Top 10 Fastest Goalkeepers in the world 2022

Speed is that one special player attribute which is loved by almost all football fans. Depending upon the player’s position and his role there are certain requirements for speed. An attacker or winger would require the maximum speed possible while a defender or a goalkeeper can manage with a normal level of speed. However, we all love defenders and goalkeepers who are quick while sprinting.

The role of a goalkeeper has changed drastically in the last few decades. Now a goalkeeper is not just expected to stop conceding goals instead they have to help in playmaking whenever they get a chance. In order to fulfil the role of an ideal modern goalkeeper, it is very important for the keeper to have a good pace. Below is a list of all the fast goalkeeper FIFA ratings in 2022. You can get these players in your FIFA team and get ahead of your opponents.

Who is the fastest goalkeeper?

10: Bernd Leno – Fulham

Leno is a goalkeeper who had the potential to be among the best during his time at Leverkusen in Bundesliga. However, after moving to Arsenal things did not work out exactly as we expected but he still has managed to keep a reputation for himself. The German player has a total speed of 56 in FIFA which makes him faster than many other goalkeepers playing in the Premier League

The player has now joined Fulham on a three-year contract. Leno is just 30 years of age and there is still a lot left in him.

9: Mattia Perin – Juventus

Perin joined Juventus back in 2018 and since then he is seen as a second-choice keeper in the team. Earlier Juventus had the legend, Gianluigi Buffon, as their prime goalkeeper and now Wojciech Szczęsny rules as the first choice. It does not keep Perin from making a name for himself. Perin has more speed than the two other keepers. Only if he had better goalkeeping skills he would’ve been the first-choice keeper for Juventus. The player has a total pace of 56 and a rating of around 82. Buying him would be very good for someone who does not have a lot of money yet he wants a decent goalkeeper for his FIFA team.

8: De Gea – Manchester United

One of the only players who survived in Manchester United since the time of Sir Alex has always been among the best. De Gea is a highly skilled and talented goalkeeper. He is an asset to both his country and his club. The Spanish goalkeeper has been around in the news for a long time yet he has constantly managed to be helpful to his team. De Gea has a speed of 58 in FIFA making him among the top keepers with good speed. The body structure of this player also makes it easy for him to move faster compared to other keepers who are slightly more bulky than him.

7: Manuel Neuer – FC Bayern Munich

Neuer is the best goalkeeper of this era. One cannot imagine a more complete goalkeeper than Manuel Neuer. In his career, he has achieved things that other goalkeepers can only imagine. Neuer is also called the ‘Sweeper Keeper‘ as he is the actual fifth defender on the pitch. You will always see Neuer whenever there is a chance to sprint in and stop the attack, the best part is there is no other goalkeeper in the world who can do it as well as him. A few years ago Neuer would’ve been in the top 3 of this list but now his pace has reduced to 60 in 2022. Anyhow Neuer will go down as a legend for Bayern Munich.

Manuel Neuer is the ‘GOAT‘ keeper of football.

The captain of the Turkish giants has seen a lot of moments in his long career where he benefitted from his good speed. The player is the same age as Neuer but he has managed to be a little faster than him. In his career, he has lifted a lot of titles including Copa America with Uruguay. It would be right to say that Muslera is a gem for his team. In 2022 he has a sprint speed of 62 and a rating of 82 on FIFA.

4: André Onana – Inter Milan

The legendary Cameroon goalkeeper has blessed the fans of his nation and throughout the world with some outstanding performances in recent years. The player recently moved to Inter Milan and is expected to make a name for himself with the Scudetto-winning team. In recent years there has been a slight decline in his form but he is just 26 years of age and still has a lot of time to get back to his old form.

Onana has a pace of 62 which makes him a fast goalkeeper compared to others in Serie A. The best part is that he would easily fit in the pace of Inter Milan’s game.

3: Ederson – Manchester City

Ederson is among the top keepers in the world right now. He is the favourite of Pep Guardiola and fits perfectly in his equation. The Brazil national team goalkeeper has a few special traits that make him different from others in this list. Ederson has aggression and hunger for more which is the most important for any player irrespective of his position. The player has a total speed of 63 in 2022. Ederson will continue to be in the top 3 as there is not much competition for him in this race.

2: Hugo Lloris – Tottenham Hotspurs

Hugo Lloris is a legend for Spurs and France. The player has been among the top goalkeepers for over a decade now and is still very great at his job. Lloris has been the first-choice goalkeeper for Tottenham for more than a decade now and in all this time he has helped his team in crucial situations. Unfortunately, he did not win many titles with Tottenham but he surely has won two big titles with his country which are the World Cup and the Nations League. 

The sad part is that age is also taking over him as we can see a slight decline in his form. The player has a pace of 62 with 65 acceleration making him faster than Ederson on the pitch.
