Following the news of a managerial decision to be made today, Cotterill’s future still hangs in the balance until an announcement is made this week.
It’s also worth noting that the club have stated Cotterill will resume with normal proceedings tomorrow, starting with his Forest press conference at Wast Hills.
Whether this is just a cover up remains to be seen, as it is understood (via Alex Nixon) top boss (likely to be director of BCFC Zhao Wenqing) is in Birmingham today to sort out proceedings and go from there.
This comes after we heard Blues CEO Xuandong Ren is fully backing the former Bristol City manager, as well as the players coming out stating they will do the same. If Cotterill is to depart, Dong Ren’s job would then become under even more scrutiny.
The Blues boss was also quick to defend his reign:
“It’s not nice to take the stick I take but if it’s someone else managing the team in a month’s time then they’re in the same situation because it’ll be the same players going out on the pitch.”
As for Financial Fair Play, we will hear the latest tomorrow on whether or not the club will face a transfer embargo, or worse case scenario, a points deduction.
Until then, Blues fans can only hope Cotterill is not in front of the press tomorrow, providing us with even more blunt comments…
