South African cricketer AB de Villiers is one of the most exciting and celebrated cricketers, who is known for his explosive exploits by his fans in all parts of the world. He is recognized as the genius of the game for his match-winning abilities which he possesses and the Protean big-hitting batsman has the potential to change the whole complexion of the whole game in all three formats of the game.

However, the Proteas batsman was reduced into a tensing state, when he was asked to choose his favourite between the two of the world’s best Football players, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. The most difficult debate is currently for every football fan to pick out a better player between Messi and Ronaldo.

Both the leading footballers are world class sportsmen who can win matches for their respective teams almost single-handedly. Their enormous talent and abilities make it tough for the fans to chose the best football player of the two stylish performers of the game.

However, unlike the rest of the world, the South African batsman was absolutely clear on terming Barcelona’s Messi as his favourite football player. AB reckoned that Messi has always been a better performer than Ronaldo as he does not fake his way out on the field. He also praised the footballer for his high skills and for winning matches out of nowhere.

“It’s always been Messi. He is a no-nonsense player, doesn’t fake it out there. It’s all about the great skill he has and the ability to win games out of nowhere. It’s Lionel Messi,” said de Villiers on picking up Messi as his favourite, as quoted by Times Now.
