Jack Butland Has Brilliant Response To Being 'Overpowered' On FIFA 17
Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland has had a very difficult season - with an ankle injury suffered back in March in an international friendly against Germany stunting his progress and meaning he has been unable to make a single appearance this season.
It's been incredibly frustrating for the 23-year old, who was in sensational form last season for Stoke and looked to be seriously challenging Joe Hart for the England goalkeeper's No.1 shirt.
But it's good to see that Butland has still got a sense of humour and he showed that yesterday when he was met with a question from an avid FIFA 17 player.
The former Birmingham shotstopper has an 82 rating on the game and has very good statistics overall - making him a shrewd choice between the sticks for anyone who wishes to make an all Premier League side on Ultimate Team.
As seen on Futhead, here is his card:
One FIFA player told Butland on Twitter that he was getting pissed off with how 'overpowered the goalkeeper' is on FIFA.
And the England international responded brilliantly.
The user '@ItzBelch' did not expect Butland to acknowledge him and even though he gave him a bit of a burn, appreciated the reply.

Several other fans on Twitter let Butland know that they were big fans of him and the bit of banter he produced:
Lee Grant has deputised impressively for Butland this season, who could well miss the whole campaign. Stoke fans will be delighted to see him stepping up his recovery, as he puts himself to the test in altitude training on the bike.
