Adam Johnson’s under age sexual relationship has resulted in a short lived football career that has shattered into a million pieces.
The disgraced ex-Sunderland footballer faces jail time after being found guilty of grooming and sexual activity with a 15 year old girl.
It has left many outraged many fans and child abuse support systems in disbelief, after hearing the news EA could not remove him from FIFA 16.
An EA Spokesperson commented on the issue saying they have struggled to delete him from the game.
“We released a team update last month to remove Adam Johnson however due to technical issues it is not possible to delete him from everyone’s version.”
Unbelievably, Johnson’s card still exists in the popular online game mode FIFA Ultimate Team.
To add even more fuel to the fire, his value has sky-rocketed from 500-600 coins to almost 8,000.
With only 2 pages of Johnson cards left, he is hot property for Ultimate Team Players to invest in, even though we wouldn’t pick him for our starting XI.
