'Disrespectful': Marcus Bettinelli reacts after seeing FIFA 22 rating of one his Chelsea teammates

Marcus Bettinelli believed his Chelsea colleague Mason Mount deserved a higher rating on FIFA 22.

Some of Thomas Tuchel’s squad were captured having a sneaky peek at their cards on the club’s YouTube channel over the weekend.

Reactions ranged from extremely pleased to feeling hard done by.

Make Mount’s FIFA ranking better

Mount and Bettinelli got to dissect their scores together.

The England international earned an 83 grade, whereas the back-up goalkeeper for the Blues was given a 71 mark.

“Mason Mount rated a better passer than the Croatian professor (Mateo) Kovacic. Nah nah nah, not having that EA,” said one Tweet about the young midfielder.

“Not after his pass to Rom (Lukaku) the other day,” replied Mount.

On Mount’s overall rating, Bettinelli felt his fellow countryman warranted more respect.

“83. Muggings really. Carried the whole of the England team the whole of summer. Disrespectful.”

Even Chelsea’s Player of the Year from last season had some holes to pick.

“Physical, it’s got to be higher,” Mount said.

“Physical is well above average,” Bettinelli jokingly remarked.

EA in discussion

Other members of the Blues dressing room have also had their say on FIFA matters.

Antonio Rudiger responded to his rankings on Twitter, questioning the pace awarded to him by EA.

Chelsea fans got involved in the debate, slamming the grade of Andreas Christensen.

The latest addition to the long-running franchise came out on Friday, meaning players can now put their virtual selves to the test.

If you are of a Chelsea persuasion, then the 90 rated N’Golo Kante will certainly capture the imagination.

The next highest level Chelsea are players are an 88-rated Lukaku, closely followed by the pair of 85’s in Jorginho and Thiago Silva.
