In the latest version of the popular PlayStation and Xbox game, FIFA 16, the virtual version of Irish footballer Damien Delaney appears to have trouble settling into life in London.
Despite playing for London club Crystal Palace for the past four years, Twitter user Sean McKay captured a screenshot from the game that shows the virtual player asking to leave Britain.
In a message that appears designed for the video game’s non-English speaking players, the Cork defender’s character complains that he’s struggling to master the English language.
Humorously, in the player conversations section of the game, Delaney also seems to complain about British food and culture.
“It’s nothing personal boss, I just don’t like the country, I’m struggling with the language and I hate the food and the culture. I’ll never be able to settle here and even though everybody at the club has been kind to me, I think it’s best if I get away as soon as possible,” the videogame message reads.
There are some exciting LFC transfer rumors to wake up to this morning and that can only mean good things for FIFA 16 players who play with Liverpool primarily for their main squad in Ultimate Team.
The big news is that Liverpool FC have bid £26.5 million for Brazilian attacker Alex Teixeira. He currently plays for Russian club Shakhtar Donetsk and has been having an amazing season so far scoring lots of goals.
He holds an 82 rating on FIFA 16 Ultimate Team at the moment and is easily one of the best attacking players to buy for cheap starter squads – around 1,000 coins if you are lucky.
Presuming that the Teixeira to LFC deal is completed, we wanted to offer FIFA 16 fans a treat by taking a look at the mouth watering prospect that lies ahead if manager Jurgen Klopp has his way with other LFC transfer targets.
The Brazilian connection with Teixeira, Firmino and Coutinho would be a dream come true, while the likes of Morata, Matip and Ter Stegen who have also been linked would be great additions too.
