Dein loses FA post
David Dein remains on the FA board
Dein held the vice-chairman post since 2000
David Dein has lost his position as vice-chairman of the Football Association after the post was scrapped as part of restructuring.

Dein, Arsenal's vice-chairman, held the post since February 2000 but remains on the FA board, international committee and professional game board.

The FA pledged to undertake a major structural review following the recent Sven-Goran Eriksson affair.

English football's governing body is also looking for a new chief executive.

"In view of the current discussions over the restructuring of The Football Association, the professional game board decided that their nomination for the position of professional game vice-chair would not go forward," said an FA statement.

"David Dein, who held that post, therefore decided not to stand for re-election. David Dein has lost his position as vice-chairman of the Football Association."
