Gareth Bale, that’s who!

He may have looked a bit ropey against Juventus in the Champions League semi final this week, but we can confirm Gareth Bale is the fastest player in the world!

A recent report backed by FIFA ranked footy speedsters by how quick they ran with the ball at their feet during a game. Bale clocked in with an amazing top speed of 22.9mph – that’s faster than cars are allowed to travel past your school!

Even Usain Bolt is reportedly impressed! Second on the list was Mexican Jurgen Damm. Damm plays for Pachuca in Mexico but both Man United and Chelsea are in the race to sign this 22 year old Speedy Gonzales, so remember the name – he’s damm fast!

The top ten footy speed demons are listed below!

1 Gareth Bale - 22.9mph

2 Jurgen Damm - 21.9mph

3 Antonio Valencia - 21.8 mph

4 Aaron Lennon - 21.0mph

5 Cristiano Ronaldo - 20.9mph

6 Theo Walcott - 20.3mph

7 Lionel Messi - 20.2mph

8 Wayne Rooney - 19.4mph

9 Frank Ribery - 19.1mph

10 Sergio Ramos - 19.0mph

POGBA! He's back, being Paul Pogba again – we missed him!

MORATA! Running out of time to prove he can lead the line at Chelsea!
