Birmingham City pays tribute to club legend.

Birmingham City chief executive Garry Cook has announced that the club intends to erect a statue in memory of Trevor Francis.

Cook stated in a speech on Tuesday that he would form a Trevor Francis Memorial Committee and install a statue outside St Andrew’s.

Francis, who died last year at the age of 69, became the first £1 million player in British football when he joined Nottingham Forest in 1979.
He began his career with the Blues, where he played 328 games and scored 133 goals after making his first-team debut in 1970 at the age of 16.

Francis returned to St Andrew’s as manager in 1996, helping the team reach the play-offs three times and the 2001 League Cup final, which they lost to Liverpool.
