Former England and Villa Manager Graham Taylor has died aged 72


Former Aston Villa and England manager Graham Taylor has died.

He was aged 72.

Taylor became a legendary figure at Villa after leading them from Division Two to runners up in Division One in the late 1980s.



His success at Villa earned him the England job.

He subsequently went on to manage Wolves and returned for a second spell at Villa Park.

Taylor made his name managing Watford.

In more recent years he was a football pundit.  

It is thought the English football this weekend will hold a silence in rememberance of the former England manager.
