Tony Mowbray to take break from Birmingham City role due to serious illness


Birmingham City chief Garry Cook added: "Our thoughts are with Tony, his wife Amber, and family. We wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to welcoming Tony back to the Club to continue the excellent work that he has started.

"In the meantime, Mark Venus, Ashley Cole, Pete Shuttleworth and Maik Taylor, will be given all the support they need to lead the Club forward."

Mowbray has overseen four victories in eight matches since his appointment, including a 2-1 victory against former club Sunderland on Saturday. The Blues are currently 15th in the table, five points above the second-tier relegation zone.
