Italy´s World Cup winning coach Marcello Lippi has rejected the chance to replace Steve Bruce as manager of Birmingham City.

Blues co-owner David Sullivan confirmed Blues had spoken with Lippi who enjoyed great success at club level with Juventus before leading Italy to football´s ultimate prize in 2006.

Sullivan told the Birmingham Mail: "We made an approach and Lippi turned it down. This is not a stunt. It´s genuine. He is available at the moment and we are looking at bringing in a manager of his stature and calibre, if at all possible."
