Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne was left bemused by John Stone’s confirmed FIFA 22 ratings.
FIFA’s annual release of players’ ratings has inevitably caused a stir. Fans are fuming that their favourite players have supposedly been underrated by EA Sports.
Some frustrations are of course more justified than others, and the whole issue is largely subjective. But one thing that shouldn’t be up for debate is that John Stones deserved higher ratings.
In a new video released by the club this week, De Bruyne and Foden were made to try and identify their City teammates based on their statistics on FIFA 22.
When looking at John Stones’ 83-rated card, De Bruyne felt that it would be a defensive midfielder rather than a central defender, as the 30-year-old admitted that the likes of Stones and Dias would have a higher defensive rating than (84).
“It’s a defender or Rodri. I would say our defenders are better defensively that that (84),” De Bruyne said.
“83?! How can he [John Stones] only have an 83 rating after the year he had?!”
Man City fans on Twitter has since exploded with reactions to the released ratings, with the large majority believing that John Stone have been undervalued.
