Last week, Birch told Accountancy Age that the role was not his ‘top priority’ and that he was ‘pursuing opportunities outside the game’.

A leading FA figure reportedly said that it was ‘disappointing’ that an interviewee for the role had ‘chosen to discuss the issue in the media before the process has been completed’.

It is believed that Birch, a former professional footballer, was concerned with the length of the FA’s appointment process.
