Here's what Virat Kohli said while comparing himself with Cristiano Ronaldo; watch
Mumbai: Team India has been a force to reckon with as Virat Kohli and his boys are currently in red-hot form after series wins over Sri Lanka (in ODI and T20) and Australia (in ODI). The team from Down Under were thumped 4-1 in the ODIs, while the T20 series finished at 1-1.
Apart from cricket, Kohli is a big fan of football. The Indian skipper will be leading the cricketer’s team in the All Stars Football match against the Bollywood team. The match between the All Stars and All Hearts will be played on October 15 and is a charitable programme to promote football as well as to collect fund for the welfare of the needy people.
Kohli, who chatted with Jatin Sapru on a show on Star Sports, was asked about his football rating and which footballer he thinks he is while playing football. The Indian cricket team skipper uttered the name of Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who is his favourite player.
“Someone asked me what would be my FIFA rating, I said 98. Not below that at all. I am good at shooting, my right foot is good, my left foot is good. As a footballer, I think I am a complete player. In my head I am Ronaldo,” said Kohli.
Kohli said that he loves to play on the left wing while playing football. “I like to play on the left wing because it allows him to sprint and provide accurate pass to the guys who score goal,” he said.
