There is no denying to the fact that the Indian skipper Virat Kohli along with other Indian cricketers do have an obsession with the game of football. Team Indian landed in England around 10 days back and meanwhile, Virat was spotted with the Spurs skipper, Harry Kane and now the Chelsea Football club has given a special message to the Indian Cricket team, who are playing their World Cup campaign against South Africa at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.
Once talking about his love for Football, Kohli said, “Football is a sport that is loved globally and it’s great to see so many kids having an interest in football apart from cricket as well in India.” However, Kohli along with his deputy, Rohit Sharma is a supporter of Real Madrid. However, that has never come in the way of how they share a cordial relationship with Chelsea FC.
In fact, Chelsea’s star defender and former Brazilian captain David Luiz had also expressed support for the Men in Blue in a video. He referred to Kohli as ‘bro’ and also said he will see the team soon. His response was to Businessman and philanthropist Frank Khalid, who shared the video with the caption: “As you all know I love both football & cricket. I asked @DavidLuiz_4 who he was backing for the @cricketworldcup & his reply was @BCCI & captain @imVkohli. He had a special message for the captain. #ViratKohli.”
