John Cena Reveals His Favorite Soccer Player


WWE Superstar John Cena recently did an interview with a BBC talk show and talked about a variety of topics. Association football (soccer) expert Mark Lawrenson asked “The Leader Of The Cenation” who his favorite soccer player was. Cena named the only professional footballer he knows, Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo:

“If I had to name some famous footballers, I would start and end with Cristiano Ronaldo. That’s it.”

Cena noted that when he worked a WWE live event in London he was able to visit the Spurs stadium and walked on the pitch. When asked which position he’d like to play if he was a soccer player, Cena claimed he’d like to remain on the bench because he isn’t much of a runner:

“If I were to play myself, I would be on the bench because I have watched a few games, and it is a lot of running – I don’t run very well, or very far. I think being an inspirational coach might be my best role.“
