Three-time grand slam champion Andy Murray fancies himself as the next Jose Mourinho, due to his love of fantasy football.
Murray has recently spoken of his interest in a change of sport following his retirement from tennis, although he has no specific plans.
However, his enjoyment of fantasy football – Murray chose Paulo Dybala, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in his 2016-17 World11 – means the 30-year-old has a particular role in mind.
“I have no idea [what to do in football] – I just find the sport really interesting,” he told FIFA.com, ahead of The Best awards.
“I love reading, watching and talking about football, so, if I wanted to do something that wasn’t tennis that I thought I was passionate enough about, I’d maybe look at doing something in football.
“I’m a huge fantasy football fan, so I’d probably quite fancy myself as a manager – but it’s completely different doing it in real life, definitely not as easy as everyone thinks.”
