Birmingham City chief Tom Wagner admits the club made a MISTAKE sacking John Eustace ‘too early’… after his successor Wayne Rooney was axed for winning just TWO of his 15 games in charge during disastrous 83-day reign



Tom Wagner, Birmingham City’s chief, has admitted that the club made a mistake in sacking John Eustace too early last autumn, leading to Wayne Rooney’s challenging tenure as manager. When Eustace was dismissed and Rooney was appointed, Birmingham City was in sixth place in the Championship. However, after Rooney’s 83-day stint, they plummeted to 20th place after losing nine league games.

Looking towards the future, Wagner announced plans for a multi-billion-pound development project, including a new stadium, with hopes that it will resemble Manchester City’s Etihad Campus. While Wagner did not mention Eustace or Rooney by name, it’s understood that the club now acknowledges they acted too hastily in removing Eustace, who is currently managing Blackburn Rovers.

Birmingham City finds themselves in a precarious position in the bottom three, battling to avoid relegation ahead of their upcoming match against Cardiff City. Wagner reflected on the decision-making process, acknowledging that not every decision made by the club will be perfect but emphasizing the importance of learning from mistakes and making better decisions in the future.
