The Belgium international was left than impressed with his initial rating of 80 and has pressured the game makers into producing a unique upgrade

Michy Batshuayi’s trolling of EA Sports has seen the makers of FIFA 18 hand the Chelsea striker a unique 99-rated upgrade card.

The Belgium international was less than impressed to learn that he was given an initial score of 80 by the game makers ahead of the eagerly-anticipated release of their latest offering.

EA Sports responded by telling Batshuayi that they would be willing to reconsider their marks if he continued to find the target.

The 23-year-old was quick to remind them of that fact after netting a hat-trick in a 5-1 Carabao Cup victory for Chelsea over Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.

With Batshuayi clearly not about to let the issue lie, EA Sports bowed to his pressure by producing a special card just for him.

The Chelsea man quickly conceded that his upgrade had been taken too far, as he instantly became the best player on the planet.
