Happy Birthday Virat Kohli: Premier League stars wish the legend
Indian skipper Virat Kohli is having a famed career in cricket and is already a legend and a future Hall of Famer. As he turned 31 on Tuesday, wishes poured in from across the cricketing fraternity. However, the wishes were not just restricted to cricket, as global footballers too wished the legend, including a number of stars from the Premier League.
As for footballers wishing Kohli on his birthday, the Premier League Twitter handle of India posted a video. In the video, players like Marcos Rojo (Manchester United), Sadio Mane (Liverpool), Bernardo Silva (Manchester City) and Marcos Alonso (Chelsea) and many more wished the legend.
Kohli might have found tremendous success as a cricketer. However, he considers football as his second favorite sport. He is also a co-owner of FC Goa in the Indian Super League (ISL). Upon owing the team, Kohli had said, "It's a business venture for me for the future. Cricket's not going to last forever and I'm keeping all my options open after retirement."
As for Kohli's birthday celebration, he is currently vacationing with his wife, Anushka Sharma, in Bhutan. His wife posted a few pictures on Twitter, describing their vacation, where she wrote, "So we went into the home of this beautiful and warm family who had absolutely no idea who we were and yet they treated us with such warmth and love."
So we went into the home of this beautiful and warm family who had absolutely no idea who we were and yet they treated us with such warmth and love. We spent some time with them chatting and drinking tea and the whole time they just know us as two tired trekkers !— Anushka Sharma (@AnushkaSharma) November 4, 2019
"What a blessing to be able to visit such divine places with my soulmate. Also, thank you, everyone, for your kind wishes from the bottom of my heart," said Kohli on Twitter.
