Manager Marc Skinner is departing Birmingham City Women and is forecast to take using one of the primary jobs in women’s club football at Orlando Pride.

Before his departure, the 35-year-old will simply take control of Sunday’s Women’s Super League game against Bristol City.

Skinner took over at Blues at December 2016 and directed them into the FA Cup final and a fourth-placed ending in 2017.

Pride’s squad includes Brazil’s six-time World Player of the Season, Marta, and USA co-captain Alex Morgan.

He will replace enormously experienced Scot Tom Sermanni, that left Orlando Pride at the finish of their 2018 year old.

The Florida outfit are craving success, having finished a disappointing seventh this past year after having a third-placed finish in 2017.

Blues thanked Skinner because of his”effort, excitement and inspirational training” and said that his next team will be supported in due course.
