The latest FIFA ratings are still causing a stir among football fans and perhaps the greatest dismay comes when Manchester United fans find out that Mason Greenwood is rated lower than Fred.
EA Sports released the top 22 player ratings and, as always, that left many fans in awe.
For starters, United fans will have been extremely disappointed to see Cristiano Ronaldo placed third and second, without even being the best player in the Premier League.
Now they’ll be even more disappointed after FIFA’s Ultimate Team reveals the entire team standings.
Bruno Fernandes received a +1 boost from his card the year before, but his fans will still be disappointed that it wasn’t higher considering the season he had and the fact that he was in EA Sports’ Team of the Year and Premier League Team. of the season.
That being said, the biggest disappointment will be Greenwood’s score, especially given the start to the season he’s had.
Similar to Fernandes, he received a +1 from FIFA 21, but compared to Fred that many Manchester United fans don’t rate, he is two ratings lower than the Brazilian.
The 19-year-old will receive a card of 78 at the start of the game while his Brazilian teammate will receive a card of 81.
The decision did not go unnoticed by some supporters on Twitter.
“The fact that Greenwood is 78 is criminal,” one wrote, while another called the game a “joke.”
However, their surprise is nothing compared to Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden when they were tricked into thinking Kyle Walker’s pace was 78.
“He’s the fastest person in the world,” said De Bruyne with a laugh.
Foden, meanwhile, was so shocked that he almost left the room.
Greenwood recently scored against Wolves in a relentless 1-0 win for the Red Devils and it was his third in as many appearances. Despite the form he has shown, EA Sports believe his rating doesn’t justify anything other than Fred’s.
While Greenwood must be disappointed, he hopes to quickly put that behind him and show EA why he deserves a top rated card.
He will be looking to show off his talents in Manchester United’s Champions League group stage opener against Young Boys in Switzerland, a game you can stream live on talkSPORT 2.
