EA Sports Has Dropped Cristiano Ronaldo From The New FIFA 19 Cover

EA Sports is getting ready for the Champions League to return next week and has decided to drop Cristiano Ronaldo from the cover of FIFA 19.

The 34-year-old Juventus ace featured on the box art for the standard version of the title, while the Champions Edition had him sharing co-cover duties with Neymar.

While the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star featured on the cover last year -- not to mention that he's the top scorer in the Champions League's history and he's been snubbed on the new box art -- it's not bad news for Neymar.

That's right, the Paris Saint-Germain star has kept his spot on the new cover and is joined by Juventus' Paulo Dybala and Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne.

"Get ready for the return of the UEFA Champions League with amazing new content in FIFA 19," EA said on its website.

"With special Champions League kits and player items, as well as your choice of a Neymar Jr, Kevin De Bruyne or Paulo Dybala ten-match loan item for your team, there's no better time to get started in FIFA 19!"

Ronaldo can at least take comfort in the fact that he has secured a spot in the latest Team of the Week for Ultimate Team.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner's card is a 95-rated ST (posted below in the tweet) and has 91 pace, 91 dribbling, 94 shooting, 36 defending, 83 passing and 81 physical.

FIFA 19 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Should Ronaldo have been dropped from the cover?

Let us know in the comments.
