Football requires chemistry between the players for a team to function as a whole. Overall, the team needs to be in sync with each other, so much so that they can predict where the other will be, even without seeing. If not the whole team, there certainly are quite a number of footballers who hit it off so well with each other that they became the best of pals; not just on the field, but off it too! Here is a list of the top 10 moments of football bromance in the game, which might let you sigh out a very manly awww!
10. David Alaba and Franck Ribery
Franck Ribery, 32, and David Alaba, 23, don’t have a lot in common on the field. But this duo has an amazing chemistry off it. They first met while playing for the Bavarian club, joining in 2008 and 2007 respectively. It was Ribery who gave Alaba the ‘Austrian Sportsman of the Year’ award.
It is also said that Ribery had a major role to play in the development of the young Alaba, who has now become one of the best in the world in his position. But their relationship grew from a mentor-pupil one to that of pure friendship over time.
