Harry Redknapp Replaced By A Former Ireland Midfielder As Birmingham City Boss

Harry Redknapp Replaced By A Former Ireland Midfielder As Birmingham City Boss

Birmingham City have parted company with manager Harry Redknapp after suffering six straight defeats in all competitions.

Birmingham signed 14 players during the summer transfer window but a failure to stop the rot saw Redknapp become the first managerial casualty of the Championship season.

Redknapp - who embarked on a rebuilding programme at City over the summer, which included the club-record signing of Jota - took over after Gianfranco Zola's disastrous reign last season.

And after today's 3-1 home defeat to Preston, Birmingham chose to sack the 70-year-old.

The 70-year-old manager joined Birmingham in April and helped them to avoid relegation with two wins from their final three games, but this season they have picked up only four points and sit 23rd in the standings.

The Miami Dolphins season opener was rescheduled and the Miami Hurricanes had to cancel a game completely. The two teams will battle on the diamond but likely exchange pleasantries and well wishes after the game.

"I am disappointed. It's been hard, I have had one week with a new team and new players, one week".

Following a miserable opening to this campaign, they lie second from bottom of the table after losing six of their opening eight games. "I would love to be the manager to bring some success to Birmingham". This season the target was much bigger, get them out of the second tier of football but in the good way.

"And I still felt that given time I would have given them a team that would have been challenging for promotion, I had no doubt about that".

Carsley, 43, who was previously head coach at Brentford on an interim basis in 2015, steps up from the role of development squad manager at Birmingham.
