The Premier League’s coach inclusion and diversity scheme is aiming to increase the number of black, Asian and mixed heritage coaches in the professional game.
Goater will do a 23-month placement at the City Football Academy in a youth set-up widely regarded as among the finest in the country.
The 51-year-old joins the likes of West Ham academy coach Nicole Farley on the programme. Farley was announced as the club’s first female coach last month.
