Crozier resigns as FA chief

The Football Association chief executive Adam Crozier tonight announced his resignation amid the fall–out from a dispute with the Premier League.

The issue came to a head following calls from the Premier League for a 'professional game board' to be established, a move which Crozier opposed as he believed it would weaken the role of the FA.

Following talks with FA chairman Geoff Thompson this week, Crozier felt that his position was untenable and has therefore handed in his notice.
