Have you heard of the word “Bromance” before?
Well, it is a combination of two words, “Brother” and “Romance.”
Bromance is best explained as “a non sexual relationship between two of more men”.
We have seen a lot of football duos and trios in the football world that have given us beautiful moments on the football pitch, just like we have friends in our various lives, who are making life meaningful and interesting for many of us.
This post points out 3 friendship (bromance) moments you may have missed between football duos that got us emotional.
At the end of the post, you can point out others you feel I should have mentioned in the comment box below. I might just update the post for your sake.
Lewandoski and Reus Bromance Moment.
Lewandoski, Reus, and Gotze used to be very close friends at Dortmund.
But unfortunately for Reus, his partners left the club to join fierce rivals, Bayern Munich. Although this didn’t move Reus, he pledged his loyalty to the club even after the departure of his friends.
He made it clear that he wouldn’t join Bayern Munich, not even for money.
Despite this, Reus and Lewandoski still share a very good relationship, even on the pitch while playing against each other.
The most touching moment between these two has to be the DFB-Pokal clash between Bayern and Dortmund when both players were caught on camera staring at each other and trying to be serious but couldn’t help but crack a smile.
I’ve dropped a video of the scenario below. Check it out.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo Bromance Moment.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo used to be friends together in Madrid for 9 years. During the period, they won 4 champions league trophies together, which is astonishing.
They had a relationship that was similar to Lionel Messi and Dani Alves.
Both Marcelo and Cristiano played on the left flank, and Marcelo always knew the right spot to put the ball for his partner to finish.
They made each other better, with Marcelo providing 25 assists for Cristiano during his time (equaling Di Maria’s amount of assists provided for Cristiano).
They maintained a healthy relationship off the pitch as well.
After Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure from Real Madrid, Marcelo was still rumoured to be interested in joining Cristiano both at Juventus and Manchester United.
Their most heartwarming bromance moment, which you might have missed, was their last “siuu” celebration together.
This happened during the last UCL trophy celebration at the Santiago Bernabéu. Check out the video below (and please do it with earphones to get the best experience)
Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez Bromance Moment.
These two might go down as the most beautiful partnership in football. Since Luis Suarez joined FC Barcelona in 2014, his partnership with Messi on and off the pitch has been beautiful.
Here are some points to prove it.
• Luis Suarez is the one who has assisted Lionel Messi the most, giving his partner 47 assists.
• Their children attend the same school.
• Their wives run a business together.
. They use to be neighbors at Barcelona, coming and leaving Camp Nou together
All these points are enough to prove how close they are on and off the pitch.
After Luis Suarez’s painful exit from FC Barcelona, Lionel Messi was seen taking sides with his friends against the club’s board.
Their best Bromance moment has to be when Suarez made a shocking appearance at the Ballon d’Or celebration in 2021, to present his friend with the award.
Don’t forget, this isn’t the first time he has also presented one of Messi’s golden boots to him.
