Ronaldo? Messi? Nope, you’re wrong, they’re not even in the top three. It’s all about one of David Moyes’ midfield men.
According to FIFA calculations, he’s the quickest player on the planet who can reach a speed of just over 35 kph, around 22 mph.
It’s not all bad news for Los Blancos however, as new signing Gareth Bale is hot on the heels of Valencia at the top of the speed table clocking in at 34.7 kph or 21.56 mph.
There is a third place for Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon and for all the abuse Wayne Rooney has to endure about being stocky, the Manchester United man is only fractionally slower than Messi according to the FIFA stats.
There are also appearances for Arsenal, Bayern Munich and another Barcelona player in the top ten.
Take a look.
Are you surprised with any of the names on that list? Is there anyone you expected to be there who isn’t?
