London, Jan 7 (ANI): Brit singer Sir Elton John has returned to Watford FC for a visit after stepping down as its honorary president.
John, who is a football fanatic and lifelong supporter of the Hertfordshire club, stepped down two months ago, after an ongoing feud with chairman Graham Simpson.
But now with Simpson having resigned, there is the possibility that the singer might return and take back his seat.
The Hornets” manager Brendan Rodgers was delighted when John accepted his invitation to visit the club’’s training ground recently.
He is one of the most iconic figures associated with Watford Football Club. People like Elton John have been involved here for many years, the Daily Express quoted Rodgers as saying.
For me it’’s important to have people like that have a part in the future as well.
I was delighted when he accepted my invitation…and he was great with the players and staff. He rang me later when he got home, thanking me for the day, he added. (ANI)
