Kohli Choose his Favorite Footballer
“Difficult question. However, I would say that Cristiano is the complete player I have seen. Whether it’s the left foot, right foot, speed or dribbling, it’s fantastic. I didn’t see a top scorer. (Ronaldo) The phenomenon, on the other hand, was something else.
“He revolutionized the sport, and everyone followed him. His place is special, but if I were to take only one member of my team who would give energy and intensity, it’s Cristiano,” Kohli told the Times of India.
“It’s a personal preference. Messi is an absolute and monstrous natural talent, and his abilities are unparalleled. For me, what stands out is the ability or willingness to make an effort every minute of the game. Ronaldo’s conduct separates him from all others. At the highest level, everyone has talent, but I don’t think anyone has the will they have,” he added.
In the past, Kohli has explained how he manages his diet and training. In a recent conversation, he revealed the impact of football and footballers on cricket.
“We have always admired footballers for their discipline. It’s a requirement of the sport that you need to be at your best to be able to play on the field. Footballers attach great importance to professionalism, physical preparation, nutrition, and rest periods. We learn a lot from them, “
