FOREST Green boss Mark Cooper says he agrees with Mansfield boss David Flitcroft after he compared football management to the dating app Tinder.

The duo come up against each other at the New Lawn this afternoon in a crucial promotion clash.

Flitcroft believes there is no patience in football which has also been echoed in the world of dating and another managerial sacking (Darrell Clarke from Bristol Rovers) has brought up the debate once again.

Flitcroft said: "Everyone wants things instantly now," he told BBC Radio Nottingham.

"You can put a box set on and watch it for 10 hours instead of waiting for a week for the next episode.

"You used to have to chat a bird up but now you can just swipe left or right on Tinder. It's the way life is. Nobody's got any patience anymore."

The Rovers boss didn't disagree with his opposite number and added: "To an extenti agree.

"They’ll (Bristol Rovers) probably go and get a foreign manager and if you ask most British managers in the EFL they have to go through an awful lot of time and expense to get their coaching qualifications and it takes years and years.

"Any foreign manager can come and take one of our jobs and I’m not sure we can do that in their lower leagues.

“It’s disappointing for Darrell Clarke and I’m sure he’ll be back in work but I agree with Flitcroft’s sentiments."
