75% of Applications for Dumbarton Manager’s Job From FIFA 12 Addicts Who Have Won the Champions League

Worth a try.

Check-In to Chelsea v Man United

Scottish club Dumbarton have seen their attempts to recruit a new boss held up after they were inundated with applicants whose only managerial experience is from playing computer games.

The club sacked Alan Adamson on Monday after sinking to the bottom of the First Division and chief executive Gilbert Lawrie immediately advertised the position, asking candidates to submit CVs by email.

But Gilbert revealed that when he checked his inbox it was full of optimistic applications boasting of glory on games such as Football Manager and FIFA.

Lawrie said: ‘I’ve had dozens and dozens of applications and it takes a while to shift through the CVs of people who have won the Champions League and FIFA 12.

‘Probably 75 per cent of the applications so far are from people who have taken a team from a low ebb to great heights via a computer screen, which is a great achievement for them but perhaps not we are looking for at this time.

Fortunately Dumbarton did receive some applications from individuals with ACTUAL managerial experience as opposed to those who find it hard to separate fantasy from reality.
