Gordon Taylor is defined to announce he’s standing down as leader of the Professional Footballers’ Association after 38 years in the role.
It follows a mutiny out of PFA chairman Ben Purkiss and players on government problems and controversy across Taylor’s £2.2m wages in comparison with the quantity of money given to player welfare services.
A statement is anticipated to be issued at the start of PFA’s annual general meeting that’s occurring on Wednesday in Manchester.
The meeting should have happened in November.
Taylor has been advised by senior colleagues that if he would like to don’t be contested at the meeting, he needs to announce his death.
It is understood that Taylor’s inclination is always to oversee the appointment of a successor and stay in place until the completion of a different government review which has been recently announced, but it’s uncertain if that will be deemed okay.
