The manager has resigned his position.
The futures of Gianfranco’s backroom team – Pierluigi Casiraghi, Gabriele Cioffi, Kevin Hitchcock, Andrea Caronti and Sebastiano Porcu – will be decided in due course.
Birmingham City would like to place on record their thanks to Gianfranco for his efforts.
The Club will seek to appoint a new manager within the next few days.
No further comment will be made at this time.
