Konami has made the shock decision to hand Ronaldinho a lower rating than Ji-sung Park in the upcoming eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020.
The legendary Brazilian, 39, is a PES legend in the title and also the cover star for the Legend Edition.
But the PES 2020 publisher has dropped a bombshell by rating the former Barcelona superstar an 81 rating.
According to Real Sport, former Manchester United player Park, 38, has an overall rating of 86.
Konami has also revealed that the legendary Diego Maradona has a whopping 97 overall, while Dutch icon Johan Cruyff holds a 92 rating.
David Beckham, who was on the cover for PES 2019 David Beckham Edition, is also making his return as a PES legend and holds an impressive 89 overall.
It's worth remembering that the ratings could be changed ahead of the title's release in September.
And in the case of Ronaldinho, the Legend Edition cover star could have another version with a much higher rating.
Posted below are the confirmed legends and their ratings.
Oliver Kahn (GK): 90
Patrick Vieira (DMF): 88
Lothar Matthaus (CMF): 87
Pavel Nedved (LMF): 88
Hidetoshi Nakata (AMF): 85
Andres Iniesta (CMF): 90
David Beckham (RMF): 89
Francesco Totti (SS): 87
Johan Cruyff (SS): 92
Gabriel Batistuta (SS): 88
Diego Maradona (SS): 97
Ronaldinho (AMF): 81
Ji-sung Park (AMF): 86
Konami dropped the demo for PES 2020 last month, which revealed that the ratings for both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the same.
But the Barcelona superstar, 32, can move his overall ahead of the Juventus ace, 34, with an easy trick in PES 2020.
The PES 2020 publisher has signed up partnerships with several clubs, including Celtic, United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
And Konami dealt a massive blow to EA Sports' FIFA 20 after securing an exclusive partnership with Juventus.
PES 2020's standard cover features Messi alongside Bayern Munich's Serge Gnabry, Juventus' Miralem Pjanic and United's Scott McTominay.
Konami plans to release PES 2020 on 10th September for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Even Modern day Ronaldinho still has the skills to make any team that bit stronger! :flag_br::fire: #eFootballPES2020 pic.twitter.com/5ozIrh4kXg
