The Premier League, PFA and EFL have launched a new scheme aimed at increasing the number of Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) players transitioning into full-time coaching roles in the professional game.
U.K Football chiefs say the new scheme will initially produce at least six coaches per season.
The lack of representation of Black people in senior leadership roles in football has been the spotlight because of the increased focus on the Black Lives Matter movement.
At the moment, only six of the 91 Premier league and EFL managers or head coaches are from a black, Asian and minority ethnic background.
But the new scheme which is jointly funded by the Premier League and the professional Football Association, PFA is aimed helping more blacks become full-time coaches.
