Portuguese great Cristiano Ronaldo has slumped to his lowest rating on football game FIFA in 16 years, following his move to Saudi Arabian football club Al-Nassr and the recent controversies with his national team and former club, Manchester United.

Ronaldo left the English Premier League side by mutual agreement after publicly slamming manager Erik ten Hag, who dropped him from his starting eleven.

Similar bust-ups on international duty saw the Portugal captain - who is also regarded as one of the best attacking players of all time - dropped during the FIFA World Cup, with his replacement Goncalo Ramos scoring a hat-trick in the following match.

Ronaldo recently signed for Al-Nassr, one of Saudi Arabia's largest clubs, with his contract reportedly including a period where he will act as an ambassador for the country's joint bid for the 2030 FIFA World Cup with Egypt and Greece.

His new rating on FIFA 23 following an update is 88, with it last being lower than that on FIFA 07 when it was 87.

Prior to the update, the 37-year-old was rated 90 and has been consistently one of the highest-rated players on the game over the past 15 years alongside Argentinian great Lionel Messi.

Ronaldo is reported to be earning an annual salary of £160 million ($194 million/€182 million), making him the highest-paid footballer in history.
