Cristiano Ronaldo's fans aren’t happy as a massive Fédération internationale de Football Association (FIFA) 23 player ratings leak seems to have revealed a major downgrade to the Manchester United star.

According to Dot Esports, an Xbox glitch on Tuesday allowed players to download the full version of FIFA 23, which is EA Sports’ soccer game. It will officially launch on Sept. 30. Thanks to the glitch, Xbox Series X|S users could download FIFA 23's Xbox One version. They could not only access the game, but also play it and check out what EA got cooking for Ultimate Team. It is the most popular mode in FIFA.

The users that were granted this early access to FIFA 23 by mistake have already started to leak all kinds of FIFA 23 content. It includes the best players in the game, the ratings for the best soccer clubs in the game and more. Apart from the leaked overall ratings, users have not forgotten to bring up the statistics of Ronaldo. He is considered to be one of the best soccer players of all time. Even though he is not getting any younger, he is one of the best players in FIFA 23, revealed the leaks.

According to leaks caused by the Xbox glitch, the 37-year-old has a 90 overall rating in FIFA 23. He is a striker in FIFA 23 with 92 shooting, 34 defending, 85 dribbling, 75 physical, 81 pace and 78 passing. If this gets confirmed, the star footballer's base card in FIFA 23 will be significantly worse than his base card in FIFA 22. It is mostly because of his pace, which is one of the key statistics in FIFA games. It has dropped from 87 in FIFA 22 to 81 in FIFA 23.

The downgrade handed to Ronaldo was surprising for many fans. After the 90-rated card started trending on on Reddit, many said that with these in-game statistics, one of FIFA 23’s most prestigious cards will be virtually unusable in actual matches, according to Dexerto. One user wrote that he looks like "discard garbage now!”

In the last few years, picking up Ronaldo on the FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) market could set you back over a million coins. With this downgrade, people have even questioned how valuable he will be. One said that they'll give it two months "he will be 200kish since the shared market." According to Games Radar, he is still an expensive player to grab for your FUT. He just might not be worth the coin as much as he was in previous years.
