In the latest FIFA 22 squad update, Manchester United’s young forward, Mason Greenwood, has received a boost to his in-game stats. Greenwood has surprised many with his strong form, having scored four goals in nine Premiere League appearances for United so far. The 20-year-old is proving to be a bright prospect, and his team isn’t the only one who’s taken notice to it! EA Sports has kept an eye on the Englishmen’s performance since the start of the season, and the plan is for his in-game player to accurately represent his elevated form.
Greenwood’s overall rating received a one point bump, going from 78 to 79. His potential rating saw the same increase, going from 89 to 90. This may not seem like a lot, but these numbers are a result of various increases in ability stats. Greenwood’s curve and volley saw a two point increase, and they now sit at 78 and 70 respectively. His positioning stat rose from 79 to 82, while his reactions stat went up by one from 77 to 78. The biggest stat bump went to his defensive awareness rating, which gained five points from 35 to 40.
The squad update also gave Greenwood a boost to his skill move rating, which means he now possesses four-star skill moves and a five-star weak foot. FIFA players will not only be more apt to playing with him, but this makes Manchester United that much more of a stacked roster. The team is already home to stars like Christiano Ronaldo, who is one of only four players on United who best Greenwood’s boost to four-star skill moves. Greenwood, however, remains the only player for his club with a five-star weak foot. Greenwood’s continued improvement spells great things for his United and FIFA players who will undoubtedly take advantage of the improved ratings.
