For Morecambe winger Kevin Ellison, the rating EA Sports gave him for his pace is not a reflection of his real-life statistics

English winger Kevin Ellison has been playing professionally since 1996.

And with almost 40 years of age, the Morecambe footballer is one of those lucky players from the lower divisions that is present in the FIFA 19 video game.

But his FIFA card has become a meme.

The veteran footballer has been given a 35 pace rating, making him one of the slowest players in the same.

But he has taken his 15-minutes of fame with a laugh.

“So as this has been trending the last 24 hours, my solicitor is onto this matter,” he wrote on Twitter as reported by The Sport Bible.

“#AgeDiscrimination, you will be hearing from my brief very shortly @EASportsFIFA.”
