PFA chief Taylor to step down

Gordon Taylor will stand down as the chief executive of the English Professional Footballers’ Association at the end of the season after 40 years in the role. The PFA has faced renewed criticism in recent weeks over the union’s record on supporting former players suffering from dementia, in the wake of Nobby Stiles' recent death and Bobby Charlton’s diagnosis with the condition. John Stiles, the son of the deceased England World Cup winner, called for Taylor’s resignation, saying he had “no confidence that the PFA leadership team can address the scandal” of the large number of retired players suffering from neurodegenerative diseases.
