Birmingham City have found some stability under the guidance of Garry Monk, who has restored the feel-good atmosphere around the club.
The Blues had endured a turbulent few seasons with the likes of Gary Cotterill, Harry Redknapp and Gianfranco Zola at the helm – who oversaw a total of just 64 matches at the helm, less than their predecessor Gary Rowett managed on his own.
With none of the aforementioned trio currently employed in management, although Zola is assistant at Chelsea to Maurizio Sarri, Blues fans have not seen much of their former leaders – although that soon changed last month.
Redknapp was part of the cast for the latest series of ITV’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and jetted to Australia to spend time in the jungle, where he became a TV highlight after a number of hilarious incidents.
On Sunday evening, Redknapp was crowned King of the Jungle as the latest series came to a close and it led to plenty of reactions on social media – where many fans shared their reactions.
We have gathered some of their comments below.
