Van Basten removed from FIFA 20 game after making Nazi comment

"We are aware of the recent comments made by Marco van Basten", reads an official EA statement which now appears when you open Ultimate Team. Van Basten, who was Ballon d'Or victor three times during a glittering career, was then suspended until 7th December, with his wages for that week donated to the Netherlands Institute for War Documentation. He's in a spot of bother following his comments on a Dutch Fox Sports TV segment where he said, "Sieg Heil" after the camera had cut away from him.

Although Van Basten is long retired, some legendary players are still available to play with on the game, including the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Didier Drogba and Ronald Koeman. In the game he is a coveted Icon card for use in Ultimate Team.

"We are aware of the recent comments made by Marco Van Basten".

If you have Marco van Basten - who has 89, 91 and 93 rated cards in Federation Internationale de Football Association 20 Ultimate Team, you can continue to use him.

Players who log in will receive a message from EA, shared by Twinfinite, explaining that van Basten is also no longer available in FIFA Ultimate Team packs, FUT drafts or squad building challenges.

'We have an expectation that our commitment to equality and diversity is upheld across our game. FOX Sports, whose show the comments were made on, stated that while Van Basten had no idea that his microphone was on, the supposed joke had no place in the studio no matter what.

"Not too pretty, sieg heil, pfannkuchen (pancake)".

Fox Sports said in a statement last week that it distanced itself from the comment, which the broadcaster called 'stupid and inappropriate'. "I only wanted to explain' Hans' German".
