Romelu Lukaku Given Pace Downgrade Of Nine On FIFA 20

Romelu Lukaku Given Pace Downgrade Of Nine On FIFA 20

Romelu Lukaku won't be best-pleased with his FIFA 20 rating, specifically his pace statistics given to him by EA Sports.

Today EA shared the top 100 players on the new game and the Inter Milan striker made the cut, coming in at 85th on the list. Lukaku has been knocked down from 87 to 85 after an underwhelming final season at Manchester United.

But the 26-year old's major gripe will stem from the fact his pace rating has been downgraded by NINE - taking him down from 84 to 75 in a pretty dismal drop.

It's pretty damning for Lukaku, who actually requested EA increase his acceleration on his 88-rated in-form card in FIFA 18, making the demand after he produced an utter ridiculous turn of pace in stoppage time during a 2-1 win over former club Chelsea at Old Trafford.

The Belgian hasn't yet commented on his card and set of stats, but we really hope he has a meltdown on par to Daniel Sturridge's priceless reaction to his pace rating decrease on FIFA 18.

Sturridge took part in a game of 'Roomates' along with Raheem Sterling while on international duty for England and found out his pace had gone down to 76 from 89.

Stating that he was "one of the fastest strikers in the Premier League", he called it a disrespect to his integrity and credibility - even calling for whoever was responsible for the downgrade to be given the boot.
