Pierre Ménès, commentator in FIFA games since FIFA 17, has just been officially withdrawn from the project, EA having decided to cease all relations with the sports journalist.
In recent days, rumors have been circulating about the possibility that Pierre Ménès is excluded from FIFA games. Indeed, the famous figure of the sports world is in turmoil after the broadcast of a documentary on sexism in the field of sports journalism. Following accusations of sexist abuse and multiple sexual assault, EA had decided to examine its relationship with Pierre Ménès regarding his collaboration in FIFA games. The decision has been made: EA spoke on Twitter, announcing that Pierre Ménès will no longer be integrated into the next FIFA games from the 2022 edition.

EA states that “it is very important to us that the behavior of our athletes and our partners is in line with the values of EA SPORTS FIFA. Following the actions of Pierre Ménès, we immediately put an end to our relationship with him. EA will therefore not integrate Pierre Ménès’ comments in FIFA 22 or in later versions of the game. ».
In addition, EA informs its players who no longer wish to hear the comments of Pierre Ménès in the games FIFA 17 to FIFA 21 can still choose to put the comments in a language other than French. It only remains to know who will replace the sports journalist to record the comments of the next titles of the franchise alongside Hervé Mathoux. On Twitter, everyone has their own idea, offering sports journalists like Smaïl Bouabdellah, Omar da Fonseca or even some YouTubers who are fans of the game of football.
