Rio Ferdinand backs equal opprtunities for managers

Rio Ferdinand backs the idea of making sure qualified ethnic minority coaches are on interview lists for job vacancies.

The Professional Footballers' Association has issued a six-point action plan to deal with racism in football.

Criticised for not doing enough to tackle the problem, the PFA says it is now time for tougher penalties and Ferdinand welcomes the plan.
