FC Baku is one of the football teams of the capital city of Azerbaijan. The club just chose the new manager: an unknow guy of 21 years of age. Vugar Guloglan Oglu Huseynzade has never trained a real team before, he was hired for his knowledge of Football Manager, the videogame.

Considering the fact that videogames nature is getting closer and closer to real nature, this makes sense from a next nature point of view, but I have to say this is still a brave decision for a football club. We will follow them in the next games. Go Baku!

These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
