The new FIFA 21 ratings were revealed two weeks ago, and not too many fans and players were happy with how EA Sports has dished out the ratings.

A number of world-class players have received major downgrades, and one agitated gamer has created a petition asking EA Sports to redo the ratings. The petition that has been started on change.org by David Mariyasin reads, "Request EA to redo the FIFA 21 ratings’.

"EA recently released the FIFA 21 ratings and so many of them have came out so inaccurate that it almost looks like everyone got downgraded and EA didn’t watch any of the 2019-20 season, I would like them to get a redo look over at these ratings and do a rerelease before people end up not buying this game.”

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s rating has decreased despite a stellar 2019/20. Meanwhile, Jordan Henderson and Paul Pogba have the exact same rating. Go figure.

Here are 10 of the biggest downgrades in the FIFA 21 ratings.
