Harry Redknapp appointed Birmingham manager

Birmingham carry all the hallmarks of a club intent on self-destruction, making freaky managerial decisions that make no sense - something that Newcastle fans can definitely identify with during the Mike Ashley years. I haven't got a magic wand, I'm not going to turn them into Real Madrid.

On Monday, Gianfranco Zola announced that he was resigning from his position in the dugout at St Andrew's, and the Blues have acted swiftly to name Redknapp as his successor until the end of the season.

The 70-year-old former Tottenham and West Ham boss has taken the reins at the relegation threatened Championship club. My wife said to me 'are you mad or what?'.

"The vastly experienced Redknapp has agreed to replace Gianfranco Zola, who resigned on Monday".

He left Loftus Road in 2015 and, save for a two game stint in charge of the Jordan national team in March 2016, has been out of football since.

"I went in there and said, "I don't want anything, but I'll come and do it".

Le Pen made a "serious mistake", said Macron, the front-runner in France's two-round April 23-May 7 presidential election. It another similarity, some artists in the entertainment industry claim that they will leave France if Le Pen wins.

Redknapp also infamously managed both Southampton and Portsmouth - leading Pompey to an FA Cup Final win in 2008. I got a phone call last night from the people at Birmingham.

Redknapp's first game as Blues' boss is Saturday's city derby at Aston Villa.

"I think if we can stay up this year, the potential is here to build a team that next year would be looking at the play-offs", he said.

Redknapp's last job in English football came at Derby last season, when he worked as a football advisor alongside then-manager Darren Wassall. "Wigan and Blackburn have still got a big chance, so we're going to need some points from somewhere, starting if we can on Sunday".

He said: "They are three tough games".

Birmingham are away at Villa then home to Huddersfield, before ending away at relegation strugglers Bristol City.
