Rehman expands Asian sport charity

By Will Astbury

Former Bradford City captain Zesh Rehman has extended the services of his sporting charity to schools in Manchester.

The 27-year-old footballer, who was the first British Asian to play in the Premier League, signed for Thai side Muangthong United in late December but before he left took the time to establish the Zesh Rehman Foundation’s (ZRF) first project in the North West.
