Undeniable Proof That Sport Is Firmly In The Age Of Social Media

We are definitely in the age of social media. Not only are some managers hired on the basis of their Football Manager experience, but news travels fast on Twitter or Facebook these days.

Sometimes, the news travels so fast, that everyone on Facebook knows about what has happened before some within the club have.

Take the Bosnian club FK Drina Zvornik for example. Struggling at the bottom of the Bosnian Premier League, the club made the not unsurprising decision to sack their manager Vladica Petrovic


Except that Petrovic wasn't told. Actually, Petrovic found out that he lost his job by looking at the link posted on facebook. He commented underneath with the phrase "Thanks for the tip!".

It's poor form from a club to announce that a manager has been sacked before actually telling the person. That sort of thing wouldn't happen in Ireland at all.
