In his role, Brady will oversee a variety of aspects of the club, including the sports science department to advise on health, nutrition, wellness and recovery systems.

He will also work closely with the board and management team on global marketing efforts as Birmingham seek new commercial opportunities under Tom Wagner’s ownership.

Brady, who hasn’t wasted any time in wearing the new Blues home shirt, has already spoken directly to supporters in a video posted across Birmingham’s social media channels.

“So here’s the deal. I’m officially coming on board at Birmingham City Football Club,” Brady said. And maybe you’re asking, what do you know about English football, Tom?

“Well, let’s just say, I’ve got a lot to learn. But I do know a few things about winning and I think they might translate pretty well.

“I know success starts with the work put in when the world isn’t watching. I know a team is nothing without the city that shows up and stands behind it. Most importantly, I know I like being the underdog.

“The road’s been long for Birmingham, but these fans have never stopped believing. We’ve got a song that says no matter what, you keep right on to the end of the road. And I’ll be on that road with you.

“I’ll see you at St Andrew’s soon. It’s time to get to work. Let’s go,” Brady continued.
