Red­knapp sacked af­ter 13 games

The Observer - Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

Harry Red­knapp has lost his job as Birm­ing­ham man­ager af­ter just 13 games in charge. The 70-year-old for­mer Tot­ten­ham man­ager was brought in on a res­cue mis­sion at the end of last sea­son and suc­ceeded in keep­ing Blues in the Cham­pi­onship af­ter tak­ing over from Gian­franco Zola. But a tor­rid start to this cam­paign has seen them win just two of their 10 games in all com­pe­ti­tions and the club’s board made their move in the wake of a 3-1 home de­feat to Pre­ston.

A state­ment from City read: “Blues have parted com­pany with man­ager Harry Red­knapp.”
