Fosu-Mensah is yet to play for United this season.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah isn't happy with his face on FIFA 17 - we can see why

Published 1 Comments

With the release of FIFA 17 less than two weeks away, a lot of player ratings have been revealed and it's safe to say that Manchester United's Timothy Fosu-Mensah is among the highest-rated teenagers in the entire game.

Not only would he be a good way for Ultimate Team lovers to begin building their squads, but with one of the best potential growth rates in FIFA 17, the youngster is also set to be a huge hit with fans of Career Mode.

Fosu-Mensah's versatility is highlighted by the fact that he is listed on the game as a central defensive midfielder, even though he broke into the United first-team last season at centre-back and more prominently at right-back.

So, despite a breakthrough year and making it onto the world's biggest football video game, the young Dutchman still isn't satisfied and he has called out EA Sports on Twitter to ask them for one thing.

In a hilarious message, which you can see below, Fosu-Mensah tweeted the gaming franchise asking them to give him a face since, in his opinion, he has been given a generic run-of-the-mill face in FIFA 17.

EA usually go to clubs and scan the faces of high-profile players in the build-up to each edition of the game as they aim to give fans a more realistic and lifelike gaming experience, however they didn't scan Fosu-Mensah.

Fosu-Mensah's FIFA stats

For someone so young, Fosu-Mensah has done incredibly well to earn a silver card in the upcoming FIFA and it's a sign of the undeniable ability which he possesses.

A summary of his FIFA stats show that he has been given particularly impressive scores for pace, defending and physicality, as well as four star weak foot.


The powerful, aggressive starlet certainly has the attributes to become a top-class defensive midfielder, he himself has said that it is the role where he eventually wants to end up, and judging by his FIFA 17 position, EA agrees with him.

While Fosu-Mensah might not be happy with his appearance in FIFA 17, his PES alternative isn't much better...
