Ex-adult film star Mia Khalifa named her three favourite players of all time, called one of her picks 'Kawhi Leonard of football'

Ex-adult film star Mia Khalifa named her three favourite players of all time, called one of her picks 'Kawhi Leonard of football'

Speaking to AFTV's Robbie Lyle, self-professed West Ham fan Mia Khalifa named a really bizarre choice among her three favourite footballers.

Former adult film star Mia Khalifa once revealed her top three players of all time and called one of her bizarre picks the “Kawhi Leonard of football.”

Khalifa, who shot to stardom after her controversial work in the adult film industry, has a vested interest in sports and previously confirmed she is a West Ham fan.

The Lebanese-American social media influencer hasn’t been shy to speak her mind on football and even named her Premier League dream team in the past.

Despite being a self-professed West Ham fan, Khalifa once made an appearance on YouTube fan channel AFTV and spoke with founder and host Robbie Lyle.

During her conversation with Lyle, the Pornhub legend was asked to name her three favourite footballers right now.

The 29-year-old ex-adult film actor flipped the question by naming her three favourite footballers of all time, with Manchester United legend David Beckham her first choice.

“I’ve got to say Becks because I’m a girl,” Khalifa said.

When asked by Lyle if her answer was based on his football skills or his looks, Khalifa continued: “For how much he makes me laugh anytime I hear him speak with that voice that’s higher than mine when I was 12.

“So that’s really fun.”

Following on from Beckham, Khalifa then went on to pick France icon Zinedine Zidane due to his infamous headbutt of Marco Materazzi in the 2006 World Cup final.

“Zinedine Zidane because that was the most exciting thing I’ve seen happen in a football match,” she said.

Khalifa added: “I love violence and I hate that there is so much flopping in football. Yes! That [the headbutt] was the greatest moment of all time.”

Joining Beckham and Zidane in Khalifa’s top three picks was -- wait for it -- none other than Celtic midfielder Aaron Mooy, who was playing for Huddersfield Town at the time.


“[Aaron Mooy] is like the Kawhi Leonard of football,” she said.

“He acts like him -- he’s kind of camera shy, he’s a little goofy but you never see it.

“I don’t know, he reminds me of him. Kawhi Leonard is a good guy.”
