FIFA 19: EA gave this winger 35 pace – and he’s absolutely furious

His solicitors are apparently getting involved

Kevin Ellison is a veteran of the game, having played for thirteen different clubs and making over 550 appearances in the Football League.

However, when it comes to FIFA, the winger won’t be getting anywhere near that much game time.

That’s because EA have given the 40-year-old a pace rating of 35 in FIFA 19 – and Ellison is not happy.

Ellison had 64 pace back in FIFA 11

Granted, with age Ellison’s speed has dropped off but surely making him utterly uselessis just rude?

Well, Ellison agrees.

In a tweet featuring his rating card and the caption ‘Just packed ye dar *laughing emoji* 35 pace for a left mid hahahahaha’ Ellison claimed to be talking with his solicitors about going after EA on the grounds of age discrimination!

Although it seems likely the veteran footie star is jesting, EA should be upping that pace to at least 80 out of respect for taking the joke so well.

If you are looking for a cheap LM, Ellison is definitely your man as he will soon be a steal for your Ultimate Team (especially with the pace buff he seems to think he will get).
