A Football Manager fan achieved a lifelong dream when he was handed a job by Serbian side FK Bezanija for his achievements on the game.
Andrej Pavlovic, from Belgrade, won 11 league titles and six Serbian cups as well as reaching the Champions League semi-final in the space of 16 seasons.
In real life, things are not going so well on the pitch for Benzanija and they were relegated from the second to the sixth tier because of financial issues.
The 22-year-old decided to offer his services to the club and got in touch with them through their Facebook page.
He was amazingly offered a data analyst role and in his first month they have won five and drawn one and climbed from 13th to sixth in the table.

Posting on Reddit, Pavlovic also revealed he has revamped their website, is handling their social media and has even found them a sponsor.
He told SPORTbible: “I’m not going to brag but I am somewhat of a legend in my Football Manager universe.
“I reached out to them with my achievements on FM and suggested I could help them. I didn’t expect they would call me.
“We just had a friendly chat and the club director asked me if I can could come on Saturday for the first game to see how things go. I suggested I could help them out but I didn’t expect they would call me.
“I really couldn’t believe it. I was shocked but when we talked they asked me if I could volunteer for them as they are in a rough spot financially.”
