End of an error! Zola resigns after Birmingham beaten by Burton

Date Posted,April 16, 2017

Gianfranco Zola has resigned as Birmingham City manager following today’s loss to Burton Albion.

The 2-0 home reverse sees the Blues fall to 20th place in the Championship, just three points clear of the drop zone.

The Italian lost 14 of his 23 games, winning just twice, since he replaced Gary Rowett in December.

Birmingham were in seventh place when he took over and just four months later are fighting for their Championship lives with just three games remaining, including a second city derby against Aston Villa on Sunday.

He has now chosen to fall on his sword after another dour afternoon at St Andrew’s which saw the home fans call for his head.

They now have their wish.

More to follow.
