Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, was crowned the best player in FIFA 17, which was released post his Champions League and European Championships triumphs. Rated at 94, he edged rival Lionel Messi for the honour of the best player in the game after a long period of domination by the Catalan.
While Ronaldo may be the best player in the game with his extraordinary goal scoring capabilities, it is a well-known fact that his all-around game has declined a little. The Portuguese was never a renowned passer of the ball nor a consummate team player and hence his non-goalscoring attributes have suffered a little on FIFA 17.
Ronaldo’s astronomical 94 rating is not enough to make him the best at everything in the game, not even at his club Real Madrid where he is bettered in many attributes by his teammates. Read on to find out which of Ronaldo’s teammates have better-rated attributes on FIFA 17 than the Ballon d’Or winning forward.
#1 Luka Modric
Sitting alongside Toni Kroos in the Real Madrid midfield, Luka Modric is vital in facilitating the Los Blancos dynamic attacking play. Assured and unflappable on the ball with deceptively high acceleration, the Croatian ensures that Real Madrid are always on the front foot regardless of the opposition.
On FIFA 17, Modric is justifiably one of the best midfielders in the game, with some of the best passing attributes and by far the best passer in the Real Madrid squad with a rating of 92. This high-grade passing is also complimented by the Croatians top-notch vision, which is rated at 90, allowing him to slip the BBC with passes through the narrowest of channels.
Apart from passing attributes, the Croatian is also better than his Portuguese teammate at taking free-kicks. Modric's natural flair on the ball and impeccable technique make him an ideal central midfielder, fit to play and more than hold his own alongside the best player in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo.
