Jamie Vardy’s FIFA 16 stats have been upgraded but the Leicester City striker still isn’t happy.

The 29-year-old now has a pace rating of 92, shooting 76 and dribbling 73 - but it’s the first one that he doesn’t agree with.

There’s no doubt Vardy is rapid, but the Premier League’s current top scorer believes he should be the quickest player on the game.

“I think [the stats] should’ve been higher at the start of the season!” Vardy, speaking at the launch of the latest FIFA Ultimate Team 16 Winter Upgrades, commented.

“Your pace stat is 92 out of 99. Is 92 good enough?” EA Sports asked, to which Vardy replied: “No, I should’ve been given 99!”

Mahrez also feels he deserves better rating

Vardy’s in-form teammate Riyad Mahrez also believes that he’s still underrated in the game.

“How about you Riyad, you’ve been bumped up to a 76 rating overall any thoughts or feedback?” EA Sports asked the technically-gifted Algerian.

He replied: “I think maybe I should be 85?!”

When asked which attributes he was unhappy about, Mahrez said: “Dribbling, dribbling should be higher.”

“You have 82 out of 99 for dribbling,” EA Sports replied, “what rating do you think you should be?

“I think dribbling should be 88!” Mahrez added.

Kanté pleased with his rating

But EA Sports had no complaints from N’Golo Kanté, one of the stars of the Premier League this season, who appeared to be pretty happy with his new 77 rating.

“N’golo we’ve got your stats here as well, you’ve increased from 76 to 77 overall are you happy with that?” EA Sports asked the 24-year-old midfielder.

“Yes I’m happy, they’re good stats!” he replied.

Vardy then threw the cat among the pigeons by asking his teammate: “What about your shooting though, especially after your Watford goal?”

“Yes I scored a good goal against Watford,” Kanté suddenly remembered.

“So do you think your shooting should be higher?” EA Sports asked.

“Maybe a little, but everything is OK,” a satisfied Kanté responded. “My stats are OK.”
