The sackings of Chris Powell and Chris Ramsey were "disheartening", says anti-racism campaigner Troy Townsend.

Powell departed Huddersfield and Ramsey left QPR to leave four bosses of black and minority ethnic (BME) and Asian backgrounds in the top four leagues.

"To lose both managers sends out a really strong message to those aspiring to get on this journey," said Townsend.

But former Chelsea defender Frank Sinclair disagreed and called Townsend's claims "damaging".

Last week the Football Association's newly appointed BME boss Wayne Allison said he wanted to increase the number of black coaches.

But the sackings of both Powell and Ramsey within the space of a few hours on Tuesday left numbers at a low and could discourage black coaches, according to Townsend.

"People will look and think 'Is it worth it? Is it because of the colour of their skin? Or is it because they are bad managers?," Townsend told BBC Radio 5 live.

"I know people will say results are not right but there is a lot more to it than that.

"Today is disheartening without a doubt."
Following on from this, I hope someone's told Troy Townsend what a c*nt he is

QPR plan to name their new manager this week from a shortlist of three - with Burton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, 43, favourite for the job ahead of former Charlton and Huddersfield manager Chris Powell, 46, and Walsall's Dean Smith, 44. (Daily Star)

Gary Nevilles odds on becoming next Fulham manager have just tumbled big time. Weird!

I'd love to see him go into management and fail miserably.

I have no idea what you're on about, but if you don't like someone, wouldn't you rather they fade into obscurity than become really rich, stressed out, and embarrassed for a while?

The fact it ended with a question mark doesn't mean you didn't try and tell Eucrid how he should feel though... Does it?
On a subject you admitted to not knowing anything about.

I know who you're talking about just not why you're talking about them.
But surely it can be applied to anything. All i heard was "This guy is inept. I hope this guy gets even richer, and then fails a little bit".

Gary Neville appointed manager of Valencia. That's a bit random.

I was sure that you mixed up Gary & Phil there.

Apparently the guy who owns Valencia also has a stake in Salford utd, the team the class of 92 are involved in. Kinda Explaining why Phil was there in the 1st place, and now Gary I guess

Who's Carra gonna chat with on a Monday?

He's not in charge for the Barca game on Sunday, although I guess Phil and the other coach will be

Needs to beat Lyon (who have nothing to play for) and Gent not to win at home vs Zenit (who are through but might wanna keep their 100% record) to make the knockouts. Could draw United then if they beat Wolfsburg
