Kick It Out campaigner Troy Townsend has hit out at Brighton after their ‘shabby’ sacking of Chris Hughton left Nuno Espirito Santo as the only BAME manager in the Premier League.
Hughton was axed a day after the end of a season which finished with Brighton one place above the drop zone.
But the decision has left Townsend questioning whether the game really cares about lack of representation among managers.
“We are now at worse than square one,” Townsend told The Telegraph. “People took my words out of context when Darren Moore was sacked. What people don’t understand is the real difficulties for black managers getting through the bottle neck at the top of football. We are talking about measly numbers.”
