Players' teams are now filled to the brim with top-tier untradeable items acquired through Squad Building Challenges, for the most part.
Thanks to the tracked statistics on the FUTBIN website, we are able to see the most liked and disliked SBC cards from the FUT 23 game cycle so far.
Well, one player is by far and away the most disliked card in the game and it's fair to say you'll be shocked when you find out who it is...

Whether it's his 91 OVR Gold version or his 98 OVR TOTY card, Mbappe is always the best player on the pitch.
The POTM SBC offered a realistic opportunity for players to get their hands on a special Mbappe item, meaning users would be facing him more often than not.
This fact drove the community to hate the POTM Mbappe card as it is so incredibly difficult to have to defend against it each game.
The players who did in fact join the dark side and complete the POTM Mbappe SBC will not be complaining...
