Tony Mowbray has temporarily stepped down from his role as Birmingham City manager to undergo medical treatment. Mowbray will be absent from the games for several weeks. The assistant manager Mark Venus will be taking charge of first-team affairs.

Mowbray, 60, has only presided over eight games since taking charge on January 8. The players have been left stunned by the shocking news after being informed at a private meeting at its Henley-in-Arden training base.

The prognosis of the club’s manager is still unknown, but the club is only confirming that Mowbray will be out of action for only about six to eight weeks. However, he is unlikely to make an appearance before the end of the campaign finishing on May 4. Mowbray will start treatment this week and will be standing down as the club’s manager with immediate effect. Mark Venus, the assistant manager will take temporary charge of the team, supported by coaches Ashley Cole, Pete Shuttleworth and Maik Taylor. Mowbray will continue to provide advice and counsel while undergoing treatment.  

Since his appointment into the position following the disastrous reign of Wayne Rooney, Birmingham has won four, lost three and drawn one of their eight games in all competitions. The last game with him in charge resulted in a 2-1 win over Sunderland, his former club.
