Manchester United fans in meltdown as Shkodran Mustafi is rated higher than Harry Maguire on FIFA 20

Manchester United fans are stunned that Shkodran Mustafi is rated higher than Harry Maguire on FIFA 20

Manchester United supporters have been sent into a frenzy after FIFA 20 released their official player ratings this week.

Barcelona icon Lionel Messi has been crowned the best footballer on the game with a score of 94, while Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo comes a close second with a rating of 94. No surprises there, right?

However, FIFAs decision to rate Shkodran Mustafi higher than the worlds most expensive defender, Harry Maguire, has raised eyebrows among many avid players of the game.

While Maguires stellar performances for Leicester last season convinced United to splash out £80million on his signature this summer, Mustafis woeful displays have had Arsenal fans begging for his departure.

Incredibly, Mustafi – with an all-round rating of 83 – scores higher than Maguire (84) in pace, shooting, passing and defending.

Perhaps United fans can take some comfort in the fact that both David De Gea (89) and Paul Pogba (88) have been rated in the top ten for their respective positions.

Those ratings for Mustafi and Maguire will take some getting over, though… (WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE)

@EASPORTSFIFA how on earth is mustafi better rated than the worlds most expensive defender? Even if you dont agree on the price of Maguire, something that we can all agree on is Maguire is a million times a better defender than Mustafi. Absolute joke

Mustafi was heavily linked with a move away from Arsenal this summer, with Unai Emery open to offers for the calamitous central defender.
