The Worlds Top Ten Fastest Footballer’s

Antonio-Valencia-Manchester-UnitedManchester United’s Antonio Valencia is apparently the fastest footballer in the world.

The Ecuadorian speedster remarkably beat the likes of Lionel Messi, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo to the title, according to a FIFA study which featured in Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo.

We knew Valencia was rapid but not that rapid!

Valencia, 29, clocked an astonishing speed of 35.1 km/h – there’s no wonder he’s thriving at wing-back under Louis van Gaal’s new system at Old Trafford.

Here’s the list in full:

1. Antonio Valencia (Manchester United) – 35.1 km/h

2. Gareth Bale (Real Madrid) – 34.7 km/h

3. Aaron Lennon (Tottenham, on loan at Everton) – 33.8 km/h

4. Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) – 33.6 km/h

5. Theo Walcott (Arsenal) – 32.7 km/h

6. Lionel Messi (Barcelona) – 32.5 km/h

7. Wayne Rooney (Manchester United) – 31.2 km/h

8. Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich) – 30.7 km/h

9. Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich) – 30.4 km/h

10. Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) – 30.1 km/h
