EA Sports have pulled Marco van Basten from all their FIFA 20 platforms after the Dutch legend was caught saying 'Sieg Heil' on live television. 

Van Basten, 55, was working as an analyst for Fox Sports two weekends ago when he was caught on mic saying the German phrase for 'hail victory' that became notorious for its use at Nazi rallies.

He was suspended for a week by the television network after the comment, and EA Sports have now moved to pull him from the game.
