Football video game rage quits are a very real phenomenon. And its latest victim is Bournemouth defender Steve Cook’s computer. According to Cook, the casualty occurred after conceding a late goal to lose a match in Football Manager. The photo he tweeted revealed a busted a screen that appears to have been punched.

Cook, of course, is not the first Premier League footballer to unleash a wave of destruction after losing in a football video game, though. Romelu Lukaku broke a Playstation controller after losing to teammate Kevin Mirallas in FIFA 14.
EA Sports was kind enough to replace it for him. We’ll see if Sports Interactive will spring for a new laptop for Cook.
