Birmingham City part company with Gianfranco Zola

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.

Thank you.
