Omar Khan to take backseat at Bulls

Bradford owner Omar Khan is set to take a back seat in the running of the club following the arrival of deputy director Robbier Hunter-Paul.

Khan, who bought the Bulls out of administration last summer, has been responsible for day-to-day operations for the past 10 months.

But he and fellow directors Simon Kenny and Vipin Joshi will take a back seat, with Hunter-Paul and assistant director Roy Davison taking the reins alongside General Manager Ryan Whitcut.

Khan told the club’s official website: “From purchasing the club just over ten months ago, it’s been a massive eye opener as we’ve encountered so many obstacles, while trying to solve numerous issues left behind by the previous regime; including paying money out on numerous occasions to cover the costs.

“All this clearing and taking care of problems, have at times left me both physically and mentally drained.

“However, all of these things are in the past now as I’m really excited and looking forward to seeing the new management team we have put in place bring the good times back to the Provident Stadium.”

A fans forum will be held in the Coral Stand at Odsal tonight (Thursday) at 6.45pm, for supporters wishing to get a better understanding of the new management structure.
