Gordon Taylor likely to remain Professional Footballers’ Association chief for several months

Gordon Taylor appears likely to remain as chief executive of the Professional Footballers’ Association well into 2021.

The 75-year-old said in March 2019 he would stand down following the completion of an independent review into governance at the players’ union but the process to appoint his successor still has some way to go.

The review was completed in the summer and the PFA said in August that it was working through the recommendations.

One of those was the appointment of four non-executive directors to the board, whose first job will be to run the recruitment process for a new chief executive.

A three-man selection panel, which includes former Manchester United and England defender Gary Neville, will be involved in the appointment of the non-executive directors alongside head-hunting firm Odgers Berndtson, with the three-man panel then disbanding.

It is unclear when a separate Charity Commission statutory inquiry into the union will be completed.

The Commission announced the opening of the inquiry in January.
