According to a report by Sky News the 37-year-old footballer's score in the popular video game has dropped to 88, despite starting the season ranked as 90-star rated.

Following a tumultuous first half of the season, which saw the Portuguese international footballer leave Manchester United and sign for Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr, the drop in the ranking marks the first time in a decade that the player has slipped below 90, after being ranked at 89 in FIFA 11.

According to SKY News: “FIFA 23 is the final game in the series, with EA Sports working on its own series after announcing a dramatic split from football's governing body after almost 30 years. The developer's new franchise will be called EA Sports FC, while FIFA has said it will work with other publishers, studios, and investors on future titles”.
