LONDON (Reuters) – The chief executive of the Football Association, Martin Glenn, has resigned and will leave his role in May of next year, England’s soccer body announce on Thursday.

Glenn, a former director at Leicester City, was appointed by the FA in March 2015 and oversaw the men’s senior team’s rise from a disappointing Euro 2016 campaign to a run to the World Cup semi-finals this year in Russia.

“On behalf of the Board of The FA, I would like to thank Martin for building and leading a senior management team that has transformed our organisation,” chairman Greg Clarke said in an FA statement.
