If Stuart Broad ever decides to give up cricket, a career in football management could be right around the corner.
The fast bowler is currently on tour with his England team-mates, preparing for the fourth test against South Africa, and is in outstanding form following his blitzing of the Proteas last week.
The lifelong Nottingham Forest fan’s display of taking four wickets from 23 balls was so spectacular that Football Manager director Miles Jacobson was suspicious that he was trying to get his day’s work out of the way before retuning home to an intense session of the virtual management game…

To be fair, he might not be Forest gaffer, but the squad he has amassed as the fictional manager of Manchester United is absolutely insane.

Neymar and Eden Hazard on the wings; Paul Pogba and David Luiz in front of the defence. Sack Louis van Gaal just now and give him the job!
The Old Trafford faithful would kill for a starting line-up like that at the moment.
We’re not entirely sure about Porto star Vincent Aboubakar making the cut, but he can always bring on Real Madrid starlet Martin Odegaard to change things up.
What do you think of Broad’s team? Can you better it?
