Sami Khedira Thanks EA Sports for Finally Fixing His Hair in FIFA 18

Sami Khedira Thanks EA Sports for Finally Fixing His Hair in FIFA 18

The Juventus midfielder had been badly misrepresented when the latest edition of the game had come out earlier this season.



Sami Khedira's light-hearted dig at the creators of FIFA 18 has clearly paid off, with EA Sports updating the Juventus player's hairstyle in the popular video game.

Earlier this year, the Germany international published a Tweet begging the question as to why the game's developers hadn't given him short hair... as he cut his famous long locks nearly two years ago.

In a Twitter post, Khedira said that he was 'really glad' EA Sports liked his long hair, but pointed out that he's sported the short look for over two years now.

The full post read: 'Hey @EASPORTSFIFA , I'm really glad you like my long hair... but I'm wearing it short for almost two years now... '

And with FIFA 18 being described as "one of the most-realistic football games ever", the title was more than happy to hear the 30-year-old out.

Khedira was so happy with his in-game update that he's promised EA that he won't be the latest player to follow the trend of dying his hair blonde:

Khedira has scored three goals in 10 Serie A appearance for Juve this season, with the Bianconeri currently sitting in second place in the table, one point behind leaders Napoli.

Meanwhile in the Champions League, Juve were drawn against Premier League side Tottenham in the last-16.

The former Real Madrid midfielder wasn't the only player unimpressed with his looks at the beginning of the season. Angel Gomes, who is the cousin of former United winger Nani, aimed a tweet at EA after the images emerged online.

"Why do I look like Wilfried Bony?" Gomes asked, followed by a barrage of 'haha's:

Twitter joker Benjamin Mendy wasn't happy with his rating, either, but days after finding out about his FIFA card, he had some hilarious criticism of his looks on the game.

Do you think he looks more like legendary Premier League striker Emile Heskey?

At least Khedira is happy now!
