It seems AC Milan have let the cat of the bag a little too early!.
They recently posted a tweet (seen by FUTHead) which has been since removed which stated that striker El Shaarawy would be featuring on the FIFA 14 cover.
EA Sports soon after posted a ‘guess the cover star’ tweet seemingly hoping everyone would of missed AC Milan’s naughty tweet!.
Will you welcome El Shaarawy to the cover of FIFA 14? Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.
