Adam Kneale sent an application letter to Liverpool after Brendan Rodgers was sacked as manager at the weekend - citing his success with Pompey on FIFA 15.
Mr Kneale said he had won the Premier League and European titles with the Blues on the video game.
Amazingly he received a letter from Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre saying he hadn’t been successful – as he did not have ‘the required standard of experience’ the Reds were looking for.
Mr Ayre said: ‘Unfortunately, we are unable to process your interest at this time as we are looking for someone with more experience that you have provided; taking Portsmouth Football Club from the 2nd Division and going on to winning the Premier League and Champions League in four seasons on FIFA 15; it is not the required standard of experience we are looking for at this time.’
