Fifa 16 glitch makes Irish player put in transfer request because he can't speak English

Even Robbie Savage wouldn't use an excuse this bad.

When the BT Pundit played for Birmingham City, he handed in a transfer request and sought to sign for Blackburn Rovers because it was closer to his family home in Wrexham.

The only problem was that Birmingham is actually two miles closer to Wrexham than Blackburn. However, Savage still got his move, but we're not sure if that's the case for virtual Damien Delaney.

The Crystal Palace defender, on Fifa 16, is unsettled and seeks a move on Sean McKay's career mode - because he can't speak English.

The Irish Post spotted Sean's screenshot, which is pretty embarrassing for a video game that prides itself on being very realistic.

Delaney, who has played in English football for over 15 years, issues his manager an ultimatum on the game, and the Corkman wants out of England because he's struggling to adapt to the culture.

"It's nothing personal boss, I just don’t like the country, I'm struggling with the language and I hate the food and the culture. I'll never be able to settle here and even though everybody at the club has been kind to me, I think it's best if I get away as soon as possible."

This has to be one of the strangest Fifa glitches we've encountered.
