The Premier League, EFL and PFA launched a new player-to-coach placement scheme aimed at increasing the number of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) players transitioning into full-time coaching roles in the professional game.

The scheme provides up to six coaches per season with a 23-month intensive work placement within EFL clubs.

This is one example of how football is creating opportunities and pathways within coaching.

Doncaster Rovers manager and Chair of the Premier League's Black Participants' Advisory Group Darren Moore said: "This is a critical time for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic coaches.

"We all know and agree that the diversity of coaches and managers must increase and this placement scheme represents a positive step."

The scheme has been developed over the last 18 months and complements the existing programme within the Premier League Elite Coach Apprenticeship Scheme, which provides a bursary for BAME and female coaches to be placed within Premier League and Category One Academies each year.
