OS reminds me of FIFA game, says Stanley boss

Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman has likened the Olympic Stadium to popular video game FIFA.

Coleman, speaking after last night's 1-0 reversal was asked what he thought of West Ham's new home and whether it was suitable for football.

To which he replied: "It's a bit surreal, to be honest. I'm not used to playing in Premier League stadiums anyway. It's the actual brightness of the whole thing.

"It felt like when I'm watching the lads playing FIFA on the coach.

"That's what it felt like; it felt like a computer game, watching it sitting down. That's why I had to stand up, to be honest!"

Coming to the UK on 29 September: FIFA 17

The latest iteration of the popular video game, FIFA 17, is released next week on all platforms. You may listen to Coleman's post-match press conference in full, right here.
