Amar Singh, the Digital Sports Editor for the Evening Standard, discusses the issue.
Amar explains the deficit of people from BME backgrounds in coaching and managerial positions and why there has been a lack of attention to the matter.
He also explains why the 'Rooney Rule', which was established in the USA to give black candidates better chances for a job interview, would be a welcome addition to the UK but why such measures have so far been resisted.
Amar discusses the discrimination in football and the "overwhelmingly white" boardrooms and the potential of an uncurrent of racism flowing through football.
He calls for more black and minority coaches and for the world of football to rectify the sad matter that while children may see BME players on the pitch, they so far rarely get a chance to see people from BME backgrounds on the touchline.
