One of the strongest footballers in the world, Adebayo Akinfenwa, has asked EA Sports to make him a little faster in subsequent video games.
Akinfenwa, who plays for league two side AFC Wimbledon, has a strength rating of 97 out of 100 in FIFA 14 – the best of any player- but has a sprint speed rating of 53 and acceleration of 37.
Akinfenwa said to Telegraph,
“I didn’t realise how big FIFAwas until last year. I’d always been one of the strongest players in the game, but officially in FIFA 14 I was the strongest in the world.
“If they say so, I must be. I like that.
“I’ve played as myself a few times and I’m very slow. I’ve asked FIFAto make me a little bit quicker, but you can’t have everything. I’ve always been big, my brothers are my size, we come from good stock.”
