MLS star Florian Jungwirth brutally told a group of kids he doesn't play FIFA because he "has a life".
The German defender, who plays for Canadian club Vancouver Whitecaps, was high-fiving the children on his way to the pitch before their recent match against Colorado Rapids when one of them asked: "What's your favourite FIFA?" A second then echoed: "Favourite FIFA game?"
Rather than amuse them, a straight-faced Jungwirth replied: "I don't play FIFA, I have a life." Although they didn't get the answer they were looking for, his response prompted the kids to burst out into laughter.

At 33 years of age, Jungwirth was probably told old for the FIFA hype train, with the EA Sports franchise not truly taking off in popularity until the 2010s. However, he may be just angry at his FIFA 23 Ultimate Team card, as it isn't a pretty sight.
Jungwirth is just about a silver instead of a bronze with a rating of 66, and his pace stat is a horrendous 33 – rivalling former Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker as one of the slowest players in the game's history.
Was Jungwirth wrong to respond to the kids how he did? Let us know in the comments section.
While he may not be excited for the release of the next installment, which is set for next Friday (September 30), many footie fans are. And they can already get their first taste through the FIFA 23 Ultimate Team web app, which launched earlier this week.
When the full game is playable, those who buy it will be able to use Ted Lasso's AFC Richmond. The fictional English football team, as well as their American manager, have been included following the success of the award-winning Apple TV series.
Users will be able to take control of the club across multiple game modes, including Career Mode, Kick-Off, Online Friendlies and Online Seasons. And Lasso can be used to take charge of any team in Career Mode.
