Azerbaijan team FK Baku have confirmed that ambitious Football Manager gamer Vugar Huseynzade will become the club's new coach.
Having just sacked former Olympiakos defender Bozdar Bandovic, the side was looking for a new person to fill in the role, with ex-France striker Jean-Pierre Papin being among the competition that the 21-year-old beat.
Huseynzade, who never held a similar position before, has
been playing the video game for 10 years, which the club feels is enough to warrant giving him a chance at the touchline.
"I've always wanted to work in football and have played Football Manager since 2002," Huseynzade was quoted as saying by Metro.co.uk.
