UEFA's Lee denies discussions with FA for Crozier job

UEFA communications boss Mike Lee has played down speculation he is in the running to replace Adam Crozier as chief executive of the Football Association.

Reports suggest Lee - UEFA's Switzerland-based director of comms and public affairs - has been shortlisted for the FA's CEO post, left vacant following the resignation of Crozier earlier this month (PRWeek, November 8).

Lee said he was 'not in discussions' with the FA over the role, but added: 'It's potentially an interesting job, but it's too early to comment.'

Others said to be in the running include Professional Footballers' Association CEO Gordon Taylor and former Football League chairman Keith Harris.

FA spokesman Andrin Cooper declined to comment on candidates for the role, but confirmed the body is drafting in headhunters to draw up a shortlist.

Meanwhile the FA has appointed company secretary Nic Coward and executive director David Davis as joint acting CEOs to head the association on an interim basis.
