Redknapp named new Birmingham City manager

Redknapp's most recent managerial post was with Jordan.

Redknapp's last job in English football came at Derby last season, as a football advisor alongside then-manager Darren Wassall.

'I drove to London, had a meeting for ten to 15 minutes, sat down and said "Yeah, I will do it, no problem".

He is now at home on the south coast but will travel to Birmingham this evening.

"The players have to get us out of it, all I can do is install a bit of confidence and belief in them and if we can do that and get a result or two then that will be great".

"I got a phone call last night from the people at Birmingham".

"When the opportunity came I didn't hesitate", said Redknapp. I haven't got a magic wand that's for sure, it's up to them.

Birmingham are the seventh club Redknapp has been in charge of. It is a good club. We have the worst goal difference [of the teams still fighting against relegation].

Stocks bounce as earnings in focus; dollar steadies on Mnuchin
While Mnuchin says he still expects tax reform to happen sometime in 2017, there's no guarantee that's realistic either. Among the key sticking points is a "border adjusted" plan that would, in effect, tax imports while exempting exports.

"I've gone in there and said, "listen, I don't want nothing, I will come and do it". It wasn't a money deal for me, it was just a little challenge and getting me back in doing something I enjoy doing, being around footballers.

The club had promised to act swiftly following the departure of Zola, who oversaw a dismal 22-game reign which brought only two wins.

Birmingham have just three games remaining this season, and they need to pick up some victories - otherwise they risk relegation and undoing all of Rowett's hard work at St. Andrews.

His first match as manager comes at Villa on Sunday.

His last spell in the Championship saw Redknapp guide QPR to promotion.

Redknapp, who at 70 becomes the oldest manager in English football, guided Tottenham to Champions League qualification in the 2009-10 season.

An FA Cup victor with Portsmouth in 2008, he led Tottenham to the Champions League quarter-finals during a four-year spell at White Hart Lane.
