Allan Saint-Maximin Asks For EA Sports To Put His Gucci Headband In FIFA 19

Nice winger Allan Saint-Maximin has been given a spicy 86-rated 'Future Star' card on FIFA 19 but he's made another separate request to EA Sports: include his Gucci headband in the game.

The 21-year old donned the expensive headpiece, which is priced at £180 on the official Gucci store, in the 1-0 win over Bordeaux on 12 January.

Saint-Maximin scored the winner from the spot 16 minutes in, though what was around his dreadlocks was the real story.

Because of his association with Puma, the Frenchman had to have the Gucci logo covered up on the front but Saint-Maximin loves his flex so much that he's asked EA to modify his appearance on this year's game.

Headbands are included in the game for gamers who unlock it for their 'Pro' but seeing Saint-Maximin tearing it up and dripping in sauce at the same time on FIFA would be something else.

He's not the only one demanding it as well, with one fan setting up a petition - signed by eleven people thus far - to try and get EA's attention.

The description of the Change.Org petition reads: "As of late, French winger Allan-saint Maximin has worn a Gucci headband during his games for OGC Nice. However, this headband is not incorporated into Maximins in game Fifa 19 model. Let's do this boys."

EA have answered loads of requests from player's before when it comes to their appearance so here's hoping Saint-Maximin gets what he wants...
