Franck Ribéry mocks his own FIFA 20 character: "Who is this guy?"

After twelve seasons in the colours of Bayern Munich, Franck Ribery left this past summer for a new experience in Serie A. And he must have been excited to see himself depicted in the latest edition of the FIFA 20 video game, this time wearing the Fiorentina kit.

However, the French player was surprised with what he saw when he got involved in a family game with the console, and shared his thoughts with his Twitter followers. He also directly questioned the game's manufacturer about the animation of his particular character.

"Played #FIFA20 with my kids not long ago. Hey @EASPORTSFIFA...Who is this guy?" he joked with a number of emoticons.

The 36-year old posted an image along with his message which did indeed show limited likeness to the man himself. Unsurprisingly, his tweet went viral, ane there were several amusing responses, including suggestions it resembled Voldemort from the Harry Potter movies or that the old Pro Evolution Soccer 6 format.

Even the ProEv team got involved, sharing a still of Ribery as he appears in their current version, a much better likeness.
