In the virtual world, the speed of the footballer is known to be based on his speed figures in FIFA or PES games. But in the real world, research needs to determine the speed of a player. What is currently known is the result of a study of the Mexican club, CF Pachuca.
The research brought that Real Madrid's striker Gareth Bale as the fastest player with a speed of 36.9 kilometers per hour. That figure comes from his action against Inter Milan at the San Siro in the Champions League in 2010, or when passing Marc Bartra against Barcelona in the 2014 Copa Del Rey final.
Manchester United's winger, Antonio Valencia (35.1 kilometers per hour) and Borussia Dortmund's striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (34.6 kilometers per hour) are another big names in the top five of the study's results.
While the recently released news was the success of Manchester City's winger, Leroy Sane became the Premier League's fastest player. He has a speed of 35.48 kilometers per hour, as displayed during a 1-0 win over Chelsea some time ago. Ex-Schalke players beat the previous record of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy in 2015 which recorded speed 35.44 kilometers per hour.
It needs a similar research to call Terens the fastest footballer on earth. However, undoubtedly at his young age, he had found the main place in Pesut Etam. Appearing 28 times out of 30 Borneo matches this season, Terens started all over the starting minutes. His contribution was drawn through six goals and nine assists so far. (RIB/KOK)
