“Derby County is a club with a rich history and one of the best groups of supporters in all of England,” he added. “While the club is currently going through a really tough time, it is the supporters and everyone associated with the club that have stayed loyal, which provide the foundation to rebuild again. I want to be a part of that rebuild and support that effort.
