Thierry Henry shocked by Cristiano Ronaldo’s EA Sports FC 24 rating
This is Cristiano Ronaldo’s biggest rating drop in 16 years
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry couldn’t believe it when he saw Cristiano Ronaldo’s EA FC 24 stats. Henry said: “No, that’s not him,” before adding “Wow, that’s bad.”
Cristiano Ronaldo has been a powerhouse in football and FIFA. He along with Lionel Messi were topping the rating charts in the game.
His rating has dropped to 86 from 90 from the last edition of the game. This was Ronaldo’s biggest rating drop in 16 years.
The Portuguese forward’s rating of 86 comprises of 77 pace, 88 shooting, 75 passing, 80 dribbling, 34 defending and 74 physical attributes. Thierry Henry was in shock when he saw these stats.
To add insult to injury, Messi is still at 90 while he is also eclipsed in the Saudi Pro League by Karim Benzema’s 90 and Neymar’s 89.
And Henry couldn’t believe what he was seeing when confronted with Ronaldo’s new but definitely not improved attributes.

The Arsenal legend took part in a guessing game at the FC 24 launch when he was shown a card belonging to an unnamed Saudi League player.
Henry name-checked the shooting, passing and dribbling stats to try and work out who it could be but the low scores in each left him flummoxed.
When it was revealed to be Ronaldo, Henry looked aghast as he said: “No, that’s not him.”
After the realisation set in, Henry’s face turned the picture of shock as he shouted ‘Wow’.
He then added: “That’s bad!”
Ronaldo, who has now scored in six successive games for Al Nassr, told reporters: “They say Ronaldo is done… but it’s not true.
“I will continue to play until my legs say: ‘Cristiano, I’m done. I still have a lot. I still love football and scoring goals. I still love winning. They say I’m done but I’m still proving that it’s not true.”
