EDIN Rahic has this afternoon left Bradford City by mutual consent.

Julian Rhodes will operate as interim chief executive until the end of the current season.

This comes after talks between Rahic and Stefan Rupp.

City's majority shareholder said: "The time for change has come and this marks the beginning of a new chapter for the club.

"The people of Bradford deserve much, much better.

"I will do everything in my power to wash away the dreadful memories of the last 12 months and consign them to the history books for good.

"I have invested significantly in the club over the past two seasons and will continue to do so.

"David Hopkin has begun to turn our on-field fortunes around and he and the players need your support to help us in the hugely-challenging weeks and months ahead."
