England and Manchester City defender Kyle Walker is no longer named the quickest player at his club, as per the latest EA Sports FC video game. Walker has been well known for his speed for the last few years, but it seems now he is surpassed by his club’s new signing, Belgium star Jeremy Doku.
In the latest edition of the video game previously known as FIFA, which will be released later this month, the defender has lost his place as the quickest player within his own club. Doku has snatched that title from him. Doku joined the club from French side Rennes in a reported $68.7 million deal. So far, he has scored a goal and made two appearances for his new side.
Following his move to the Premier League, EA Sports gave the player a pace rating of 91. And by doing so, they pipped Walker. The defender still has an impressive rating of 90. The right-back, however, has reportedly reacted well to this new change. Walker believes that the Belgium international is only ahead of him by over five meters and that he is still quicker.

In a recent interview, Walker said, “So I’ve seen my card. I think the ratings have come down, actually. I’m not the quickest at City anymore. Jeremy is a 91. He is quicker than me… over five meters, we’ll say. Usain Bolt runs in a 100m race, he doesn’t run in a five-meter race. I still say that I am quicker”.
The England international won the treble with Pep Guardiola‘s City last season. The player has had quite a successful and trophy-filled career ever since he moved to the Etihad Stadium after Tottenham Hotspur back in 2017. Walker has made 260 appearances for City, scoring six goals for the club in total this season so far.

According to reports, Lauryn is thrilled about her new house. The 4,000-square-foot detached four-floor home in East Sussex has five bedrooms and also has sea views. Although no parties have yet disclosed much about the house.
Reports suggest that Lauryn gave birth to a little girl last month but has refused to name the father. Although many believe the soccer star to be the father. However, she already has a three-year-old son, Kairo, with the English defender.
