Marco van Basten Removed From FIFA 20

2019-12-06 09:14:13

EA Sports has taken the extraordinary step of informing players, with an in-game message, that it has removed Dutch football great Marco van Basten from its FIFA Ultimate Team mode in FIFA 20.

Van Basten works as a commentator for Fox in the Netherlands, and was in the booth following a game in the Dutch league on Saturday between Ajax and Heracles Almelo. After touchline presenter Hans Kraay had interviewed Heracles manager Frank Wormuth, van Basten can be heard mocking Kraay’s attempts at speaking German (Wormuth is a German currently coaching in Holland) before saying “Seig Heil.”

Fox Sports described his comment as “stupid and inappropriate”, and his fee for the show was donated to a Dutch institute that promotes knowledge of World War II.

Van Basten, 55, is an analyst for Fox Sports in Europe, played forward for the country’s famed AFC Ajax club, won the Ballon d’Or three times as Europe’s top football player, and helmed the Dutch national team when it made the elimination stage of the 1990 World Cup.

He has since apologized, saying that he didn’t want to make an offensive remark, just “ridicule” his co-presenter’s foreign language skills (it’s important to note that the Dutch and Germans have one hell of a rivalry when it comes to football). That hasn’t stopped EA Sports from suspending van Basten from FIFA 20, where he was available as one of the game’s legendary players.

The 55-year-old’s three Icon cards are still available to buy and trade on the FIFA 20 transfer market, but we’ve made the call not to share prices in order to avoid players profiting from his comment and subsequent removal.
