Blues Target Sunderland's Sbragia.

Blues Target Sunderland's Sbragia.

According to a report in the Guardian this morning, Birmingham City have made moves to replace Roy Aitken by asking Sunderland for permission to their chief scout Ricky Sbragia.

Boss Alex McLeish is keen to fill the now vacant assistant manager`s roll at St Andrews now that Aitken has left to become David O`Leary`s assistant manager in the United Arab Emirates. The former Sunderland boss is his number one target.

Sbragia started his football career at Birmingham City.

Must be good friends with McLeish because he didn't impress many people when he was manager at Sunderland

What an absolute non-starter. They have no history and Sbraiga's hardly set the world alight has he? It's more likely Blues make an approach for Eric Black also at Sunderland. Black knows the set-up knows McLeish from their time together at Motherwell and he's met him in passing as a manager. Can only really see it being someone Blues have had before so probably Black, Bowen or Bullivant? Also McLeish managed with just Watson when he was at Rangers? Who's to say he's not going to save a wage?

has experienced being a manager and an assistant already, more importantly a stint as reserve coach at Man United will mean he knows how to groom first teamers.
