Breaking news: Birmingham City coach on why he his leaving

Birmingham City coach ‘considered’ for Championship roles, while Plymouth and Hull City management hunts continue
Ashley Cole, the iconic former Arsenal, Chelsea, and England left-back, is apparently being considered for his first management position.


The 43-year-old has quietly honed his craft with the Blues, having previously played for Everton, England Under-21s, and Derby County. Cole joined St Andrew’s @ Knighthead Park as a colleague of Wayne Rooney in October before electing to stay under Tony Mowbray, Mark Venus, and eventually Gary Rowett.However, following Birmingham’s relegation to League One, Cole may be on his way out, according to The Mirror, as numerous Championship clubs are interested in providing him his first head coaching post. Although no teams are explicitly designated.

The Blues are hoping to keep Cole on their regular coaching staff as Tony Mowbray recovers from sickness. Ethan Laird, a key player who idolizes Cole and has already benefited from specific coaching, will be keeping a careful eye on things.

Cole, who was just inducted into the Premier League’s Hall of Fame, is widely regarded as one of the best left full-backs in history. It’s no surprise that the Blues want him to stay, as he’s not only improving as a coach but also a leader in the locker room.

Cole is unlikely to stay much longer, as he believes he is ready to take his first steps into management. With Plymouth and Hull still looking, it will be intriguing to watch whether any team initiates formal contact. This is a tale worth keeping an eye on in the coming weeks.
