Defending the danger zone

Playing against pressure

Counter-attacking with an overload

Gary Rowett enjoyed a long playing career as a defender and played for all three of the clubs he has subsequently managed. Starting his coaching career in 2009 as assistant manager at Burton Albion, he was appointed to the top job in 2012, and he led the team to a fourth place finish and to the League Two play-off semi-finals the following year.

He was appointed manager of struggling Championship side Birmingham City in October 2014 and was highly regarded for his transformation of the team before his departure in December 2016, leaving with the club seventh in the table.

He became Derby County manager in March 2017 moving on to Stoke City, then Millwall.
