Manchester United's Marcus Rashford believes he is better than some of his ratings by gaming giants EA SPORTS FC.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is unhappy with his latest rating on EA SPORTS FC 24 and wants to chat with the developers.

Rashford was shocked by one of the ratings after EA SPORTS FC 24 released its highest-rated players last week.

The United forward reacted in a promotional video for the latest edition of the game posted on the Premier League YouTube page.


As reported by Pulse Sports, the best-rated players were revealed by EA SPORTS ahead of the official release of the 2024 edition. 

Al Nassr’s Cristiano Ronaldo was the highest-profile omission from the top 20 list made available by EA SPORTS on their social media pages. 

Among those in the top 10 were Manchester City duo Kevin de Bruyne and Erling Haaland, Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain and Alexia Putellas of Barcelona Femeni.

Rashford’s reaction to EA SPORTS

In the Premier League video, the 25-year-old United forward tried to guess some of his ratings in the FC 24 edition.

Rashford agreed with some but felt he should have better ratings in others while one of them left him in a state of shock.

While EA SPORTS upgraded his overall rating from 83 in FC 23 to 85 in FC 24, the Red Devil wants a conversation with the developers to understand why he was rated low in defence. 

Speaking in the video, Rashford, who was rated 78 for passing but believes it should be 80, was furious when he found out his defending was 41 in 23 and 42 in 24.

“Am I that bad?” the England international quizzed. “I am shocked with this one, I can’t lie,” he added per nme.

Rashford also suggested that his 74 rating for physique is too low and should be around 76.
