Talk about getting fans on your good side.
If the initial excitement of him Aitor Karanka was an indicator of just how much Blues fans think of him, then this message ramped the whole thing up another level.
New Blues head coach Aitor Karanka took to social media over the weekend, and in that message he spoke about how much he was looking forward to ‘this new chapter’ in Birmingham City’s history.
Isn’t it nice to have this level of interaction between members of the team and the fans these days? A lot different than the appointment of Blues managers in the past, when the best Steve Bruce could have hoped for in his day was a few letters at the training ground.
Did Blues get the appointment right?
Well, the fans were more than happy to double-down on their excitement with the new man in charge, responding with yet more positive messages.
We can't wait, Aitor! #KRO 💙
