Borussia Dortmund’s Manuel Akanji has his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team revealed

Borussia Dortmund defender Manuel Akanji has had his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team starting lineup revealed – and it contains a few interesting position swaps for players.

Ever since joining Borussia Dortmund from FC Basel back in 2018, Manuel Akaji has become a player that FIFA Ultimate Team fans are familiar with. The Swiss central defender offers a pacey option in the heart of any defence, as well as being able to play a pass pretty calmly anywhere on the pitch.

As real-life football has taken a back seat due to the ongoing global health pandemic, professional players across the globe have been playing more and more FIFA 20 – running into fans who can’t quite believe it. 

Akanji has been a steady choice for FUT players for a few years.

The 24-year-old’s team was posted to the FIFA subreddit by Reddit user _jxggs_ – with that all-important 99-rated custom pro player card showing that its the real deal. 

Aside from a handful of legends like Carlos Alberto Torres, Ruud Gullit, Ronaldo, Johan Cruyff, and  Zinedine Zidane, there is also a spot for current stars Kylian Mbappe and Akanji’s teammate Jadon Sancho. However, Sancho, Zidane, and Ronaldo are all out of position, though, it must work in-game for the defender. 

Manuel Akanji’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team

  • GK: Alisson – 90
  • LB: Andy Robertson – 94
  • RB: Carlos Alberto Torres – 90
  • CB: Manuel Akanji – 99
  • CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 92
  • CM: Ruud Gullit- 90
  • CM: Ronaldo – 94
  • CM: Jadon Sancho – 87
  • CAM: Johan Cruyff – 91
  • ST: Kylian Mbappe – 89
  • ST: Zinedine Zidane – 94

Akanji’s ultimate team from FIFA

Some FIFA fans might look past the positional swaps in Akanji’s lineup and see an incredible defensive backline, but there is no doubt that he could definitely upgrade at a few positions.

For example, there are enough special Mbappe cards in-game that the base card could be upgraded – same as Van Dijk. But, at the end of the day, it’s Akanji’s team, so he makes the final call.
