5 hilarious stories involving footballers and FIFA
- Footballers love playing FIFA and sometimes their love for the game makes the headline
4. Adebayo Akinfenwa
Wycombe Wanderers’ Adebayo Akinfenwa has developed something similar to a cult following. He became quite popular because he is considered to be the strongest player in the FIFA franchise. The bulky forward has good ratings which have always encouraged players to make the most out of The Beast.
However, Akinfenwa has something else to say about his ratings. His power comes at the cost of speed and he slyly admitted that he doesn't like to play as himself because he is quite slow and frustrating.
While everyone likes to have a fast striker in their ranks, Akinfenwa must have known that playing with himself will always amount to seeing him in real life, full of hustle but little in the way of speed. It suggests that Akinfenwa doesn't clearly know his own strengths and weaknesses.
