Speaking on the show ‘TRS Clips’, the anchor asked the T20 and ODI World Cup winner if he is in touch with Kohli. To this Yuvraj replied, “Not really.He is busy, I don’t disturb him much.”
Yuvraj was a senior and an established player when Kohli made his debut. Yuvraj was already a T20 World Cup winner by then. On being quizzed about Kohli the youngster, the former India allrounder didn’t give a direct answer.
“Young Virat Kohli’s name was cheeku, today’s cheeku is called Virat Kohli. There is a lot of difference,” said Yuvraj.
The Indian team is often seen playing a game of football during training and Yuvraj admitted that he often had fights during the game with other players.
“I have had fights with Virat a lot of times during football, I had fights with (Ashish) Nehra, Viru (Virender Sehwag) in football. It happens,” said Yuvraj.
Is Kohli a good footballer?
“He feels so,” replied a jovial Yuvraj. “He has skills, but I have more skills than him in football. He is a brilliant batsman, I am the better footballer. He thinks he is Cristiano Ronaldo but he is not. In cricket, he is.”
