Cristiano Ronaldo's ratings for FIFA 22 appear to have been leaked, with the 36 year old noticeably less quick and strong.
According to GiveMeSport, the Portuguese international has a 91 rating overall, with an shooting and passing stats of 93 and 82 respectively.
However, the new Manchester United man, who has enjoyed an amazing start to life back at Old Trafford, has seen his stats for pace, stamina and strength all fall, much to the bemusement of those who've seen him in action over the last 12 months.
Fans of Ronaldo will be all the more miffed by the fact that Lionel Messi is the highest rated player in the new game. Whilst the former edges out the latter in terms of his shooting and physicality, Messi has much stronger dribbling and passing statistics.
It would be interesting to see how both players perceive their new FIFA ratings. Earlier this week, England stars Declan Rice and Jack Grealish laughed off the lack of pace the West Ham United midfielder had been awarded whilst Manchester City maestros Kevin de Bruyne and Phil Foden were amazed by some of their teammates' statistics on FIFA 22.
Despite his decline in ratings, Ronaldo won't be the most embarrassed when playing this year's version of the game. That prize goes to Arsenal fans, who face a FIFA that has zero walkout quality players from their club.
Should Ronaldo continue his exceptional start to life back in the Premier League, his ratings for FIFA 23 will go through the roof. The ex-Real Madrid and Juventus man has already netted three times in his two appearances for the club so far, including an amazing brace on his second debut against Newcastle last Saturday.
Having moved to a quieter, more secure home in the last few days too, expect Manchester United's new number 7 to come out firing this season and take his FIFA ratings back up to where many feel they belong.
