Tony Mowbray, the former manager of Coventry City, is taking a medical leave of absence from Birmingham City’s first team in order to obtain treatment.

Blues have announced that Mowbray, who led the squad to consecutive wins against Sunderland and Blackburn Rovers last week, will take a six- to eight-week leave of absence from his position. The Championship season comes to an end on May 4th, when Norwich City plays.

In lieu of Mowbray, the Sky Blues will be led by Mark Venus, their director of football when they played at the CBS Arena, with assistance from coaches Ashley Cole, Pete Shuttleworth, and Maik Taylor.

“After my recent LMA Health Assessment, I have received a medical diagnosis that will require me to receive treatment,” stated 60-year-old Mowbray. I shall have to briefly leave the Technical Area in my capacity as manager of Birmingham City Football Club in order to receive treatment. My assistant manager, Mark Venus, along with coaches Ashley Cole, Pete Shuttleworth, and Maik Taylor, will temporarily lead the team until I return. While receiving therapy, I will still offer guidance and recommendations.
