Birmingham City are a team battling relegation in the Championship of English football, and in order to come out on top and beat the odds of being demoted to League 1, they have recently announced the appointment of veteran manager Harry Redknapp as the man in charge to bring their season back on track and head it in a forward direction.
Zola resigned from the job as Birmingham boss on Monday following a 2-0 defeat to Burton Albion, which leaves them 3 points off the drop zone with as many matches remaining.
However, the club was quick to react and appoint the former Tottenham and QPR boss to take over at the helm and bring back much needed missing order at the club. Redknapp reeled in immediately as Birmingham face rivals Aston Villa this week, leaving the manager with 34 years of experience hardly any time to settle down.

Redknapp last had a job previous year, when he managed the Jordan national team, but he does bring along a heavy baggage of experience of management in English football, having led teams like Bournemouth, West Ham, Southampton, Tottenham, QPR, and two stints at Portsmouth, where he emerged victorious with an FA Cup title to his name.
Harry currently is the director at football club Wimborne Town, which is a non-league side, and a football consultant at Central Coast Mariners, which is an Australian side playing the sport.
Redknapp has seen highs by taking Spurs to the Champions League, and has hit lows with QPR and relegation, but if anyone can save Birmingham from going further down, Harry would be as safe a bet as any.
