Indian cricketer, Virat Kohli, and his wife Anushka Sharma, a well-known Bollywood actress, recently had the opportunity to witness the highly anticipated FA Cup Final between Manchester City and Manchester United at Wembley Stadium.
Virat and Anushka were seen cheering for Manchester City throughout the match, who eventually emerged as the winners of the grand finale.
Kohli took time out of the Indian cricket team’s training session ahead of the World Test Championship Final against Australia to attend the football match.
In a video posted by Manchester City on their official Twitter account, Kohli shared his thoughts on the experience and the electrifying atmosphere at the stadium.
“The atmosphere during India’s premier matches clashes, like with Pakistan, is similar to what fans experience during the football games here [in UK]. India versus Pakistan during a World Cup would be louder, but the passion and support of fans here is incredible to watch,” Kohli said.

Kohli also expressed his admiration for Manchester City as a team, mentioning that he follows their performances closely.
“Watching Manchester City play is a great thing because I follow the team pretty closely ever since I had a chat with Pep to understand his mindset,” he added.
Kohli delivered a memorable performance in the T20 World Cup 2022 by playing an outstanding innings against Pakistan. Scoring an unbeaten 82 runs off 53 balls, he showcased one of his finest T20 international innings to date.
