This is Tommy Käßemodel, of FC Erzgebirge Aue. You can play him in FIFA 18. He's not very good.

He's one of the lowest-ranked players, in fact! Most players have a ranking of between 60 and 90 - his is 46!

His pace rating is just 23. By comparison, Messi's is 91!

He's joint-bottom, a position he shares with 9 other players. But there's something that makes him different to those other players. Tommy Käßemodel isn't a professional footballer!

He's actually the team's kit man!

There's a rule in German football where every senior team needs to have at least 4 people on the squad who came up through their youth training programme. FC Erzgebirge Aue only had 3, but their kit man had been part of the training programme, so BAM, he became part of the squad!

So, as a non-footballer, he's actually doing pretty well!

He's rated as being just as good as 9 people who actually get paid to play football! Not bad! Way less rubbish than we thought! Good work, Tommy!
