Danny Leadbitter has told the Hereford Times that he has been approached by both new 'coach' Mark Ellis and 'majority shareholder' Tommy Agombar.
"I had a phone call from Mark Ellis and everything he said sounded brilliant," said Leadbitter.
"We were encouraged by him and thought it was a turnaround for the club.
"I then spoke to Tommy Agombar, who echoed the same things and was also really encouraging.
"But the longer it went, I just couldn't wait any longer and had to go.
"I just feel so sorry for the fans.
"Players and staff come and go, but the fans are there from the beginning until the end.
"They do not deserve this."
