Controversial Vice-Chairman Charles Machin has revealed to his favourite newspaper – the Staffordshire Sentinel – that he is considering his position on the Port Vale board.
Machin has supported a takeover bid by Italian football agent Gianni Paladini, but that was rejected in favour of a minority shares undertaking by a fans consortium led by Peter Jackson.
The Sentinel once again appears to be favourable in its support of Machin saying:
In fairness to Machin, the founder of Valiant 2001, he was undoubtedly sincere when he said: “I am happy that Port Vale is secure, as the chairman said. That is what I wanted.”
However, he is considering his future, and it seems he may not still be on the board when Jackson begins his quest to restore the club’s fortunes.
