Bayern Munich names Virat Kohli and Manuel Neuer as cross-sports equivalents to each other

If one really wants to draw similarities between the two legends, there are quite a few. For starters, the Indian batter is a world champion (with India in 2011) and so is Manuel Neuer (with Germany in 2014).

Manuel Neuer and Virat Kohli are two names one will not generally utter in a single breath. Although both are legends in their own field, their fields are as far from each other as the Indian cricket team are from ICC trophies. However, Bayern Munich on Sunday named Manuel Neuer and Virat Kohli in a tweet that has got the both the cricketing and footballing worlds talking.

Sanjay Manjrekar feels India is missing Virat Kohli and the energy he brings in the India vs England 4th Test in Ranchi.

If one really wants to draw similarities between the two legends, there are quite a few. For starters, the Indian batter is a world champion (with India in 2011) and so is Manuel Neuer (with Germany in 2014). Both are greatly valued in their respective teams, both have reinvented the game and both are continuing to set examples even at an age where other athletes think about hanging up their boots.

So it is no surprise that Bayern Munich decided to name the two legends of the game in their post. But what is the context?

Bayern Munich’s comments came in response to a tweet by an individual who asked people to name 2 athletes from different sports who are cross-sports equivalents to each other.

Bayern Munich retweeted the tweet, and named Virat Kohli and Manuel Neuer with ‘GOAT’ signs beside both the names. We, for one, couldn’t agree more, can we?
