Women’s Sport: Marta Tejedor has left Birmingham City by mutual agreement

Birmingham City released a club statement explaining Tejedor’s departure.

“The Club believes the move is in the best interests of both parties as we seek fresh impetus for the remainder of the season”.

Birmingham City coach Charlie Baxter will take over as First Team Coach on an interim basis whilst the Club seeks to find a permanent replacement.

Marta Tejedor was previously Chile and Peru’s national coach before she joined the Blue’s back in January 2019. She helped the WSL side reach a fourth-place finish in the league.

Birmingham City are currently second from bottom in the Barclays FA WSL, despite them having gaining a record points total last season.

Despite the circumstances, the Blue’s have nine WSL games remaining and an FA Cup Quarter-Final to look forward to.

Charlie Baxter has worked his way up with the Blue’s since joining in 2015 as an Under-13s coach. After becoming the Regional Talents Club’s Head of Technical Development, he stepped up to the Women’s First Team as an Assistant Coach.

Baxter currently has a UEFA B coaching licence and will commence his A licence in April.
Birmingham City quoted: “The Club would like to thank Marta for all her efforts, and we wish her every success in the future”.

The Blue’s next fixture is away to Tottenham Hotspur on the 22nd of March. 

Marta has not yet commented on the departure.
