Earlier this week, we ran a story confirming that Birmingham City will stick with Gianfranco Zola into next season. Today, it’s accuracy has been confirmed by a second source close to the club.

It’s also been confirmed that Zola will not get the sack even if Blues lose at relegated Rotherham United tomorrow.

Our source said- ‘Unless Blues go down, Zola stays. He has players already lined up to bring in next season and detailed planning has been done’.

They continued- ‘Monday’s statement wasn’t a vote of confidence as we know it – it was genuine support for the manager. If Blues lose at Rotherham, the pressure will increase on Zola but he won’t be sacked so long as Birmingham remain a Championship club going into next season’.
