Jason Roberts has welcomed the appointment of Paul Ince as new Blackburn manager.
"There is no reason why black people can't work as coaches or for the FA. There is a disproportionately low number of black people working in the game and that is a fact.
"But the appointment of Paul Ince is a positive thing, and it was a long time coming. The club and the manager can be proud.
"It opens the debate about why so many high-profile former players have not been given a chance to manage at this level yet."
