After his move away from Manchester United and his free agent status, many were wondering what Cristiano Ronaldo’s next team would be after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Many were expecting the Real Madrid striker to sign for another Champions League team or at least make a return to Sporting C.P., but he ended up signing for Al-Nassr of the Saudi Arabian league.
It seems that at EA Sports, Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision did not go down well. Maybe they believe that the Portuguese star should have prioritized sporting glory over financial gain, or simply think that he is no longer the footballer he once was. Whichever it is, they decided to punish him in FIFA 23.
So what are we talking about? In a recent update, EA Sports has decided to lower Cristiano Ronaldo’s average in FIFA 23.
The striker who played for Real Madrid, Manchester United and Juventus F.C. has an average of 88. It is the first time since FIFA 11 that he has a rating lower than 90, which means that he is no longer one of the best players in the game.
It should be mentioned that this rating applies to modes such as Career Mode or Friendlies. That said, considering that he is now in an unpopular league with few high average players, it is difficult for him to have good chemistry with your other players.
Even so, we are sure that Ronaldo’s biggest fans will make the necessary sacrifices to find him a place. How about you, how did you feel about this change, do you think Cristiano Ronaldo deserves the 88 rating? Tell us in the comments.
FIFA 23 has been available since September 30 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox X|S Series, Xbox One, STADIA and PC (via EA app, Steam and Epic Games Store).
