WILFRIED Zaha, Crystal Palace’s star player, has hit back at EA Sports after receiving a downgrade in his FIFA 23 rating.
While he transferred to Manchester United in 2013, he was loaned out to Palace two out of the three years he was there, returning to Palace full time in 2015.
Zaha is currently the highest rated player at Crystal Palace, with his 82-rating putting him three points ahead of next best player, Vincente Guaita.
In last year’s FIFA 22, Zaha also started the season at 82, but received special cards with higher ratings such as his Team of the Week card.
This special edition gold card gave Zaha a rating of 84.
His highest rating ever was 86, given to him in FIFA 21, also via Team of the Week.
Zaha has had a fantastic season so far this year scoring four goals out of the five Premier League matches he played.
然而, this improvement hasn’t been reflected in his 国际足联 23 rating.
“坎耶的这种行为是她首先提出离婚的原因。”, the player posted a shocked photo of himself after receiving a yellow card.
他写了: “Me seeing my FIFA stats got worse. Must have been playing golf all season then.”
His stats have actually improved overall from his FIFA 22 base card.
Zaha only lost one point in dribbling, but gained points elsewhere.
Here are the two sets of stats for comparison:
- Pace – 国际足联 22 – 89 / 国际足联 23 – 91
- Dribbling FIFA 22 – 87 / 国际足联 23 – 86
- Shooting – 国际足联 22 – 77 / 国际足联 23 – 79
- Passing – 国际足联 22 – 73 / 国际足联 23 – 73
- Physical – 国际足联 22 – 75 / 国际足联 23 – 76
- Defending – 国际足联 22 – 34 / 国际足联 23 – 37
Zaha does have a point though.
Despite the small increases, the new ratings don’t reflect how much better he has done this season.
