Former Charlton and Huddersfield boss Chris Powell has joined England director Gareth Southgate’s coaching team.
The move is part of a Football Association program made to”solve the challenge of under-representation” of black, black and minority ethnic (BAME) coaches.
Michael Johnson, who guided Guyana for their Gold Cup this summer, will team up with the England Under-21s.
There are just five supervisors in English football’s top four divisions.
England caped five times former left-back Powell during his acting career. He had caretaker spells in control of Leicester and Derby and has also managed Southend United.
The FA has declared that Matthew Thorpe, Marcus Bignot, Omer Riza along with Jason Euell will operate together with additional sides.
The governing body says the aim of its elite trainer placement programme, run along with the Professional Footballers’ Association, would be to”make sure the diversity of service staff better represent all players across groups, but also to continue to grow the ability pipeline of BAME coaches”.
Placements are set to run until Euro 2020 having more to follow later in the season as part.
“The PFA has assisted us to recruit a talented team of trainers who can now bring their various experiences and skillsets to the England men’s player pathway for the complete year ahead,” said FA technical director Les Reed.
In Junethe English Football League made it compulsory to interview at least one candidate while searching for a new first-team manager.
