"What Is This?!"- Spurs' Japhet Tanganga Not Happy With FIFA 22 Ratings

"What Is This?!"- Spurs' Japhet Tanganga Not Happy With FIFA 22 Ratings

Spurs defender Japhet Tanganga wasn't best pleased when he found out his FIFA 22 ratings earlier this week.

In a video released on Spurs TV, the 22 year old and teammates Sergio Reguilón and Matt Doherty reacted to how the latest version of the game, which is to be released on 1st October, rates them and it's fair to say the former wasn't impressed.


"What is this?!" he exclaimed. "73?! Right-back, I'm not using myself, who would use this?"

Meanwhile, Reguilón and Doherty were pretty content with their ratings of 81 and 78 respectively.

Tanganga's anger is justified by the fact he's been one of Tottenham's most impressive players in recent months. Despite picking up a red card in Spurs' last outing at Crystal Palace, the Hackney-born defender has established himself as a key part of Nuno Espírito Santo's defence and was awarded Sky Sports' Man of the Match in the opening day win against Manchester City.

"You can't have Doherty ranked higher than Tanganga," one Spurs fan tweeted in reply to the video. "Geez! Please show some respect to @JTanganga99 who is one of our best defenders & has all the potential to become a TOP player."

"Should be 78 rated and rare," another commented.

"EA done him so dirty," a fellow fan remarked. "He at least should be a non rare gold."

Tanganga is not the only Premier League player to have reacted badly to how FIFA considers them this year. England stars Declan Rice and Jack Grealish couldn't help but laugh at the former's low rating for pace, with the West Ham United midfielder exclaiming 'I'm not slow!'.

Moreover, Arsenal fans are also aggrieved, with The Gunners having no walkout quality players this year, a far cry from previous incarnations of the game.

With less than a fortnight until FIFA 22 is available to buy, expect to see more interesting reactions from footballers across the globe in the next few weeks.
