The next time you update your FIFA 19 and get the list of fixes and improvements, perhaps one will read, “Kevin Ellison wouldn’t stop dogging us about his pace so we made him faster.”
Morecambe midfielder Ellison, 39, has been with the Shrimps since 2011, racking up most of his 338 appearances at left wing and center forward.

Now, we supposed you don’t have to be speedy to play CF, but left wing? Well, FIFA went and graced him with 35 (out of 99) in pace. He’s not pleased.
Ellison has taken to Twitter to call out FIFA, and then took the opportunity to state his case via video.
He had the stats to prove that he’s one of the quicker guys on his team, even at 39 years old.
Another remarkable thing about Ellison is that in his career he’s made exactly one Premier League appearance, lasting six minutes for Leicester City against Manchester United in 2001.
He subbed into the game for Dean Sturridge, uncle of Liverpool’s Daniel, and played against United luminaries Scholes, Neville, Stam, Sheringham, and Keane.
This is Morecambe’s 12th-straight season in League Two. At 20th on the table, the Shrimps are six points clear of the drop zone.
