It is hard to separate sports and emotion, especially when it comes to the fans. When a player does well they get praised but when things go pair-shaped they get criticised harshly.
When that happens if good to have someone that has got your back and that is what makes these football bromances so important.
Like many sports the friendships that are made on the field grow into something much more and they become friends for life.
Briefly.co.za put together this list of footballs best bromances with the help of the dailysun.co.za.
George Lebese and Keagan Buchanan
Despite playing for rival clubs these two midfielders share a great friendship and they have a ball on and off the field.
Teko Modise and Vincent Kobola
This Cape Town City pair spend a lot of time on the pitch and even more off. The two became besties right off the bat and makes their bromance very touching.
Bongani Zungu and Keagan Dolly
These two have been inseperable ever since they played together for the Tshwane giants Mamelodi Sundowns. The two midfielders were reunited when they moved to France to ply their trade.
George Maluleke and Itumeleng Khune
They make an unlikely couple with one being a goalkeeper and the other a midfielder but these two are thick as thieves. Their strong friendship is strengthened by the fact that they both play for Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs.
Ryan Moon and Brylon Petersen
The two friends are both trying to get their stripes for the Kaizer Chiefs senior team. Ryan has gotten the nod but Brylon has his work cut out for him as goalkeeper.
