Romelu Lukaku Has A Theory Behind FIFA 21's Latest Player Ratings
Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has hit out at EA Sports for their latest batch of player ratings.
On Thursday night, EA dropped the top 100 highest-rated players in FIFA 21, with Lionel Messi coming out top with a 93-rated card. Cristiano Ronaldo [92-rated] and Robert Lewandowski [91-rated] deservedly made up the top three but the decision to either downgrade or upgrade several players has somewhat overshadowed the news.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang's downgrade of -1 was met with disapproval from fans, Serge Gnabry was given a -8 pace downgrade for no apparent reason and the decision to give Paul Pogba the same rating as Jordan Henderson wasn't exactly a popular one among the FIFA community.
The fact that Alphonso Davies wasn't rated in the top 20 full-backs in the game was also a big talking point, not to mention Timo Werner's bizarre downgrade after an incredible season for RB Leipzig, where he netted 34 goals in 45 appearances.
AND despite scoring 34 goals in his debut campaign for Inter Milan, striker Romelu Lukaku was given the same rating as last year; a decision that sparked a strong reaction from the Belgian forward on Friday morning.
Lukaku accused EA of messing with the ratings so "we players start complaining about the game and give them more publicity."

He also complained about EA's decision to give him 81 pace. "81 pace bruh did they see my goal against Shakthar Donetsk...the f*** is wrong with them..."
This isn't the first time Lukaku has been given a hard time by EA. Lukaku was knocked down from 87 to 85 in FIFA 20 after an underwhelming final season at Manchester United but the major gripe stemmed from the fact his pace rating was downgraded by nine - taking him down from 84 to 75.
Thoughts on Lukaku's theory? Are EA messing with the ratings so players start complaining about the game to give them more publicity?
