Premier League stars fear becoming 'butt of jokes' over new FIFA 14 game ratings

London, Sept 27 (ANI): Premier League stars are reportedly worried that they will face dressing room taunts after their abilities were laid bare in the skill ratings of new edition of the football computer game, FIFA 14.

The Daily Star reports that the game experts have worked throughout the year to find out how good the players, including top names like Rio Ferdinand, Ashley Cole and Theo Walcott, are at running, dribbling, passing and scoring.

EA Sports, the creators of FIFA 14, revealed that many stars playing the PlayStation game have lamented that their computer likenesses are 'too slow' or 'pass poorly' and worry that their poor results will make them the butt of their teammates' jokes when the game launches on Friday.

A spokesman for the company said that the ratings are important as players love to play as themselves, adding that Ferdinand had even tweeted complaining about his pace statistics and that they had made him too slow. (ANI)
