Redknapp: Saving Birmingham a challenge

24. Burton- £163k

Harry Redknapp believes Birmingham City "should be pushing to get back into the Premier League", after holding his first press conference at the club.

Redknapp has also previously been awarded the Premier League manager of the year award whilst at Tottenham Hotspur for the success of the 2009/10 season.

The club are 20th in the Championship table, three points above the relegation zone, and Redknapp told a news conference: "It was something I thought I'll have a go at".

Birmingham sat in seventh place when the Italian arrived in December, to replace sacked boss Gary Rowett.

Zola faced the press soon after the announcement and he said: "I am sorry because obviously I came here with huge expectations, from the club and myself".

Redknapp has been without a job since his freaky two-game spell as Jordan manager past year, before which he was in charge of QPR for three seasons. I ain't got a magic wand.

"I could easily have said goodbye to it all but I love it". We will give it everything we have got it, we will throw ourselves into it, and hopefully we will get the win or whatever we need to stay up.

Redknapp started his managerial career with Bournemouth before spending eight years in charge at West Ham. I drove to London, had a meeting for 10 to 15 minutes, sat down and said "Yeah, I will do it, no problem".

However under former Italy worldwide Zola, the Midlands club suffered a dramatic slump in form that saw Birmingham manage just two wins in 22 matches.

"I have come in pretty blind really". He has since worked as an adviser at second-tier Derby and as coach of Jordan for two games.

"Unfortunately the results have not been good and I take full responsibility". If I feel I can not help the players, why stay?
