Stadium St Andrews
Time at Club:
Birmingham City have announced their new manager is Gianfranco Zola following the departure of Gary Rowett in one of the more bizarre sackings of the season. The Italian has endured a shocking start to life at the Midlands club, coming under pressure as a result.
Birmingham have had four different spells in the Premier League, the longest being four seasons between 2007 and 2011, however they've been stuck in the Championship since 2011. The Blues have had their fair share of managers over the years, including the likes of Steve Bruce, Chris Hughton, and Alex McLeish, but under current boss Rowett they have found some consistency in the dugout, which they hope will lead to promotion up to the top-flight.
Birmingham City have not recorded a win in the last 10 games, forcing 3 draws against Blackburn Rovers, Nottingham Forest and Newcastle United. Defeats to Queens Park Rangers, Preston North End, Sheffield Wednesday, Reading, Norwich City, Newcastle United and Brentford has seen them concede 20 goals at an average of 2 per game while scoring just 6 to give them a -14 goal difference over this period.
