EFL introduces 'Rooney Rule' Can't Post or Reply Privately

I see the EFL has introduced its own 'Rooney Rule' at today's AGM, meaning clubs will now need to ensure at least one black, Asian or ethnic minority candidate is interviewed for any managerial role that becomes vacant: https://www.efl.com/...elp-improve-equality

Interesting to see what, if any, impact it has. Although I'm not one for quotas it's hard to see a downside to this.

Itís a sad, sorry state of affairs if this rule is necessary.

Best person for the job IMO; Black, white, male, female, gay, straight. Doesnít matter to me.

Yes, apparently it is to address a sad, sorry state of affairs. Note the rule does not affect the club in appointing the best person for the job.

I was rather worried the rule meant that Wayne Rooney had to be interviewed for every job

So does this mean if a club invite applications for a managers job & no one applies from the categories listed they have to seek one out?

It's a bit unclear but I don't believe so, partly because I'm not sure it'd be practical (though that's not a given these days..) but also because it talks about being mandatory when clubs consider applicants. They could always drag in John Barnes though - he's been vocal about it and, with his track record in management, he'd probably appreciate an interview..
