6 stars’ reactions to their FIFA 22 rating – including Giroud and Grealish
Various footballers have been reacting to their ratings on the new FIFA 22 game set to be released on September 26.
The highest-rated players were announced earlier this week, with Lionel Messi topping the list with 93, Robert Lewandowski in second with 92 and Cristiano Ronaldo finishing third with 91.
Other stars have also been made to read out and react to their ratings on their respective club social media channels, with several complaining about their attributes.
Among those was Chelsea’s Champions League-winning defender Antonio Rudiger, who took to Twitter to blast EA Sports for giving him a pace rating of 75.
Rudiger said: "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?"
Olivier Giroud, now at AC Milan, also made his displeasure known at his lack of pace on the game, having received a rating of 39.

The former Chelsea striker exclaimed after seeing his pace: “Impossible! My three-year-old son’s got more than 39 pace.”
Meanwhile, Manchester City’s £100million signing Grealish was ecstatic at having received an overall rating of 84.
Grealish said: “Go on FIFA! Better pace, better shooting, better passing, better physical. 88 dribbling I’ll take that all day.”
Do you think Giroud deserves more than 39 pace on FIFA 22? Let us know in the comments section.
His England team-mate Declan Rice then joked that he would perform an RKO wrestling move on the card if it was lower than 80.
Luckily for the West Ham midfielder and the cardboard cut-out, Rice received an 82, stating: “[I'm] happy with that.”
But Rice was left wanting with his pace rating of 66, adding: “I’m convinced they just sit at a computer desk bored writing a thousand players down, saying ‘Oh he’s a 60-something, he’s a 70-something.’”
Man City duo Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne were also given their ratings along with the rest of the squad.
Midfield sensation Foden said: “Sorted me out well this year. I’ll take that. Happy with that. Gave me some good pace this time.”
His team-mate De Bruyne on the other hand merely seemed content at the fact he is the joint-third highest rated player in the game.
When asked how he felt, the Belgian simply replied: “Happy.”
