Gianfranco Zola resigns as Birmingham manager after home loss to Burton

17 April 2017 06:24

Gianfranco Zola has resigned as Birmingham manager after just four months in charge following Monday's 2-0 Sky Bet Championship defeat at home to Burton.

The 50-year-old Italian was appointed in December after the controversial sacking of Gary Rowett, but has overseen just two wins in 22 league games.

"Gianfranco Zola has (on Saturday) evening resigned as Blues manager," Birmingham confirmed on Twitter.

Monday's loss left the midlands club three points above the relegation zone with three games remaining.
