Khabib is a Real fan, so perhaps it is understandable it is a former Galáctico that he ranks as the game’s No. 1

Speaking to Russian YouTuber Krasava, he said: “Well, I would place Cristiano first.

“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.”

However, it is fair to say Khabib enjoys watching Messi play. Recently, he was spotted attending the Barcelona v PSG clash in the Champions League.
