Tyrese Campbell fielded questions ranging from the changing room DJ and his pace stat on FIFA to playing under so many managers and what should happen with football post-coronavirus when he took over the Stoke City instagram account.
Campbell was given the club passwords for an hour this afternoon to host a Q&A with supporters.
The changing room DJ, it turns out, is Sam Vokes.
And what should happen with football and the 2019/20 season with the world currently on hold? Campbell thinks the EFL should go down the same route as a large chunk of non-league and call the whole thing off.
He said: “I think they should call it off and start again next season. It’s not right to carry it on now with what’s going on in the world.”
As for his pace stat on Fifa, which is currently 78, that’s at least 12 too low apparently – and trying to work his way into the Stoke first team under five different managers in two years is tough but character building.
Here is Tyrese Campbell’s Instagram takeover.
