Tom Brady returns to England on Saturday to watch his football team Birmingham City play, but it will be a different occasion than his last visit.
On Aug. 3, Brady announced on his 46th birthday that he had taken a small stake in the second-tier football team, which has finished this season under former coach John Eustace. Got off to a good start.
In September, Brady made his debut in Birmingham’s first home game of the new season, a 1-0 victory over Leeds United. The seven-time Super Bowl champion was welcomed by the team’s enthusiastic fans.
But Birmingham abruptly sacked manager Eustace in October and brought in Wayne Rooney after he left Major League Soccer side D.C. United.
Rooney took over on October 11, and the team won just one of its next seven games, sparking dissatisfaction among fans, with some blaming Brady for a coaching change.
Birmingham face Rotherham at St Andrews on Saturday. Rotherham are second from bottom in the 24-team league and Birmingham have slipped to 16th since Rooney took over.
Brady shared a photo of the field on Instagram on Saturday with the caption: “Great day at St. Andrew’s Field.”
On Saturday, the team also shared a video of Brady greeting Looney before the game.
