Tekkz's Singapore win invites comparisons to Messi - Esportsranks
Tekkz’s Singapore win invites comparisons to Messi

It was business as usual for Tekkz in Singapore. He lifted the FUT Champions Cup in Singapore after defeating Fatih “FIFAUstun” Ustun 6-2 in the cross-console final. This adds yet another title to a record-breaking season; this is his 5th major this year, his 3rd FUT Champions Cup and he has won the last two back-to-back, something which no player had ever done before.

It’s an unprecedented run in FIFA and one that has invited comparisons to some of sports greats like Messi and Lebron – individuals so far and away above their competition that they make the impossible seem mundane.

Take this stat for instance. Tekkz added 1,500 Global Series Points giving him a total of 7545 which is around 4,500 higher than 2nd place Mossad “Msdossary” Aldossary, who let’s not forget is the current FIFA eWorld Cup Champion.

And he has not finished yet, he has qualified for every possible event this season and will also have the honour of representing his hometown club, Liverpool FC, in the inaugural season of the ePremier League giving him plenty chances to add to the $180,000+ he has already won this season.

Tekkz had started the weekend slowly but gradually began dominating without ever really getting out of 2nd gear, in fact he had more trouble answering questions in the post-match interviews than he ever had on the pitch – when asked what his favourite Asian food was he answered that he didn’t know any Asian foods before adding, “eh… burgers?”


Traditional footballers aren’t known for their inspired answers and Tekkz seems to be channelling a fellow English sportsman – Wayne Rooney.

Asked another time what music he enjoys he replied he “didn’t listen to music.”

He is a man who clearly does his talking on the pitch. In the final he raced into a 3-0 lead before Ustun worked his way back into the game, finishing the first leg 3-2 after a last minute goal. A mistake by Ustun in the second leg gifted Tekkz the lead on 20 minutes and from there he never looked back, he won the tie 6-2 and wrote himself into the history books while doing it.

This is Tekkz world and we are all just living in it.
