English soccer adopts Rooney Rule for national team jobs

Glenn, who has admitted the FA is too male, white and old, insisted a series of new initiatives and investments announced yesterday aimed at increasing grassroots funding and boosting diversity would have a "significant impact" on both the organisation itself and English football.

Glenn said he hoped more opportunities would arise but also stressed that at the FA the rule would apply "to football staff all round", meaning a future manager would have to consider ethnic minority candidates when assembling a back-room team.

Named after the late Dan Rooney, the former owner of American football team the Pittsburgh Steelers, the policy has spread to sports around the world.

Senior executives at the FA apologised to England women's players Eni Aluko and Drew Spence and admitted serious failings within the organisation in front of a Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee previous year.

The FA's push to foster greater diversity follows a damaging row previous year around the women's team involving allegations of racism and sex discrimination by striker Eni Aluko, which led to a parliamentary hearing.

Research conducted in November showed 22 of 482 roles across England's top-four leagues were filled by coaches from BAME backgrounds.

"But I think it's fair to say is what we've seen is there are probably some differences in what they would expect to hear or say".

That incident led to a British government hearing in which Glenn and FA chairman Greg Clarke were questioned about the FA's culture.

GARETH SOUTHGATE'S successor as England manager will be picked according to the Rooney Rule.

Ashworth was interviewed by MPs at a parliamentary inquiry over the FA's handling of Aluko's discrimination claims against Sampson after he led an internal investigation into the case, which was described as "not a genuine search for the truth" by the Professional Footballers' Association.

The prize fund for the FA Cup will be doubled from next season, while the debt on rebuilding Wembley will be paid off by 2024, several years early, saving £2-3m a year in interest payments.

Kick It Out chair Lord Ouseley believes the FA's proposals represent a big step towards making football "a game inclusive for all".

Regarding changes made to the FA's whistle-blowing procedures, Glenn said Aluko had made a contribution.

"This could have been done four or five years ago", he told BBC Radio 5 live.

Glenn also said the FA would make it easier for players and staff to air grievances and that he meant to oversee attempts to change the culture around the England women's team following allegations of race discrimination by Eniola Aluko. "I think it's something [the FA] should do across the board and even take a role in ensuring the PL and EFL have this as a mandatory process as well".
