Following the completion of his transfer to Saudi Arabian team Al-Nassr last week, Cristiano Ronaldo’s most recent FIFA rating has significantly declined.
Ronaldo‘s tenure in Europe came to a painful end after years of dominating at the top of European football following his explosive conversation with Piers Morgan last month.
Ronaldo attacked Manchester United, previous manager Ralf Rangnick, current manager Erik ten Hag, as well as players like Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney during his interview with Morgan.
Following a mutual termination of his contract, Ronaldo has now joined the Saudi Arabian team Al-Nassr.
Ronaldo’s score on the well-liked video game FIFA 23 has dropped since it was announced that he will be moving to the Middle East.
Ronaldo was rated 90 when the game first came out, placing him among the best 10 players in the world.
His rating is only 88 right now, though. Since this time last year, there have been three points less. While the 37-year-stamina old’s rating decreased from 74 to 70, his dribbling rating declined from 84 to 81.
Since FIFA 11, Ronaldo’s overall rating hasn’t fallen below 90 till now.
Only Ronaldo’s career mode numbers will change in FIFA; his FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) cards won’t.
Numerous people have criticized the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s decision to join Al-Nassr, but Rio Ferdinand, a former United teammate, has backed the captain of Portugal. He said:
“It was great to see David Beckham, Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard, it was great to see them go to America.
“What a way to finish their careers, getting great money, going to a league that’s not as competitive, they’ve deserved that, they’ve earned the right.
“That’s all I saw in the media. But because it’s Saudi Arabia, it’s a disgrace, it’s sad. Let a man go and live, let a man go and enjoy it. It’s a new adventure. He’s taking his family to experience a new culture.”
