    EA Sports has taken the extraordinary step of informing players, with an in-game message, that it has removed Dutch football great Marco van Basten from its FIFA Ultimate Team mode in FIFA 20.

    The ban comes following an appearance on the Netherlands’ top sports broadcast network, in which van Basten, off camera, says “Sieg Heil” as a German football manager leaves an interview. Van Basten says he was mocking the German accent of the pitch reporter in the clip. Fox Sports suspended van Basten for one week.
