The Championship Star Who Clocked A Faster Speed Than Mbappe

The Championship Star Who Clocked A Faster Speed Than Mbappe

Just six days ago, PSG hot-shot Kylian Mbappe clocked in at a ridiculous 10.55 metres per second en route to scoring the first of three goals against former club Monaco to seal the Ligue One title.

Mbappe received the ball on the halfway line and played a one-two with Moussa Diaby. The rapid striker then demonstrated his insane pace to burn, leaving several opposition players for dad before supplying a cool finish.

The acceleration he was able to generate is utterly frightening but you might be surprised to learn that an English defender who only made his first-team debut in March, has clocked in at a faster top speed.

Tyler Magloire, who has been with Blackburn Rovers since the age of nine, boasts a top speed of 10.6 metres per second (38.16 kmph), according to Sky Sports

The 20-year old has even bettered the average speed of 10.44 m/s that the one and only Usain Bolt managed in his world-record setting 100m race in Germany back in 2009.

Magloire, who was injured for four months at the start season before skippering the club's Under 23 side to safety in Premier League 2, is so fast that he's prompted manager Tony Mowbray to declare that "Nobody beats him in a foot race".

He already held the club-record top speed after beating the score set by Josh King but it seems as though he will be the holder for quite some time, especially given that he's signed a contract until 2022.

Moving up a league, Timothy Fosu-Mensah definitely needs to get onto EA Sports about his pace rating because according to the stats, the versatile Dutchman is the fastest player in the Premier League.

The 21-year old, who is on loan at relegated Fulham from Manchester United, was sixth in the top 20 list back in September but now sits at the top having clocked a rapid top speed of 21.95mph since then.
