Birmingham City part company with Marta Tejedor after just over a year in charge

Marta Tejedor has left her role as Birmingham City manager after just 13 months in charge.

The 51 year-old led the Blues to a fourth place finish in the Women's Super League last season and a record points total in the process.

But this season Birmingham sit second bottom of the WSL, just a point above Liverpool in the relegation place having lost their last five games.

In a statement, Birmingham said: "The Club believes the move is in the best interests of both parties as we seek fresh impetus for the remainder of the season.

"Currently Blues are second from bottom in the table and our recent league results were a major factor for this change.

"The Club would like to thank Marta for all her efforts and we wish her every success in the future."

First team coach Charlie Baxter will now become interim manager while the club seek a replacement.

Birmingham's next game is in the FA Cup quarter-finals against Brighton on March 15 before they travel to Tottenham on March 22 in search of a first league victory of 2020.
