Most of the time UFC legend Khabib shows his interest in football. Khabib also has a passion to be a professional Footballer as his UFC career is about to end. He made history in his UFC career now if he came as a footballer then it will be a very surprising for his fans.
We recently saw that he can hit a ball pretty sweetly and also possesses a decent turn of pace.
“I’m free agent, and ready to accept offers,” the Russian tweeted in January.
Watch him showing his impressive football knowledge here…
The man knows his stuff!
During an interview, Khabib was asked to rank the Top Footballers, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in terms of their talents from the worst to the best.
As we know that he is Real Madrid’s fan so it is clear that he thinks Ronaldo7 is the world’s best Footballer.
“Well, I would place Cristiano first,” the UFC legend was quoted saying by Sportskeeda. “Cristiano is the best. Zlatan can also be called a great player in his own way. And in terms of results – Messi is the best.
“So: Cristiano, Messi, Zlatan.”
Moreover, Khabib and Ronaldo have great mutual respect for each other.
“I’ve loved football since my childhood and always dreamed of becoming a footballer,” Khabib was quoted saying by The Sun last month.
“But I was born in Dagestan and you know yourselves, what the priority is.
“Who knows, maybe if Cristiano Ronaldo was born in Dagestan, he would have also become a UFC champion.”
