When it comes to FIFA 17's slowest player, many are quick to assume it's Arsenal centre-back Per Mertesacker - but that's not actually the case.

Despite his relatively high overall rating of 83 and 88 defending, the German is excrutiatingly slow and always an easy target for the opposition.

He has 27 pace for God's sake.

Speed is everything on FIFA, which makes it impossible to pick players like Mertesacker knowing someone of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Marco Reus' speed would absolutely roast him.

But believe it or not, there are slower players than Mertesacker out there.

Over the past couple of months we've brought to you a few speed tests, created by YouTuber Wrzzer, that have proved Mathis Bolly, not Aubameyang, is FIFA 17's fastest player.

It's also been revealed that Gareth Bale is the fastest dribbler on the game.

Another speed test has now emerged identifying FIFA 17's slowest player and trust me when I say, it's a pretty painful watch.

Arsenal Training Session

Mertesacker and Rangers' Clint Hill are the only two recognised names in the 16-man race, which is divided into four heats.

And when it comes to the final, Mertesacker, 39-year-old Frode Kippe, Stade Reims' Anthony Weber and Oswaldo Vizcarrondo are left to battle it out having lost their previous races.

Check out the slowest race ever below.

So, there you have it - despite having +2 pace over Mertesacker and Vizcarrondo, Weber is officially FIFA 17's slowest player.

A closer look at the Frenchman's statistics suggest why he came last: he has 25 acceleration, which is one less than Mertesacker (26), who somehow finished first.

If there's a lesson to be learnt here, NEVER think of buying Weber for your Ultimate Team.
