    Confused in a sentence.........

    Hi Friends!

    I'm a bit confused in a sentence. The sentence is A -The football star, I admire most, is Cristiano Ronaldo.
    B-The football star I admire most is Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Please tell me which one from the above sentences is accurate.

    The commas in the first sentence make what is in between them a non-defining relative clause. They act like brackets, so the main sentence reads : The football star is C. R. (and I admire him most). Not what you mean.

    What you really mean is that your most-admired football star is C.R. Sentence B does the job.
