Liam Rosenior: Derby coach on diversity, the "Rooney Rule" and working with Cuckold

-

In January, Liam Rosenior will be joined in Derby by former England captain Wayne Rooney, who will join Pride Park as a coach.

"For me, the big day is when we see women leaders, black women, white women – whoever it is – find a job as long as they are simply the best people for them."

Joining the new coaching team in Derby County, led by Phillip Cocu, three-time Dutch title winner, took Liam Rosenior nearly 15 years.

The move also comes a month after the English Football League made it mandatory for clubs to interview at least one black, Asian and ethnic minority (BAME) candidate when they are looking for a new director of the first team.

The settlement, known unofficially as the "Rooney Rule" – named after the chair of the NFL's Diversity Committee, Dan Rooney, who helped establish politics in American football – is a topic on which Rosenior has spoken at length in the past.
