This is not a glitch it fixes an ea glitch!
This in general is simply deleting your online pro data from fifa 16 and fifa 17 and the game creating a new fifa 17 pro data without the fifa 16 port which bugs peoples pros out. Also this fixes rating, skill points and passive trait bugs that occur by having a pro ported over from fifa 16
Issue Summary: Online Pros ported over from fifa 16 do not get passive traits on there pro like (skilled dribbling, outsidefootshot, goal keepers up for corners, diving header, bicycle kicks and power free kicks) etc
Issue Details: The issue comes from having a pro saved data from fifa 16 on your console. To quick fix this you need to delete your fifa 16 pro data and delete your fifa 17 pro data and then restarting fifa 17 seems to work as you make a new pro without the game face and name etc being ported over so a fresh pro is made on fifa 17. Don't worry you wont lose any skill points or stats I assure you I have done this multiple times this fifa trying to find a fix for the in match face to work in game but discovered this bug instead.
People who don't do this I believe are at a disadvantage to others. To view if you have these passive traits or not you must first be captain and be in a match once there go into the in match menu where you swap players positions and formations press the RS on a pro to see player information then go over to traits, if you don't have a long list of traits you may want to fix this.
These are the (Passive Traits) everyone should have. This is taken with no skill points spent and a fresh pro made on fifa 17 without porting from fifa 16 pro as i deleted all fifa 16 data.
(A) (My pro)
This is a guy who didn't port over their pro from fifa 16 and spent skill points on flair (This is sort of how everyone's should look)
(B) (random guys pro)
These are players who ported over there pros from fifa 16 who spent skill points (how most peoples look/wrong/disadvantage)
(C) (random guys pro)
(D) (random guys pro)
(E) (random guys pro)

This fix also seems to increase rating and it fixes pros who have bugged out skill points that are missing lots as this fix helped this guy out https://fifaforums.easports.com/en/discussion/184074/ps4-huge-game-breaking-bug-in-pro-club-mode-skill-points-abilities-need-devs-tech-gm#latest.
Even if you think you have don't have bugged skill points this fix will potentially still add skill points missing to those who don't think they have missing skill points as pretty much everybodys pro is bugged if you have a fifa 16 port. I have had numerous people who has done this fix reporting that they get a higher rating and a few more skill points. The tendency of people getting more skill points when they don't think they have missing skill points seems to be with higher rated pros (90+) but i have had some lower pros saying they got some aswell.
Steps for fix
If everything fifa 16 related is deleted off your console which you can do on the dashboard all you would need to do is go to fifa 17 and delete online pro 1 which you can by going to the main menu of fifa 17 then press (RB) and go all the way right to (customize) then select (profile) then press (delete) then your saved data will come up delete (online pro 1) restart the game then you are done. (Nobody has to reinstall fifa 16)
Step 1 uninstall fifa 16 or load fifa 16 if you still play it, go to the main menu then press (RB) and go all the way right to (customize) then select (profile) then press (delete) then your saved data will come up delete (online pro 1)
Step 2 load fifa 17 go to the main menu then press (RB) and go all the way right to (customize) then select (profile) then press (delete) then your saved data will come up delete (online pro 1)
Step 3 reset fifa 17 now you wont have any ported pro over from fifa 16 and you will make a new fresh pro on fifa 17 which should have all the passive traits.

This fix has been tested and players who don't do it can't perform power free kick this is not a visual bug as I and others might have thought before the testing.
