Fergie admitted to Khabib that Cristiano Ronaldo should have started against the Toffees after current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rested him.

The MMA hero is friends with the Portuguese and jokingly threatened to ‘choke out’ any Everton player who tried to get the icon’s No. 7 shirt.

Fergie offered a glass of wine to the former lightweight UFC champion – who is Teetotal – but he respectfully declined.

Speaking about football in 2019, Khabib told BT Sport: “The English Premier League, for me, is the best league in the world. I follow everything.

“I’m a big fan of Real Madrid. But I love the English Premier League, even if the worst teams are playing, they have the best games.”
