Steve Cotterill named as new Birmingham City assistant manager

27 April 2017, 03:42 | Charlene Valdez

Gianfranco Zola resigned yesterday at the Championship club after overseeing a bad run of form that yielded only two wins in 22 games since taking over four months ago.

Explaining how he got the Blues' job, Redknapp - who will be assisted at St Andrews by Steve Cotterill - said: "I got a phone call last (Monday) night from the people at Birmingham".

The 32-year-old is now playing with Rangers but many are expecting an imminent move.

After joining the Hammers as assistant to Billy Bonds, Redknapp took the hot seat in 1994 with the club about to start their second season in the recently-formed Premiership.

He was also with the Jordan national team for a two-game spell, but has since been out of management. I'm one hundred per cent certain that by this work, we are going to get the outcomes. Yes, Rotherham are relegated but they are fearless, they play with a lot of freedom and if we don't perform at our best it will be a hard match. Prior to that he was in charge of QPR, a position he left in 2015 with the club in the Premier League relegation zone.

"I was anxious how I was going to find a centre half amongst the jockeys with them all being so small".

Zola insisted only last week that the team was progressing, after the board released a statement offering their support of the under-fire 50-year-old.

He said: "I could easily have said goodbye to it all but I love it".

"If we can keep them up then we can sit down and talk about moving forward".

Birmingham City need Harry Redknapp to have a big impact, while Derby County's Gary Rowett has made a good start. "If I can not help the team, it is better I leave and let someone else do that". If I can not help the team, it is better I leave and let someone else do that. We worked with a lot of meaning, but unfortunately it didn't produce the results.
