Gordon Taylor is set to resign as chief executive of the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) at the end of the season.

The 75-year-old has held the post since 1981 and has now confirmed his plan to depart after a review into the PFA’s finances was completed.

Taylor announced his intention to step down in March 2019 and will ultimately do so more than two years later when the 2020-21 campaign concludes.

“As I announced at our previous AGM, now that the Independent Review process has completed, I too will step down, by the end of the current season,” Taylor wrote in a widely reported letter to members ahead of Thursday’s AGM where members will vote on a new governance structure.

“A new chief executive will be elected following the recruitment procedure recommended by the Independent Review, and we have already made substantial progress in that direction. 

“I will of course be available in the future whenever needed to support the PFA.”
