Adebayo Akinfenwa Is No Longer The Strongest Player In FIFA 19 Ultimate Team

Adebayo Akinfenwa Is No Longer The Strongest Player In FIFA 19 Ultimate Team

Adebayo Akinfenwa has been able to keep his reputation going for some time now as an absolute beast of a tank.

Whether it was YouTuber KSI making a video on him back in the day or someone seeing him play football, there's no denying that the 36-year-old striker is one footballer that would have no problem bullying a player off the ball.

However, Akinfenwa is no longer the strongest non-in-form player in FIFA 19's Ultimate Team.

That's right, the Wycombe Wanderers star no longer holds that accolade to his name.

Sure, he still has an impressive 97 strength, but that's no longer enough to become the strongest player in Ultimate Team.

That honour now belongs to Sébastien Haller, who has an incredible 98 strength.

The 24-year-old Eintracht Frankfurt striker initially had a 78-rated Ultimate Team card, but EA Sports has bumped him up to an 81 rating as part of the winter upgrades.

Haller overtaking Akinfenwa in strength has not gone unnoticed with FIFA fans.

"Stronger than Akinfenwa? No f**king way, dude," one user wrote on Futhead.

A second said: "So, he is now the strongest NIF player in FIFA?! Akinfenwa shouldn't see this..."

A third added: "EA can't do this. This is disrespect against Akinfenwa."

Despite the fact that many, many fans aren't happy with FIFA 19 compared with previous instalments in the series, EA Sports has been making some big changes to the title.

Meanwhile, Jadon Sancho is no longer the only English five-star skiller in FIFA 19, with another player joining him in that coveted bracket after EA Sports released a new update.

FIFA 19 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

What feature should EA Sports include in the next FIFA title?

Let us know in the comments.
