Yu quits Blues role

18 September 2010 01:00
Sammy Yu has resigned as Birmingham's football consultant after nine months in the post. Yu worked closely with Carson Yeung in ensuring his £81.5million takeover of the Blues went through last October. He initially was given the role of vice-chairman of football and worked alongside manager Alex McLeish at the club's Wast Hills training ground. But he switched to his consultant post in December and has had less of a prominent role at St Andrew's in recent months. Yu told the Birmingham Mail: "I think the time is right for me to step down. After four years being part of the whole deal, from the beginning, I have done my bit. "It's time to release myself and I wish Birmingham City the best for the future. To be part of the club's history in a very important era is a highlight of my life."
