Former Southampton and Portsmouth manager, Harry Redknapp, has been named as the new manager of Birmingham City.

Gianfranco Zola stepped down yesterday (Monday) following his side’s 2-0 home defeat to Burton Albion. Zola won just two of his 24 games in charge, leaving the team just three points above the relegation zone.

Redknapp takes charge of the Championship strugglers after several months out of the game.

He took charge of Jordan for two World Cup qualifiers last year, and also worked as an advisor to Derby County last season. He hasn’t managed in England since leaving QPR in February 2015.

Redknapp also infamously managed both Southampton and Portsmouth – leading Pompey to an FA Cup Final win in 2008.
