Not only has today’s news of Rowett’s sacking been a shock to the system for Blues fans, but for former players too.
Many fans have been left bemused and are wondering if this is the move to make the club bigger. A chance to attract better players maybe? Or to bring a different brand of football to Blues?
Here’s what former players had to say:
Birmingham city 😳😳😳👊🏻 3 points off 3rd , 7th in league And rowett departs ! #gamesgone

New owners are saying nothing at moment but its a baffling decision to sack GR. He has done an amazing job since taking over #bcfc

Lee Clark & his random lineup generator held the job for longer (846 days) than Gary Rowett (779 days). I've never been so baffled. #BCFC

As a blues fan I'm heartbroken. Gary Rowett is the best manager we've had in a decade. What are reasons for this? @BCFC

My guess is that Gary Rowett will be in the Premier League before Birmingham City.
