Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has told Fikayo Tomori to take his FIFA ratings with a pinch of salt.
The young defender broke into the first team this season and gas been brilliant throughout. He has however fumed after discovering his pace in FIFA is less than that of his teammate Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Asked if he could provide a definitive of the answer on the issue, Lampard said: “I don’t know about clearing it up. I’m surprised at Tomori, he is fast.
“I remember FIFA cards when I was about 37 years of age and my pace was 35, so I was actually slower than my age which was really strange.
“So I take those rankings with a pinch of salt, so should Tomori. The best thing for him to do would be to show it every game he plays, which he has done so far.”
Pressed on whether he was faster than Hudson-Odoi, Lampard said: “I’m not getting involved in those arguments!”
The young defender has been rated at 80 for pace whereas his team mate CHO has been given 85 pace. Tomori is one of the faster players in the Premier League this season.
