He has to now as hes on his way out of Birmingham City ....
Since he started working in senior football he is racking up a job a year. He doesn't last that long even as an assistant.
He might be a lovely chap or a complete idiot - I don't know - but as a football coach he seems to be well out of his depth.
You are right of course. My bad (as the kids probably no longer say!). But when is a manager not a manager? When he is a 'Head Coach'
However, even as a coach he hasn't lasted anywhere very long - which would call his skills in that area into question for me as well really. A decent coach can often outlast a manager or two at a club - but has he done that?
I certainly cant see him getting another job in this country. Being mates with Gary Monk seem to elevate his reputation above where it really deserved to be. He then went and shafted Monk over the Brum job by all accounts so he’s definitely burned his bridges here I reckonI never understood him. He got several teams relegated across multiple leagues in Europe in his early days, and his since carried on being pretty poor to say the least. He would’ve gotten us relegated if we had kept him - the people at the time saying it was an outrage sacking him when we were 10th had failed to look at form, players, fixtures and the fact we were in free fall. By the time he had carried on playing Xemi over the likes of Ledson and Rothwell, insisted that Gino Van Kessel was the L1 Ronaldinho, kept trying to get Dwight Tiendalli to be able to walk again, and then bolstered the ranks further with the likes of Kemy Agustien, we would’ve been absolutely toast.
I have absolutely no idea how or why he keeps getting jobs.
