Birmingham City boss Pep Clotet has quit the club by mutual consent.

The Spaniard step down after his team lost 3-1 to Swansea City.

Pep, 43, was set to leave the Championship side at the end of the season but the latest result prompted his resignation.

Clotet was assistant to former boss Garry Monk before succeeding him as head coach, initially on an interim basis, in June 2019.

He had previously worked under Monk at Swansea and Leeds, before a brief spell as Oxford manager, but when Monk was sacked by Blues last summer, they parted on bad terms.

First-team coach Craig Gardner and professional development coach Steve Spooner will be in charge of the team for Sunday’s game at Stoke City.
