Antonio Valencia is the fastest player in the world. Apparently.

by Kevin Coleman

FIFA have released this infographic, purporting that Antonio Valencia is the fastest player in the world.

Sure, the Ecuadorian is fast. But the fastest in the world? We’re sure there’s a sprinter cum footballer in Jamaica or somewhere who’s fairly annoyed tonight.

    This is absolute rubbish Fifa or Blatter rather should stop been voodoo about his so called decisions about players or favoritism as he said. the truth has to be told despite a manchester united man is his choice, where does CR7 fits and G. Bale. so therefore I give my thumb up for CRISTIANO RONALDO first and BALE before VALENCIA manchester united
