Eight-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt has also weighed to the endless world-renowned debate of who’s the better footballer involving Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Bolt was recently interviewed by FIFA.com through which he had been asked who involving Messi and Ronaldo have had the ideal football profession. “Both! A lot of men and women are asking this question. However, they’re just two geniuses of soccer,” Bolt said in response.
“I’ve always been a major fan of Ronaldo. I respect his ability to be successful in various championships: England, Spain, and Italy.”
The celebrity sprinter was asked who he’d be rooting for — one of Messi, Ronaldo and also Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk — at the forthcoming FIFA Greatest awards.
“These are 3 amazing players. For his part, Van Dijk has only won the UEFA trophy and given his performances in Liverpool last year, and his time could have come. However, as a supporter of Manchester United, I would vote for Ronaldo!” Bolt said.
Also, he added Ronaldo in his fantasy team of footballers for teaming up at a 4x100m relay occasion.
