Leicester’s FIFA 16 ratings from the start of the season make for interesting reading

What a difference a season makes

Simon Lloyd

Look – we’re not knocking the makers of FIFA 16 for failing to see Leicester’s title charge. They, like everyone else in the world, simply weren’t to know.

Given that Leicester had escaped relegation by the skin of their teeth at the back end of last season, it’s hardly a surprise that the club’s players weren’t afforded much in the way of generous ratings when the latest FIFA game was launched.

Although plenty of these original ratings have since been updated, a glance back is still interesting (for the FIFA fans amongst us, at least).

Highlights include freshly-crowned PFA Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez rated at a mere 73 and Jamie Vardy at just 71. The pair are a good way off the squad’s top rated players – Robert Huth (80) and the rarely-seen Gokhan Inler (80).
