Petr Cech Now Wears A Tie Instead Of Helmet On FIFA 19 Career Mode

Petr Cech went viral just before the official release of FIFA 19 after it emerged he was still wearing his protective headguard during transfer negotiations on Career Mode.

Cech has sported the helmet for many years on the pitch now after that horrible head injury he suffered following the collision with Stephen Hunt in 2006.

He never wears it in his day-to-day life but EA Sports clearly thought that he would still wear it along with his suit during meetings with his agent, leading to the man himself commenting on the hilarity and getting a whole lot of interactions.

The former Chelsea No.1 did say he'd wear a tie with his suit and EA have exactly that change as part of their first patch update on FIFA 19.

It's only been altered on the PC version at the moment before it goes live on other consoles, he now turns up headguardless but with a nice red tie around his shirt, ready to get the best possible deal.

Other minor changes to have been introduced include the Champions League anthem being played out at the correct time, as well as the shooting animation being improved so that you're not constantly side-footing the ball when you want to hit it with your laces.
