FIFA 23's worst ratings: Five players who need a makeover

FIFA 23's worst ratings: Five players who need a makeover ...

After EA missed the point with the worst ratings in FIFA 23, the following five players are most deserving of a major rating boost.

FIFA 23 was slowly delivered by EA, who revealed the best players from the Serie A, LaLiga, Premier League, Ligue 1, and Bundesliga. A lot has changed in comparison to FIFA 22, with standout players getting significant upgrades.

Despite their stellar performances during the 2021/2022 season as well as at the start of the current campaign, not all players received the recognition they deserved. Ultimate Team players depend on ratings both on the pitch and to complete SBCs, making them an integral part of the mode.

As we highlight five players who merit a promotion, here are the worst FIFA 23 ratings.

A look back at the worst FIFA 22 ratings

We compiled a list of five players we believed were desperately in need of an upgrade in FIFA 23. These players started FIFA 22 as severely underrated players but blossomed into top talents throughout the year.

Let's see if EA agrees with our player picks.

Player NameFIFA 22 RatingUpgradeFIFA 23 Rating
Aaron Ramsdale 74+882
Jonathan Clauss77+380
Allan Saint-Maximin79+281
Florian Wirtz78+482

As you can see, most of the players we selected had major upgrades, which means we may see the same for the players below in the future.

To balance the list, we picked one player from each of Europe's top five leagues.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has been a total surprise for Napoli since joining the club in the current summer transfer window. The winger has been undoubtedly the early season Serie A MVP, as his dribbling and finishing have been a delight to watch.

Although he has only recently recovered from his injury, it's odd to see such a high-profile player as him in FIFA 23. Due to his excellent performances at Rubin Kazan and later Dinamo Batumi, several of Europe's top clubs were chasing his signature.

Kouadio Manu Kone

Kouadio Manu Kone is one of the Bundesliga's top young midfielders, and his FIFA 23 rating of 77 feels rather low. Borussia Monchengladbach didnt have the best season last year, but Kone was a clear bright spot.

Kone started 26 of Borussia Monchengladbach's 27 Bundesliga matches last season and he's continued to play a key role in the team with seven starts in seven games this season. Gladbach has already had a fantastic start to the new season thanks to his displays.

Jonathan Bamba

Lille was underperformed last season, similar to Gladbach, which has resulted in their most notable players being downgraded. Bamba has gone from an 80 overall rating to a 76 in FIFA 23.

Bamba scored just one Ligue 1 goal last season, but a season to forget should not negate years of hard work at the top level. This season, he appears to be a man who is determined to prove the wrongs.

Lille scored three goals and two assists in eight games, indicating that EA was too quick to hand Bamba a point in FIFA 23.

Yunus Musah

Yunus Musah will represent the United States against Russia in the World Cup in Qatar in 2021/2022. FIFA 23 ranks a dominant young player at 73.

As a young player, it's a tough league to establish your footing in LaLiga, and Musah has done precisely that. Despite his RM card, Musah mostly plays centrally for Valencia as a midfielder who isnt afraid to go forward.

Musah has been a standout player under Gennaro Gattuso in 2022, further proving that he deserves at least a Gold medal.

Moises Caicedo

Moises Caicedo received a +6 rating increase from FIFA 22 to FIFA 23, yet it still doesn't feel like enough. Caicedo is absolutely deserving of a Gold card in the Ultimate Team as his performances for Beerschot and Brighton last season were spectacular.

Caicedo isnt one to go for a goal, but he understands how to manage a midfield and dictate the pace of a match. In the early stages of the 2022/2023 season, the club miraculously occupies the fourth position in the Premier League.
