People have only just discovered Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney's hidden 'tiny' Liverpool insult in FIFA 23'

Fans are only just noticing a hidden joke from Wrexham's Hollywood owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney in FIFA 23.

Reynolds and McElhenney took the football world by storm by taking over National League side Wrexham Football club in 2021.

The pair are famous for their exploits as actors, but the pair undertook this massive responsibility head on in an attempt to turn around the fortunes of the struggling famous club.

Not strangers to business partnerships, the pair came together to record voiceovers for the latest edition of FIFA - something which fans are only just noticing. Check it out below.

If you play as Wrexham against Liverpool on the game, there's a very funny voiceover from the pair, just as the teams are shaking hands prior to the game starting.

The in-game commentator starts by saying: "This is a huge game for Wrexham and I believe we have a message from the owners, Ryan and Rob."

Rob's voice then appears, as he says: "Well, this is a special game - this is a big club versus a very small club."

"A giant club versus a minuscule, improvisational version of a football club."

Rob then says: "And of course we're talking about Liverpool."

To which Ryan adds: "Tiny, tiny club Liverpool. Tight nit community there in Liverpool, really keeping this community-owned club together."

Rob finishes by saying: "Very close to the massive Wrexham AFC."

What's even better is the fact that there are apparently more examples of this in the game, with he pair recording several little voiceovers for different teams.

According to the comments of the tweet, there is a very humorous one if Wrexham face Stockport in the game - perhaps it's time to load up FIFA to check it out.

The pair documented their journey as co-owners of the Welsh club in the hugely popular series 'Welcome to Wrexham' which aired on Disney Plus.

It was nominated for two awards and it delves deep into the local community as well as the club and team which makes for a brilliant watch.

In terms of the team, they currently sit second in the National League, five points off the leaders Notts County, with two games in hand.

Last season, which was the first under the new owners, saw the side come bitterly close to finally achieving promotion out of the fifth tier of English football - a league they've remained in since 2008.

This season will see them hunt down that one automatic promotion spot to finally break back into the football league.

But a showdown with Liverpool at Anfield in the future still feels like a very long away - best to stick to FIFA for now.
