Leicester respond brilliantly to Wes Morgan's 29 pace rating on FIFA 20

Well played, Leicester

It's rare that a footballer is pleased with their rating on FIFA.

Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was seen complaining on social media about his 88-rated card, stating that he should be closer to 89 or 90.

Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho was also fuming after his 84-rated card was only rewarded with 77 passing.

There's just no pleasing these elite athletes, but in the case of Leicester City defender Wes Morgan, it's hard not to think that the Jamaican has been a tad hard done by.

Morgan is far from in his prime, but the Foxes man has been handed a woeful 29 rating for pace on FIFA 20, something which he was not particularly happy about.

Morgan wrote on Twitter next to a picture of his FIFA 20 card: "@EASPORTSFIFA taking the absolute p*ss with these stats!???"

That pace rating really is painfully slow, making him literally unusable on the game - unless you fancy a bit of nostalgia on career mode or fancy a real challenge on Ultimate Team.

But Leicester have decided to come out and support their player in a rather hilarious manner, posting a video of Morgan sprinting an entire football pitch in 9.59 seconds.

Morgan is yet to start a PL game this season

Now, a football pitch is around 100m in length, meaning Morgan's alleged time matched fell 0.01 seconds short of the 100m world-record set by his fellow countryman, Usain Bolt.

There might be a slight hint of editing in the video...

Well played, Leicester.

Morgan has been in and out of Leicester's team in the past few years after captaining the side to that famous Premier League title triumph in 2015/16.

The 35-year-old has played just 12 minutes of Premier League action in 2019/20, with Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu holding down the fort at centre-back.
