Brazilian soccer legend Kaka was the topic of a lot debate throughout his taking part in days. Now he is an icon in FIFA for the primary time, that debate continues afresh.
Yesterday, EA Sports introduced a raft of FIFA Ultimate Team icons and their scores for FIFA 20, together with the 2007 Ballon d’Or winner. Here’s the official blurb:
“An elegant attacking midfielder, Kak confirmed glimpses of his very good dribbling and passing capacity earlier than Milan fought off sturdy competitors to convey him from Brazil to Europe. Following six seasons of dazzling shows for the Italian membership throughout which he received Serie A, the UEFA Champions League, and the Ballon d’Or, Kak made the transfer to Real Madrid, offering 9 assists as Los Blancos broke the 100 level barrier within the 2011-12 LaLiga.”
And listed below are his scores:
There’s little doubt Kaka deserves icon standing in FIFA 2. But it is his scores which have sparked a vociferous debate. Kaka has an 87-rated card for his early soccer profession, an 89-rated card for his latter years, and his prime 91-rated card to replicate his time at Milan, when he was arguably one of the best participant in Europe.
The overriding feeling is EA Sports has low-balled Kaka’s scores. His prime card specifically appears low at 91. For comparability’s sake, Barcelona and Spain midfielder Pep Guardiola’s prime card is rated 90, as is Chelsea legend Michael Essien’s. Fellow Milan nice Andrea Pirlo’s prime card is rated 92.

Digging deeper and there is additionally debate about a few of Kaka’s statistics. His in-game tempo is the topic of a lot debate – as was his real-life tempo when Kaka was in his prime. The Brazilian was by no means considered a quick participant, however he was fast on the ball. Remember this?
Kaka’s prime card has 91 tempo, and most really feel it must be larger to replicate his spectacular real-world dribbling velocity, whereas acknowledging that, off the ball, he was a little bit of a slouch.
New FUT playing cards and their stats at all times spark debate among the many FIFA group, and EA Sports cannot please all people. But that hasn’t stopped a request from the FIFA group to alter Kaka’s scores earlier than FIFA 20 comes out later in September.
Please EA, repair Kaka scores and stats. from r/FIFA
Personally, I am with the FIFA group on this one. I bear in mind seeing Kaka devastate Manchester United within the Champions League just about single-handedly whereas taking part in for Milan – and he did that to most groups whereas he was in his prime.
