LeBron James Reveals Who His Five Favourite Footballers In The World Are Right Now

Basketball mega-star LeBron James has revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are amongst his five favourite footballers in the world right now.

The 35-year-old LA Lakers forward took part in an Instagram Q&A and he was asked by one fan who he enjoyed watching the most in football.

James, who is a minority owner of Liverpool, jokingly started off by saying that every player in Jurgen Klopp's squad was in his picks.

"Favourite soccer players... I got a few," he said. "First of all, every player on Liverpool. Straight up. Every player on Liverpool."

The future basketball Hall of Famer then moved on to Paris Saint-Germain superstars Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, who he branded as "legends" alongside Ronaldo.

James explained: "Mbappe, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo, those guys are legends, I love those guys. Those are just a few of them."

The former Miami Heat star also praised six-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi before revealing that his final pick was AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

James responded to a fan: "Zlatan? His crazy a**e. He crazy, but he damn good, though."

The LA Lakers star owns two per cent shares in Liverpool and has been a stakeholder at Anfield since 2011.

James has shown his strong affection towards the club on social media and congratulated the Reds on Twitter last year after they defeated Spurs 2-0 in the Champions League.

Liverpool fans also praised him back in January when he posted the club's famous 'You'll Never Walk Alone' chant on his Instagram.
