There is no room for Sadio Mane or Alexis Sanchez in the top 10 fastest players
The Manchester United hero was clocked at a top speed of 31.2 km/h during the past year by C.F Pachuca's study, earning him a place among the top 10 quickest players in the world.
However, the results seem a little odd with no spot on the list for Premier League speedsters such as Hector Bellerin, Alexis Sanchez, Sadio Mane, Raheem Sterling or Shane Long.
Borussia Dortmund flier Marco Reus also fails to make the cut while Atletico Bilbao's Inaki Williams, reportedly La Liga's fastest player, is nowhere to be seen.
