola's resignation was announced on the club's Twitter feed.

Redknapp has been without a job since his weird two-game spell as Jordan manager previous year, before which he was in charge of QPR for three seasons.

"It's a big club, a challenge, a big challenge". I haven't got a magic wand, I'm not going to turn them into Real Madrid.

"I haven't signed a contract or anything for the three weeks, or couple weeks I'm here even".

"They have won 2 games out of 22".

In the Netherlands marijuana use is generally tolerated , but it is not strictly speaking legal. Trafficking cannabis outside the government's new legal framework would remain illegal.

You know things must be really bad at Birmingham as with three games to go they have turned to 'Arry.

"I am sorry because I came here with a lot of expectations and the results haven't been good".

Harry Redknapp has been hired as coach of struggling second-tier team Birmingham, marking his return to English soccer management after a two-year absence.

There is one question we all want answered though: will Niko Kranjcar be a Blues player come this weekend?

After facing Villa, Blues host promotion-chasing Huddersfield Town before visiting Bristol City on the final day of the regular season.
