The LinkedIn profile of ex-Birmingham and Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish

Presumably this is a spoof (we really hope not), but if it is someone has gone to a lot of effort to create a pretty decent LinkedIn profile for out-of-work football manager Alex McLeish.

The profile on the corporate social networking site is fairly up-to-date, making mention of McLeish’s recent brief stint at Nottingham Forest.

Listed among key responsibilities is: “Responsible for the efficient, effective and prudent management of the overall football budget set by the board of directors of the club’s business sector, enabling a sustainable operation.”

He’s been endorsed for his negotiation, management and budgets skills, but not for his football and team-building skills.
