Yuvraj Singh and Kevin Pietersen are known to share a cordial relationship, and their friendly banters on social media showcase their camaraderie. It is also not a secret that the two former cricketers are die-hard football fans, but they support different clubs. While the former England captain backs Chelsea, Yuvraj is an admirer of Manchester United. On Friday, Pietersen expressed his disappointment on Twitter after Chelsea suffered a 0-2 defeat against Leicester City in Premier League 2020-21. He took a dig at media houses in England for blaming Chelsea’s manager Frank Lampard over the side’s dismal performance. Kevin Pietersen Fires Warning to Indian Cricket Team Ahead of England Tests.
“Chelsea top of the premier league a month or so ago, now media after (Frank) Lampard! Media after Ole (Gunnar Solskjaer) a few months ago and now Utd (Manchester United) top of the league, so he’s ok! Dealing with media in this country is as tough as the actual job!” the 40-year-old tweeted. While the post reflected Pietersen’s anger, Yuvraj Singh used the opportunity to take a dig at his friend. Responding to the England star’s tweet, the 2011 World Cup-winner wrote ‘R u hurting baby’ alongside a laughing emoji. Have a look!
