New Delhi: At 25, Virat Kohli co-owns an ISL football team and the young Indian batsman says his passion for the sport along with future planning influenced his decision to invest in FC Goa.

Former cricket stars Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar along with Bollywood personalities such as John Abraham and Abhishek Bachhan also co-own different teams in the much-hyped league, beginning next month.

"Some might think I am pretty young to do something like this or it is a step taken too early but nothing is never too early. If you believe in something, you have to put your 100 per cent commitment to it and I decided to do it because I want football to grow in India," Kohli said defending his move.
