Taylor: No barriers to Asians in England

Swansea City defender Neil Taylor does not believe there are any barriers preventing Asian players making it to the professional level of the game in England.

Neil Taylor Swansea
Neil Taylor is one of just eight British Asians to play in England's four professional divisions.

Taylor, 24, is the most high-profile British Asian player, having played in the Premier League for Swansea since 2012.

But despite Asians making up 7.5 percent of the population in England --according to the 2011 census -- there is little representation in professional football in the country.

There are currently only eight players plying their trade as professionals in England and the FA is to announce plans to improve Asian inclusion later this year.

But Taylor, whose father is English and mother is from Kolkata in India, told BBC Sport: “Hopefully, we'll see more Asian players in the next few years. But I don't think there's anything out there stopping people.

"It's not like there's a barrier the FA has to lift up and say right you can now come and coach and play. There's no discrimination.

"But if they're going to encourage it more that's great and we need more Asians to be playing."

Wales international Taylor says he would be happy to work with the FA to help develop Asian players, adding: "I'm already trying to do things myself in terms of finding out if there's more talent and how to bring them through.

"I went out to India last year to discover what football was like there. I learnt that it's big - bigger than I was expecting it to be."
