Andy Murray is making the most of his recovery time, by playing fantasy football.
During a period of time when Murray took questions on Twitter, a fan asked for some advice on his fantasy football selection.
Thoughts on that Halep/Davis match, please? Views on players pushing for more prize money/independent union? Fantasy football tips for this weekend?— Dan King (@DanKing_1974) January 20, 2018
Er, thanks. On that bombshell...I've persevered with Burnley's Stephen Ward through his injury but am losing patience. Yet I don't have much cash to spare. Please help.— Dan King (@DanKing_1974) January 20, 2018
Andy offered up a solution to Dan’s problem, in Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles. It turns out in the system Dan uses, he can’t use Maitland-Niles because he is registered as a midfielder.
Now that I like. Maitland-Niles is classified as a midfielder, as another correspondent suggested, so would get no credit for clean sheets. It's a tricky one, and no mistake.— Dan King (@DanKing_1974) January 20, 2018
This was when the official Fantasy Premier League account got involved, giving different options for a fullback.
Unfortunately for Fantasy Premier League, Murray was ready to douse their enthusiasm with a bucket full of sass, revealing he’s using Fantasy League, instead of the other service.
He's a fullback in @fantasyleague which is the site I'm using this year..— Andy Murray (@andy_murray) January 20, 2018
Fans absolutely loved the exchange.
Nice one, Andy.
