Jadon Sancho Is Not Happy With His New FIFA 20 Card
Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is far from convinced by his FIFA 20 card ahead of the upcoming release on September 24.
The 19-year-old, who has recorded more assists in Europe's top five leagues than any other player since the start of the 2018/19 season, has been given a "harsh" 77 passing rating by EA Sports.
Shortly after the official top 100 player ratings were released, Sancho took to Twitter earlier to voice his opinion. "77 passing?!"
EA Sports responded to his question, suggesting that he focus on his more impressive 90 dribbling stat.
"Why pass when you have 90 dribbling?" they said.
But Sancho is not budging on his opinion. To be fair, both Harry Kane and Thomas Muller have better passing stats than the Borussia Dortmund and England international, which is questionable, to say the least.
"I think both could be 90. A bit harsh." wrote the youngster.

Dortmund teammate Axel Witsel has been given a higher passing rating as well, much to the dismay of Sancho. "Better passing?" he said.

Following on from the release of the 100 highest-rated players on FIFA 20 last week, EA Sports have now revealed the first batch of ratings - with it now official that Lionel Messi is the best player on the game.
Messi has overtaken Cristiano Ronaldo as the best player in FIFA, having been given a 94-rated card this time around following his stunning individual season for Barcelona.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has 96 dribbling, 87 passing, 92 shooting and 92 passing, with Juventus/Piemonte Calcio star Ronaldo one mark down on 93 and boasting key stats such as 88 dribbling, 89 pace, 93 shooting and 82 passing.
Thoughts on the above ratings? Does Jadon Sancho deserve better passing?
