DISRESPECTED - Salah deserves to be rated amongst the very best in the world

Salah has been downgraded from a 90 OVR to an 89 OVR this year.

The Liverpool winger's pace has been reduced from 93 to 90, whilst his shooting has been given a slight +1 boost to 87.

Salah doesn't seem to have lost a yard of pace, so this one seems very strange.

World-class winger disrespected

There is absolutely no way Salah should've been downgraded for FIFA 22.

The Egyptian King scored 31 goals and provided 6 assists in 51 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions last season, after scoring 23 goals the season beforehand.

So, how on earth has he been downgraded?!

There doesn't seem to be any consistency with EA's ratings, as partner in crime, Sadio Mane, scored just 16 goals whilst providing 9 assists last season, and has been given the same 89 OVR as Salah.

Of course, the quality of player is not all down to statistics, but Mane's level has clearly dropped below Salah over the past 18 months, so why has EA not recognised this?

Salah among the very best in world football

We believe that the incredible consistency of Mo Salah should have seen him rewarded with an upgrade in FIFA 22, let alone a downgrade!

WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN - This is the FIFA 22 card that Salah deserved

A 91 OVR card would have the Liverpool legend rated alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Kevin De Bruyne, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar Jr and Jan Oblak.

Salah's impact on Liverpool over the past four seasons has been arguably greater than any of these players at their respective clubs, so the 91 OVR would have been fully deserved.
