Fancy tweeting for a footballer? You could earn over €40,000 for managing a Barcelona-based player's Twitter account.

And no, it's not a scam. It's been posted on journajobs.eu.

A growing trend for footballers unable to determine what is appropriate and what is inappropriate to post on the social networking site, the job on offer is to aid "one of the biggest football icons/megastars" in the world.

The job details

"This role is unique and will give you the opportunity to report and manage the global social media activity for a huge football star," the pitch reads.

Somewhat paradoxically though, it adds: "You don’t have to live in Barcelona but you must be willing to move there as this will be your base."
