FA tackles lack of Asian players
- From the section Football
The Football Association has published its first plan on how to tackle the lack of British Asians in football.
Despite making up the largest ethnic minority group in the country, few Asian players have featured in the professional leagues in recent seasons.
Following consultation forums across the country, the FA says it will now provide more support to grassroots clubs developing Asian players, as BBC Sport's Chetan Pathak reports.
