Chelsea are launching their next edition of 'Search for the next Asian star'.
Nicolas Anelka is an ambassador for the Asian Soccer Star programme and the striker welcomes the return of the scheme.
"Asian Star is making a real difference," he told chelseafc.com.
"Everyone should have the same chances to play no matter what backgrounds they come from and this programme is offering young Asian players the opportunities they deserve."
Asian Soccer Star trials are open to players in the Under 9, 10, 11 and 12 age groups from all Asian backgrounds, however a priority will be given to players from Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi backgrounds.
