Alexis Sanchez Receives One Of The Biggest Downgrades In FIFA History With 82-Rating

Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez has been handed one of the biggest downgrades in FIFA history following a disastrous 2018/19 campaign.

The Chilean struggled to make any sort of impact at Old Trafford following his move from Arsenal in 2018 - and scored just twice in 27 appearances last season before heading to Inter Milan on loan.

As a result of his poor form, EA Sports have decided to give him a -5 downgrade on his previous 87-rated card in FIFA 19.

Sanchez's 82-rated card in FIFA 20 also includes stat decreases in the pace, dribbling and passing department, while his overall shooting ability has also taken a dramatic hit.

This is the 30-year-old's lowest rated Ultimate Team rating since FIFA 11, where he was given a 80-rated card at Italian side Udinese.

Many believe EA Sports are "harsh" to give him such a prolific downgrade.

"82? Well he deserves it based on his performance but -5 is too harsh in my opinion." said one FUThead user while another wrote: "83 would have been fair, -5 is hard to justify, even if he didn't play well."

In terms of other big downgrades in FIFA 20, Manchester United teammate Nemanja Matic has also received a -5 hit on his previous 86-rated card.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, FC Augsburg defender Stephan Lichsteiner and VfB Stuttgart forward Mario Gomez have been handed the same fate.

Crystal Palace centre-back Gary Cahill is next on the list with a -4 downgrade, but that was expected.

Do you think Alexis Sanchez deserves such a big downgrade on the new game?
