How injury led Lisa Manley from footballer to professional gamer and the abuse she receives

When I hit a man, say, five-six-zero, they get angry and start hating me. Professional footballer Lisa Manley sent not only very bad messages, but also violent ones.

But I’m just trying to take advantage of the situation. I know I’m good at something, and I’m bored with it, so it’s just an impulse that wants me to play more.

As a child Manley wanted to become a professional footballer, but that dream faded when she recovered from a long knee injury.

Nevertheless, she can still participate in the soccer masterclasses.

The 21-year-old has signed a contract with a professional Lester City export team defender Christian Fuchs and is one of Britain’s leading players.

I probably like real football as much as I like real football. Sometimes it annoys me that I can’t really play, but playing is a good substitute, she says to the sport.

She started playing soccer when she was five years old and represented Wimbledon and Fulham before her injury went away.

When I got injured, I had a lot of free time, so I started playing video games, including Fifa, a lot more. And as time went on, I won more and more matches, she says.

By spending a lot of time at home after an injury and with the added limitations caused by the coronavirus, she has gained extra time to improve her skills while she is on the ladder of her new career.

The Austrian international Fuchs founded its own team in 2018. Lisa appeared on the radar of the winner of the Premier League after she was fixed on the Twitch game platform.

He was looking for women for his team because there weren’t many. Apparently, I was happy to do it. She says my goal is to attract more women to gambling in general.

I thought I wasn’t good enough then, but I’ve gotten much better since then.

He’s a very good man, we mainly talk to each other via e-mail, but he’s obviously very busy. I played him once and I beat him 2-0. I played for Paris Saint-Germain, but in hindsight maybe I should have chosen Lester and put him in the starting eleven, she jokes.

With titles such as Fortnite, Call of Duty and League of Legends, the export sector is growing rapidly and showing no signs of slowing down.

The Fifa franchise is open for the 27th time. For the second year in a row, one of the most popular among the millions of players who play online together every week.

Manley says she often looks good in the weekly rankings, but only remembers a few times she played against another woman.

I probably play an average of four hours a day. I know it takes time and effort to become big enough in the gambling industry, but it’s certainly a chance if you can make enough money to live, she says.

Many are discouraged by the number of hours of training needed to reach an adequate level of competence and the abused women suffer if they gamble.

As actresses, you really feel a lot of hatred. I understand that people say I’m not very good, so why did I sign a contract with the team? Or tell me not to play, but to do other things. It’s probably no different than the hate women football players feel in real life, she says.

His future goals include qualifying for the ePremier League tournament and representing the United Kingdom in international gambling tournaments.

It also creates its own women only tournaments to attract more women.

I’m just trying to do my part and lead by example. After I decided to start my tournament, I contacted about 60 Fifa players who do this mainly for fun, but who are ready to participate in the tournament.

I hope there is no hate and that they will feel comfortable in this environment.
