Sheffield Wednesday boss named alongside Marcus Rashford, Ivan Toney and others on Football Black List

Sheffield Wednesday’s Darren Moore was named on the Football Black List for 2021, alongside the likes of Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford, and Alex Scott.

Tuesday, 26th October 2021, 5:00 pm

Moore, who remains one of a very limited number of black figures in football management in the European football, has been recognised as one of the ‘influential game-changers’ by co-founder, Leon Mann, and someone who is evidence of ‘the contribution black communities are making to football’.

The FBL, which was founded in 2008 by Mann and Rodney Hinds, is ‘positioned to help shine a light on the black professionals working in the industry’ in order ‘to inspire the next generation of leaders in sport’.
