A case of mistaken identity!

A case of mistaken identity!

A junior football coach landed a job as the manager of Seychelles’ national team after the country’s football association mistook him for former Manchester City defender Andy Morrison.

Andrew Amers-Morrison got the job while he was on holiday in the tropical island.

The local federation confused Amers-Morrison, 40, with the former City player who turned out for Kevin Keegan’s side, handing the holidaymaker a two-year contract.

Chairman Suketu Patel said: “We thought we were getting the real Andy Morrison, but instead we have an impostor.”

After realising that a mistake had been made, Amers-Morrison’s new bosses called him in for a meeting where they incredibly gave him six months grace to prove he was up to the task. Amers-Morrison did attempt to become a professional player in his youth, but saw his progress hampered by a series of injuries.
