Cristiano Ronaldo And Lionel Messi's EA Sports TOTS Ratings Are Causing A Stir
Yesterday EA Sports released their La Liga Team of the Season and though it was a given that the two titans of football, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, would be included, their ratings have caused reaction aplenty.
Ronaldo, who has netted 43 goals in all competitions this season, has been given his second insane 99-rated card of the season - boasting ridiculous stats like 97 pace, 98 dribbling and 99 shooting.
His fellow five-time Ballon d'Or winner and rival Messi has two more goals overall this term and it's popular opinion that he has had the better season.
But his TOTS card is one rating lower than FIFA 18's cover star on 98, with Messi only ahead of CR7 in the main statistics when it comes to passing.
Naturally, a lot of people aren't happy with the moves EA Sports have made:
Don't even mention Messi in the tweet and rate him 98 lmaoo grow up- :flag_ar: (@SNutmeg9) May 11, 2018
You know why though mate, wouldn't be surprised if there is a clause in the contract starting CR7 has to have a higher rating than Messi- Tain (@Aintainee) May 11, 2018

Man woke up to a whole load of bullshit today. First they cancel Lucifer and now Fifa 18 gave Ronaldo a 99 and gave Messi a 98? All I need now is to tear an acl to cap off the day.- Tamale Papi (@QuitWoofin) May 11, 2018
