Outgoing manager Glenn Hoddle’s Monday meeting with CEO Jez Moxey has been put on hold.

Jez told the clubs official site :

‘Glenn has informed me that he has a family issue he needs to deal with today and so he is unable to make the meeting,’

‘He has said he will contact me later today to confirm when he will be available to meet.

‘In the meantime, the board of directors are drawing up a plan of action.’

The decision to postpone the meeting to finalise Hoddle’s exit from the club will ultimately be seen as another case of Glenn Hoddle not wanting to face the music.

And after attempting to bury news of his resignation by releasing a statement an hour before the most important National team game for 4 years he may now find himself friendless in the West Midlands for quite a long time.
