And he wants the world to know it
Landon Donovan has been using his Twitter account to brag about his FIFA 11 achievements. The LA Galaxy man beat ex-Hull City striker Jozy Altidore and couldn’t resist a bit of social networking bragging. He also used the opportunity to throw down the gauntlet to fellow international Maurice Edu.
He tweeted: “Just beat @JozyAltidore17 in FIFA ’11…..you want some too @MauriceEdu?”
As you can see above, Edu was happy to accept the challenge.
Donovan has also revealed he would need more money to sign for Barcelona – but again it was in the land of video games.
One of Donovan’s followers moaned: “Playing FIFA manager of FC Barcelona and @landondonovan didn’t accept my contract…what does it take??!”
To which he replied: “More ca$$$$$h!”
UPDATE: Altidore has struck back refuting the allegations. He tweeted: “People @landondonovan has not beaten me yet nor will he ever. I am and will remain World Champion of fifa on all platforms.”
Is Landon Donovan a FIFA fraud?
