Everyone loves to play some video games from time to time, but nobody expects to be able to make a living doing so. For the most part, playing Xbox or Playstation is a great way to relieve stress, kill some time, and have some fun. However, Wolfsburg proved that is not always the case.
On Thursday, the club confirmed that they have signed David Bytheway to an official contract-even though the transfer window is already over. Bytheway won’t be playing any part on the pitch for the club or even on the bench as a coach, but instead he has been designated as the team’s official FIFA 16 representative.
Bytheway has become renowned across the globe for his FIFA skills, having represented England at the FIFA Interactive World Cup. He will now be dawning the green and white of Wolfsburg every time he plays in a tournament, or creates a video.
The 22-year-old has big dreams for the world of professional video gaming, as he hopes that more teams in leagues across Europe also take up the idea of signing a full-time FIFA player.
While it may be a while before we see the likes of Manchester United or Chelsea signing a video game stud to their squad, Wolfsburg proved on Thursday that the idea may not be as far fetched as one might think.
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.
EA Sports have announced the latest edition FIFA 16 Ultimate Team Team of the Week and the headline news is that Neymar, Harry Kane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are all in the side.
All three players scored a hat-trick for their clubs over the weekend with Aubameyang’s his second in the week after he scored one in the Europa League as well.
The Gabon striker has been in sensational form this season and his 13 goals in the league is the highest number of any player in Europe’s top five leagues, level with Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.
Whilst Aubameyang’s form has been brilliant all season Spurs forward Kane has really struggled so far, scoring just one league goal before the weekend.
He was aided by some terrible Bournemouth defending but it will have been a great relief for everyone to see Kane score a hat-trick, the key now is for him to kick on and produce this form regularly.
With Lionel Messi currently out missing throughinjury Barcelonahave had to rely on their other stars and this weekend Luis Suarez stepped up to the plate with the Uruguayan scoring three over the weekend against Eibar.
At the back Laying Kurzawa is in the team after he scored in PSG’s comfortable 4-1 victory over Saint-Etienne whilst Nicolas Otamendi is in after his performance in the Manchester derby.
