Cristiano Ronaldo's stats in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team emerge as YouTuber packs first ever card
| Last updated
A breakdown of Cristiano Ronaldo's stats – as well as his PlayStyles – have emerged after a YouTuber packed the Al Nassr forward on EA FC 24's Ultimate Team.
The 38-year-old, who is currently the Saudi Pro League's top goalscorer with seven goals in five games, has been handed an 86-rated ST card on this year's FUT game mode.
Ronaldo's rating may have dropped to the lowest ever in an EA Sports title but the former Manchester United and Real Madrid man has some very respectable stats to his name, despite an obvious downgrade.
FIFA content creator AA9skills managed to pack Portugal's all-time top goalscorer in a recent YouTube video and as a result, he gave fans an insight into Ronaldo's FUT skillset.
As you can see from the screenshot below [without the Hunter chemistry style included], his speed stats include 77 pace, 73 acceleration and 80 sprint speed.
Other standout attributes include 88 shooting, 90 attacking position, 87 finishing and 92 shot power – not to mention 77 stamina and 76 strength – two stats that will no doubt spark plenty of debate.
For example, EA have handed over five normal PlayStyles to five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo, including Power Header, Flair, Trivela, Acrobatic and Aerial.
He has also received a single PlayStyles+ mechanic in the game – the Power Shot.
Ronaldo's feelings on his latest FC24 card are not yet known, but he once blocked popular statistics website Transfermarkt after they gave him a noticeable downgrade.
At the time, the experienced forward had scored 21 goals in 21 Serie A games for Juventus.
But the German publication handed Ronaldo an overall valuation of £67.5 million, which was a drop from the £88 million Juventus paid Real Madrid in 2018.
He was 37th in the world and extremely unhappy with his position. Transfermarkt's UK manager Daniel Busch later explained the situation to The Athletic.
"I think we put a list (on Instagram) with 10 players, 33 and older, and he (Ronaldo) was still in first place, but he said he must be worth much more," he said.
"He sent a message first to our social media guys. They answered him, explained why, and told him, ‘The people in your own age group, you are by far the number one’.
Busch added: "I think it was £30-50 million difference (between Ronaldo and the next player on the list), and then he sent some smilies, and then he blocked us."
