Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane were far from impressed with EA Sports' decision to downgrade their rating on FIFA 22 - and their initial reactions were captured for the club's official YouTube channel.
In the clip, Andy Robertson and Virgil van Dijk were tasked with handing out VIP copies of the popular game to the rest of the squad, with the likes of Alisson, Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson and Curtis Jones featuring throughout.
As you can see in the clip below, Robertson and Van Dijk walk to the treatment room to get Salah's reaction to his -1 downgrade on his latest card. "Why've you been downgraded Mo? You've gone down by one," asks the Liverpool full-back.

Salah, looking a tad surprised, responds saying: "I don't know. I scored more goals last season than the season before I think..."
Robertson then proceeds to wind him up further. "You know what as well Mo? I'm stronger than you," he comments, before the Egyptian forward says: "Seriously? Milly! Milly! [Milner] Can you please explain this to me? Robbo is stronger than me!"
Moments later and Van Dijk hands over a VIP copy of FIFA 22 to Sadio Mane, who was also given a -1 downgrade.
"I'm not happy! I'm not happy!" says the Senegalese international.
Lmaoo salah is really offended that robertson is "stronger" than him :joy::joy: and mane's " i am not happy" is about to become a meme :joy:- Mohamed Mazhar (@mohamedmazhar_) October 1, 2021
It was revealed last month that Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dijk and Alisson have all been downgraded in FIFA 22 after the Reds failed to defend their Premier League title.
Despite scoring 22 Premier League goals last season, Salah's card was perhaps wrongfully decreased, while Van Dijk, who missed a large chunk of the 2020/21 campaign through injury, also seen a hit on his overall rating.
The ratings certainly caused plenty of controversy on social media.
