St Pauli use man wearing mask of manager's face in unveiling of new signing

St Pauli manager Ewald Lienen misses the unveiling of new signing Marvin Ducksch, so the German club use a man wearing a mask of the boss's face.

German second-tier club St Pauli made up for their boss Ewald Lienen being unavailable for the unveiling of a new signing by using a man wearing a mask of the manager's face.

On Wednesday, the club announced the arrival of 22-year-old striker Marvin Ducksch from Borussia Dortmund, but Lienen was unable to pose for the official photos.

The next best thing for St Pauli was a man pretending to be Lienen with the help of a mask, but the masquerade was quickly spotted on social media.

The German outfit confirmed on their Twitter page that the manager's presence was faked, and added that it was a "one-off".
