Who Could Be The Next Birmingham City Manager

Shelby Companies Ltd, a US-based Knighthead Capital Management subsidiary, became the new Birmingham City owners in the summer of 2023 and stressed the need for a winning mentality. It is a given that any new manager needs to share their ambition. The following managers featured in the bookmaker odds after Wayne Rooney was sacked. 

Steve Cooper

The underestimated Steve Cooper started his club management career with Swansea. He guided the Championship club to back-to-back playoffs, just falling short in both. He had more success with Nottingham Forest, whom he took into the EPL in 2022. He was dismissed from the East Midlands side in December 2023; Birmingham City may be very lucky to have a manager of his quality available.

 Would the American owners be more open to appointing one of their fellow countrymen? The ex-Leeds United manager has more experience than recent Blues appointments, and they will surely go for an established managerial name this time, having got it so wrong with Rooney.

Scott Parker

Parker has managed Fulham, AFC Bournemouth and Club Brugge in Belgium. He left the Cherries under a cloud after his MOTD comments that the club's transfer policy made them unequipped for the EPL. However, his track record shows that he achieved championship promotion for Fulham and Bournemouth, the number 1 goal for all at St Andrews.

Steven Gerrard

Former Aston Villa and Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is with Saudi Arabian side Al-Ettifaq. 

He is expected to be back on the shores with future appointments and features in many next-manager betting lists. 

Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard's career has faltered after poor spells at Chelsea and Everton. He may consider dropping down a division to help rebuild his managerial status. 

Graham Potter

In a similar position to Lampard Graham Potter needs to rebuild his footballing reputation after his Chelsea disappointment. Hs Blues team did not progress under his coaching methods and he was sacked after just seven months. Could he move to another Blues?
