Horne eyes permanent transfer to Wembley

Wembley Stadium’s acting MD Alex Horne has put himself in the frame for a permanent move to the top job

Horne, also the FD of the Football Association, successfully turned the
struggling project around after the £757m operation had become mired in
difficulties.

‘It’s a fantastic job. If the opportunity arose for me to stay on and take
the job permanently, I’d be very interested,’ said Horne.

Wembley is still in talks with Brent Council to secure the safety certificate
which would allow the stadium to operate at its 90,000 capacity, but Horne was
‘very pleased with the progress week to week’.

Horne added that Wembley was still firmly on track to showcase the FA Cup in
May.
