Saint-Maximin asks FIFA 22 why his manager Bruce is QUICKER than him

Newcastle star Allan Saint-Maximin asks FIFA 22 why Steve Bruce is QUICKER than him after a video of the 60-year-old boss outsprinting his own players in the game went viral

  • A Twitter user posted a clip of Steve Bruce leaving Newcastle players in his wake
  • The clip has since gone viral – and winger Allan Saint-Maximin has responded
  • The 24-year-old wants to know why he has 91 pace – while Bruce, 60, has 99
  • Fans have called for a race between the men to decide who is the sprint king

Football fans needed little encouragement to go out and buy FIFA 22, but a widely shared clip from the game of Steve Bruce doing a decent impression of Usain Bolt has certainly caught lots of people’s attention – and now Allan Saint-Maximin has had his say on the video.

After Miguel Almiron scored the winning spot-kick in a penalty shootout, the Paraguayan performed a knee slide as his team-mates rushed over to mob him, with Newcastle boss Bruce steaming past the players left on the bench to join in the celebrations.

In reply to the video shared by Newcastle fan Connor, EA SPORTS FIFA wrote: ’99 Pace confirmed’. 

A video has gone viral of Steve Bruce showing incredible pace in the new FIFA 22 video game

The 60-year-old’s avatar in the game was seen bursting past his younger Newcastle players

Bruce – who racked up more than 900 appearances in his playing days – was renowned as a no-nonsense centre back who netted more than 100 goals.

However, despite all his attributes during a career that saw him win three Premier Leagues with Manchester United, pace was not one of them.

Saint-Maximin, who has been the Magpies’ star man this season, is known for his searing speed and took aim at the game, joking: ‘Can you explain to me @EASPORTSFIFA why did you give me 91 pace and 99 pace to Steve Bruce?’ 

The speedy Allan Saint-Maximin has asked FIFA why he only got 91 pace and Bruce got 99

A race between the winger and his boss at St. James’ Park will have to wait a few weeks though

Saint-Maximin’s post received even more retweets and likes than the video of Bruce’s exploits has, with fans reacting in their thousands.

Among them, Kendall Rowan tweeted: ‘Allan… only a race will settle this’, with Cabbage Patch Bruce replying: ‘Half time entertainment at its finest’. 

The next match at St. James’ Park isn’t until October 17 against Tottenham, but if Saint-Maximin and Bruce can’t wait until then to decide who’s the sprint king, a trip to the renowned athletics track at Gateshead could be arranged over the international break.
