Many believe AB de Villiers in currently the best cricketer in the world. Some fans even fondly love to call him the Leo Messi of Cricket. But does he like this nick name, or he is a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo instead? Finally he has clarified the issue, saying that he is really a supporter of Argentina and Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
This happened during a twitter interaction with fans on ICC’s twitter page, where #AskAB was trending for quite a while. A fan asked the South Africa cricket ODI captain who his favourite footballer is – Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. The famously multi-talented cricketer’s response, was ever, direct and straightforward –
“Alright, very easy question for me – my favourite player between Ronaldo and Messi? It’s always been Messi. I just feel that he’s a no-nonsense kind of player, doesn’t fake it out there, is all about his great skill that he has and ability to win games out of nowhere… it’s Lionel Messi”
Here is the video of AB de Villiers admitting his love for Messi.
