Achraf Hakimi is angry with EA Sports after being left out of Serie A Team of the Season
This week's TOTS release on FIFA Ultimate Team was based on those who have impressed in Italy.
Inter Milan full-back Achraf Hakimi has labelled EA Sports’ decision to leave him out of Serie A’s Team of the Season as “a joke” in a scathing Twitter post.
This week’s TOTS release on FIFA Ultimate Team was based on those who have impressed in Italy.
In a side that certainly didn’t lack star quality, Romelu Lukaku, Cristiano Ronaldo and Dries Mertens featured in attacking areas, while Franck Kessié, Rodrigo De Paul and Domenico Berardi were deployed in a strong midfield.
It was the defensive side of the TOTS, however, that got people talking, including Inter’s Achraf Hakimi, who was far from pleased with being left out.
He took to Twitter on Friday evening to voice his displeasure about the decision. “What a joke!” he wrote. “If you have something against me, tell me! This is bull.”

Juventus full-back Juan Cuadrado was handed a place in the team, as was AC Milan right-back Theo Hernandez, but clearly, EA didn’t think the Moroccan international deserved a place in the team.
Hakimi, who has made 46 appearances in all competitions this season, was predicted by many to get a spot in the team.
Hakimi isn’t the only Inter Milan player to have had issues with EA Sports and FIFA when it comes to Ultimate Team. Back in September last year, striker Romelu Lukaku hit out at the company for their player ratings.
Despite scoring 34 goals in his debut campaign for the Italian club, Lukaku was given the same rating  as the previous year – a decision that sparked a strong reaction from the Belgian forward on social media.
He accused EA of messing with the ratings so “we players start complaining about the game and give them more publicity.”
And went on to complain about his pace stats. “81 pace bruh did they see my goal against Shakthar Donetsk…the f*** is wrong with them…”
