FORMER Town chairman Terry Fisher was today confirmed as the leader of a consortium bidding to save troubled Leeds United.
He revealed he was heading a team of "serious businessmen" aiming to put together a rescue package.
The admission came less than a month after Mr Fisher told the Examiner he took exception to being described in the media as a "staunch" Leeds fan.
He said he watched the club but Town would always be in his heart.
Mr Fisher said today: "I have been asked to get involved in the consortium by the people at Zeus Capital corporate finance specialists because of my football background as a Leeds United supporter and also due to my experience as chairman of Huddersfield Town.
"It can only be done, however, if we have the support from other businessmen within Leeds.
"We have had some support already but we are looking for more so we can strengthen our position still further."
He warned there was no benefactor like Roman Abramovich - the multimillionaire owner of Chelsea - ready to instantly wipe out the club's £80m-plus debts.
Mr Fisher, who lives in Spain, is heading the second consortium trying to save the Elland Road club.
Another group is believed to include former Bradford City chairman Geoffrey Richmond.
