Football is a collective game, all players from the same team work together for the benefit of their club; they build a working relationship to achieve the same goal. But in some cases, two players hit it off so fiercely, they become inseparable bosom buddies.
Inspired by Mirror’s The 11 biggest bromances in football, we have decided to look at footballers who are best friends; playing or having played together.

Bayern Munich duo David Alaba and Franck Ribery have shown how strong their relationship is. It was not once both players pictured together off the pitch, hanging out, dancing, and having fun.
4. Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi

Luis Suarez is a natural forward. He works very hard to get the double figures of goals every season. When he moved to Barcelona in 2014, he found other players hungry for success like him and the bond formed naturally.
Messi, Suarez, and Neymar were inseparable on and off the pitch. When the Brazilian joined PSG, the Argentine and Uruguayan bond became even stronger. They are very close today.
3. Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo
Ronaldo and Marcelo have built a special relationship since the arrival of the Portuguese at Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009. They always share jokes during training sessions and their celebrations on the pitch mean something big from the bottom of their hearts. We can’t stop thinking that the Brazilian might be feeling lonely at Real Madrid.
