Dele Alli has branded his FIFA 18 rating unrealistic – following a string of strong performances for Tottenham and England.
The 21-year-old, who previously said that he expected a rating between 86 and 85, was awarded 84 this year.
In an appearance with Rio Ferdinand on the former Manchester United defender’s YouTube channel, Alli revealed he’s far from happy about the rating.
“I’m not (happy),” he told Ferdinand, shaking his head. “Every year… I thought it was going to be more realistic this year.”
Ferdinand then passes him the big cut-out and Dele replies, jokingly: “I don’t want to hold it.”
He continued: “Obviously, the defending is really low. When I started at MK I always played in defensive midfield so I think I’m a lot better than what I clearly am according to this.
“I’m quite slow so the pace is alright. But shooting should probably be higher, dribbling higher … passing.”
Ferdinand then allows Dele to reassess his own scores – and Tottenham star boosts everything apart from his 76 pace score.
On passing, Alli has an interesting, if not entirely convincing, theory.
“It depends who you play with as Harry Kane doesn’t really run in behind much so maybe that’s why they aren’t seeing it.”
On his physical attributes, he says: “I could probably do more in the gym, to be fair.”
