Taylor fills the breach at Watford

Published Add your comment

Former Watford manager Graham Taylor has been appointed interim chairman at Vicarage Road.

The 65-year-old former England boss has taken on the role after Jimmy Russo resigned on Tuesday and demanded the immediate repayment of a loan of almost £5million.

Taylor is attempting to stave off the threat of administration and wants Russo to accept a proposal from major shareholder Lord Michael Ashcroft, who is underwriting a £7.5million rights issue in a bid to repay the loan and keep the club afloat.
