Bradford City are delighted to announce the return of former chairman Julian Rhodes, who has taken up a consultancy position with the club.

Rhodes will be working alongside joint owners Stefan Rupp and Edin Rahic.

He served as chairman for more than 12 years and guided the club to some of its most recent, memorable success stories - after helping rescue it from administration back in 2004.

Rhodes said: “It is a privilege to be back here and I will do all I can to help turn things around.

“The season hasn’t started how any of us would have hoped but everyone is committed to ensuring it ends on a much more positive note.

“We have to look forward. This club has been in worse positions in the past and we have overcome them.”

In a joint statement, Rupp and Rahic added: “We are privileged to be welcoming Julian back to the club and he has our full support.

“Following a period of reflection, we felt the time was right to seek assistance of a true Bradford City man who knows the club inside out and can offer day-to-day guidance.

“His expertise will be paramount in helping us turn things around. He will be working closely with me and Stefan while building a strong relationship with David Hopkin.”
