STILL ON TOP - Pedri is still the wonderkid king in FM22

Arsenal and England full back Bukayo Saka slips into the second spot on the list of hottest wonderkids in FM22, with Mason Greenwood removed from the game.

Crystal Palace's Michael Olise has also seen his PA rating increase to 163, making the French youngster one of the most exciting prospects in the Premier League.

Whilst some new faces have entered the game, there's yet to be a credible challenger to Pedri's wonderkid throne.

Greenwood Removed

Mason Greenwood will no longer feature in any of Football Manager 2022's game modes, this includes PC, Xbox, and Mobile versions of the game.

The Man United striker was arrested on suspicion of rape and assault on the afternoon of Sunday, 30 January, after a woman alleging incidents of violence posted pictures and videos on social media. These posts have since been deleted.

Manchester United confirmed that the 20-year-old will not be training or playing for the club until further notice.

At the time of his removal from Football Manager 2022, Greenwood was one of the highest-rated youngsters in the game.
