ABC2 sensation Aaron Chen set to remain in football

-

The Football Sack can exclusively reveal that state federations around the country are lining up to sign ABC2 internet sensation Aaron Chen to their media teams.

The previously unheralded and clearly untalented reporter came to the attention of audiences during last night’s mickey mouse friendly between Sydney FC and Liverpool FC in Sydney.

Chen’s interviews with fans on the sidelines drew heavy criticism on social media – obfuscating the general inadequacies of the national broadcasters whole production.

However state federations who have long been renowned for their inability to understand the needs of fans and deliver a professional product in their live streams are understood to be bowled over by Chen’s performance.

“My electric typewriter doesn’t get Facebook, but our unpaid intern told me his performance at half-time overshadowed the match, which I also didn’t bother watching,” said the CEO of one of the largest state federations.

“We would be very interested in having him on our stream lives and our cast pods,” he added.

When asked if Chen’s role would be in half-time fan engagement, the CEO said, “Well, we don’t actually do anything to promote local games, so we don’t have more than a handful of fans and those are usually just the parents of the players.

“In fact, if it wasn’t for broken marriages and step parents our crowds would be about half than what they are….ummm, what was the question again?”

TFS sought comment from Chen but was only met by a nonsensical answering machine message.
