8. Wayne Rooney – 31.2 km/h
Wayne returned to Everton last summer, after playing for Manchester United for what seemed like a lifetime. He’s still one of the fastest strikers in the Premier League, although he’s had a few bad seasons now.
Let’s hope to return to Everton can help him return to his earlier form.
1. Arjen Robben – 37 km/h
Yes, Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has the fastest measured speed to date. While this might seem fast, remember that Usain Bolt has a top speed recorded at about 44-45 km/h.
Also, like Gareth Bale, Robben is injured more often than he is not, so no use in having the fastest player in the world if he can hardly be on the pitch.
