We don’t have time to play video-games, but because we spend most of the day on the laptop writing articles about football instead, we hear from plenty of people who do!
And a large number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to complain about the latest ratings release for the eagerly anticipated FIFA 18.
EA Sports will slowly release the 100 highest rated players throughout the week, but there’s already been a big surprise regarding Sadio Mane’s ’84’.
Our Senegalese winger was one of the best players in the country last term and has started this campaign ins scintillating form, yet FIFA has the likes of Kamil Glik and 36-year-old Andrea Barzagli ahead of him!
Yes, their ratings are based on defensive attributes, but the overall score essentially reflects ‘how good’ a player is – which is farcical.
If that pair wasn’t bad enough, Ilkay Gundogan, who’s played a handful of games since 2014, is rated 85!
Perhaps EA have it in for Liverpool due to our partnership with Pro Evolution Soccer…
It’s the only explanation!
