Who is Birmingham City's manager?

Birmingham City is member of English Championship League and unlike its neighbors and rivals Aston Villa and WBA they’re having tough times in the past few seasons. Birmingham is often in the bottom half of the table while their main rival managed to get promotion to the Premier League, and it is something that irritates the fans a lot. This team last time was in the Premier League in the 2010/11 season and ever since then they’re competing in the Championship.

Of course, this situation brought a lot trouble at the club as the fans are getting impatience and the board are constantly under pressure. It is one of the reasons why this club changes managers so often.

After the relegation in 2010/11 season till today Birmingham City had 14 managers and caretaker managers. Some very famous and respected names were appointed such as Chris Hughton, Gianfranco Zola, Harry Redknapp, Garry Alan Monk, Pep Clotet who was manager last season and the new appointed also famous Spanish manager Aitor Karanka who will try to bring glory to this great club and maybe get promotion to Premier League. Jose Mourinho's former assistant at Real Madrid, Aitor Karanka, is building a respectable career in England, while he did not even lead a team in Spain.

After finishing on the 20th place last season the club decided that changes must be made and after several months of rumors the decision was made and Karanka was announced as new manager of Birmingham City.

Karanka started coaching career as assistant manager in Real Madrid while Jose Mourinho was manager. It’s interesting that he still didn’t have opportunity to be manager of some Spanish club.

His first job as manager was at Boro in 2013. He did good work there, but he hasn’t got luck. In the first season he got the team to the play offs final on Wembley but was defeated 0:2 by Norwich City. However, the good job brought results as Middlesbrough was promoted to the Premier League in the 2015/16 season as they finished 2nd. The team showed some poor skills and form in the Premier League and was relegated after one season. In 2017 Karanka left the club after mutual agreement with the board.

In 2018 he was appointed as new manager of Nottingham Forest. He brought some players and had big ambitions with this club. He started the season well and Nottingham were always in the top half, but their form dropped and Karanka was sacked.

After 18 mounts break, Karanka is back in English Championship as new manager of Birmingham City. He got the experience and the Birmingham’s fans are right when they’re expecting big results from their new manager.
