Former Birmingham City football player Trevor Francis, 69, who played for Nottingham Forest, is said to have departed, leaving the neighbourhood in mourning and ruin.
As news of Trevor’s passing spreads, everyone becomes upset and in grief. However, this information is still unsubstantiated, and the family has not issued any formal remarks regarding Trevor Francis’s passing.
Therefore, it appears that the news of his death is only a rumour spread to catch the interest of his loved ones and attract attention.
Trevor John Francis, an English professional football player born on April 19, 1954, played forward for several clubs in England, the United States, Italy, Scotland, and Australia.
After moving from Birmingham City to Nottingham Forest in 1979, he became the country’s first player to earn $1 million.
In the 1979 European Cup Final between Forest and Malmo, he scored a game-winning goal for Forest. The next year, he won the European Cup again with the team.
He participated in the 1982 FIFA World Cup and played 52 times for England internationally between 1976 and 1986, scoring 12 goals.
Francis played his final game for England in 1986, a win over Scotland. However, he was not chosen to play in the Mexico World Cup.
He steered Wednesday to an outstanding third-place finish in 1992. The team made it to the next year’s FA Cup and League Cup finals. However, they lost to Arsenal, and the FA Cup final required a rematch.
Francis took over as manager of Sheffield Wednesday after Ron Atkinson left, and the team and supporters embraced him wholeheartedly.
He managed football teams from 1988 to 2003, notably Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City. In 2003, he quit his last managing position at Crystal Palace.
Brian Clough’s Nottingham Forest, the current First Division and League Cup champions, made a bid for Francis that was slightly over £1 million. Before this deal was finalized, no player had ever been traded between English clubs.
