Antonio Candreva has alternated between three and four stars for years
FIFA ratings must be hard to get right.
EA Sports spends months analysing and watching hundreds of players before assigning them ratings across a variety of attributes.
Sometimes, though, it looks like they’ve cut a few corners.
Enter Internazionale midfielder and winger Antonio Candreva.
The 80 rated Italian has alternated between three and four star-rated skill moves since FIFA 14.
Every year, he flicks between the two ratings – meaning, if this pattern continues, he’ll be in line for four stars in FIFA 19.
So, how many stars does Candreva actually deserve? Well, the consensus is that four stars may be a bit too generous.
One gamer on Reddit wrote: “3* max. That guy can’t even cross.
“That makes us, Serie A fans, realize how strong Icardi is to be one of the best 9 in the league with a moron like Candreva crossing to the other side of the field 9 out of 10 times…”
Others were quick to leap at Candreva’s defence.
“He’s been whipping some beauties in the past 5 or so matches though…,” wrote one gamer.
