Vinicius Jr. was not happy with his defending stat in FIFA 23 and complained about it to anyone who would listen in a hilarious video.

The Real Madrid winger has developed into one of Carlo Ancelotti's most dependable attackers after a tough start to life in Spain.

He scored the winner in last season's Champions League final and has started this campaign with five goals in six games.

In FIFA 22, Vinicius was an 80-rated card and that's been bumped up to an 86-rated card for this year's game. A huge improvement.

The 22-year-old wanted more though. In a video shared to Real's YouTube channel, Vinicius and teammates Aurelien Tchouameni, Federico Valverde and Rodrygo took turns in guessing their own stats.

Vinicius was asked to take a punt at his own defending numbers and he replied: "I think 60."

Both presenters let out a chuckle before informing the Brazil international he only had 29 in his defending stats.

Most attackers on FIFA have low stand tackle and slide tackle stats so they can have better attacking numbers. Otherwise, we'd all be running around with 99 rated players in our Ultimate Teams.

Try telling that to Vinicius. He was almost inconsolable next to Tchouameni and let out a yell of: "WHAATT? 29? I'm always down there with the full-back!"

Even Rodrygo and Valverde looked shocked on the opposite side of the room, putting their head in their hands.

Ancelotti's return to the Santiago Bernabeu last summer is what helped Vinicius discover his best form.

The Italian explained following Real's victory over Liverpool in May: "With Vinicius the only thing in which I have helped him is giving him the confidence that he needed.

"He didn’t play at the start after his holidays and later he played all the time.

"Where he has improved is the effectiveness in front of goal, he hasn’t changed any of the rest.

"Another year with [Karim] Benzema has helped him. I’m happy because he has put the cherry on the cake."
