Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Reacts To Being Downgraded For FIFA 21

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the first player to show he's not happy with his rating on FIFA 21, after the forward was downgraded from last year's game.

Aubameyang was last season's second top scorer in the Premier League and led Arsenal to an FA Cup victory, scoring twice in the semi final and final, and then scored again in the Gunners Community Shield win over Liverpool last month.

However despite all that the Gabon forward actually found his FIFA rating downgraded on FIFA 21 compared with FIFA 20, when the top 100 ratings came out on Thursday.

Clearly Aubameyang is pretty amused by it all and he reacted to the news on Twitter.

Interestingly the former Borussia Dortmund player's stats are actually up one for shooting, dribbling and defending but with age his pace has dropped one.

That suggests that there's a higher stock in pace than the other stats, which probably shouldn't be the case.

The move in his overall rating also means that the 31-year-old doesn't make the top 10 in the Premier League, based on the ratings for this year's game.

PFA Player of the Year winner Kevin de Bruyne leads the way with 91, ahead of Liverpool foursome Virgil van Dijk, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Alisson all on 90.

Sergio Aguero is the only player from England's top tier on 89 and then Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Ederson and N'Golo Kante on 88 make up the top 10.

Auba's 87 puts him level with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Hugo Lloris, Son Heung-min, Roberto Firmino, Fabinho, Bruno Fernandes, Aymeric Laporte, Andy Robertson and Bernardo Silva.

Fans have already voiced their opinion on the ratings as well and it's no surprise to find that Aubameyang ended up trending for his downgrade.

The Arsenal forward might have been the first player to complain about his rating for the latest edition of the franchise, but he won't be the last.

Which player do you think was hardest done by? Let us know in the comments.
