Rio Ferdinand is Really Unhappy With His FIFA 17 Rating

Rio Ferdinand is Really Unhappy With His FIFA 17 Rating

Rio Ferdinand might have retired from football a few years ago now, but the former Manchester United ace is still included in each edition of the FIFA games – and he really cares about his rating.

The former England centre-back is given a FIFA ‘card’ as one of the game’s legends, with makers EA Sports judging attributes like his passing, shooting, pace and dribbling.

It appears the guys over at EA have a pretty short memory, because whilst Ferdinand’s overall rating of 88 is pretty impressive, some of his individual characteristics aren’t – and he’s far from happy about it:

To be fair, he we think Rio has a pretty valid point here.

Back in his heyday, when he was leading Man Utd to Champions League finals, he was untouchable in his position, and definitely faster than a paltry 81 pace.

Or, have we and Rio got it all wrong? What do you think?
