Chelsea players Rudiger and Mendy are not at all satisfied with their FIFA ratings

EA Sports’ FIFA franchise has now become a very relevant name when we think of anything related to soccer. While there are other franchises such as PES by Konami, who make similar soccer simulation games, FIFA is by far the most popular in terms of outreach and users.

It is indeed a matter of prestige for football players to acknowledge their game ratings according to their capabilities. In the above context, Rudiger and Mendy have an overall rating of 83, which is definitely disappointing for both of the players. Mendy, as read in the tweet, says, “I don’t play FIFA because I don’t like my ratings! This season is still bad! Even for Toni, he wasn’t happy. I don’t have Twitter otherwise I would definitely complain!”

Speaking of Rudiger, he has also complained about the same on Twitter, trying to hold EA Sports accountable for giving him a bad pace rating. He says, “Come on EASportsFIFA … 35,8 km/h top speed on the pitch and only 75 Pace in FIFA22?! What do I need to get around 90 pace? 50 km/h?”
