After Cristiano Ronaldo’s performance against PSG, former Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli praised the Portuguese star and slammed football analysts who have recently criticized Ronaldo.
While leading a side made up of players from Al Nassr and Al Hilal against Lionel Messi’s Paris St. Germain on Thursday, Ronaldo once again reminded the world of his talent to the football world. The highly anticipated game entertained spectators well despite Ronaldo’s team losing 5-4 as long-time rivals Messi and Ronaldo played together on the field for what may have been the last time.
“Still doing it at the highest level at 38. Now that he’s turned in this sort of performance against one of the top teams in the world, the football experts who have been sitting and criticizing him for attention every week have conveniently stopped. And it seemed like he was done,” Kohli stated in his Instagram story.
Kohli is admired by Cristiano Ronaldo, who frequently expresses his adoration for the ex-Manchester United attacker. Due to his dedication to fitness and reputation as one of the finest players of his time, many fans have even compared Kohli to the legendary Portuguese footballer.
