Mo Salah Has A Diver Trait On FIFA 19

Mo Salah Has A Diver Trait On FIFA 19

Mohamed Salah has been accused of simulation by many fans of late after he won soft penalties against Newcastle and Brighton respectively, before producing a pretty shocking dive in the 4-3 win over Crystal Palace today.

And it seems like EA Sports are onboard, having given the Egyptian a 'Diver' trait on FIFA 19. One user posted a screenshot on the FIFA subreddit and a quick browse onFIFA Index shows that Salah has indeed received the new characteristic as part of a new update on the game.

He already had the following traits: Beat Offside Trap, Finesse Shot, Speed Dribbler (CPU AI Only), Chip Shot (CPU AI Only) and Backs Into Player.

But Salah now joins the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Arjen Robben in being an expert in diving on the game and the trolling on EA's part could lead to some fun on FIFA 19 - though it won't be too enjoyable if it comes at your expense.

Liverpool's No.11 scored twice in a entertaining 4-3 win over Crystal Palace at Anfield on Saturday but the main talking point from his game was his hugely exaggerated fall when there was barely, if any contact from Mamadou Sakho inside the box in the first half.

The dive from Salah didn't result in him being given a yellow card and it angered many sets of supporters on social media:

Does Salah deserve the "diver" trait?
