Football is All about Respect! One of the golden rules every player should follow during his career time is to respect not only his teammates but also the whole community. After seeing the title, some of the football fans may think we have gone beyond imagination. But there are the worst cases where players have slept around with one of their teammates’ WAGS, There are many examples of players that have broken the golden rule. Not so long ago; Chelsea star did it. Here are 6 football players who slept with a teammate’s wife.
6. Mesut Ozil – Arsenal
The German international is one of the complete footballers in the world since he joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in 2013, he has made the Premier League ever sweeter to watch thanks to his skills. But his reputation went from hero to zero when it was discovered that he had an affair with ex-Bayern Munich defender Christian Lell’s girlfriend Melanie Rickinger.
Lell alleged that the Gunners man was involved with Melanie Rickinger while he was still in a relationship with her but Ozil refused to comment on the allegations.
Mesut Ozil and Christian Lell aren’t teammates in the club level, but they have both played for the German U21 national team.
5. Thibaut Courtois – Chelsea
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is yet another player who has slept with his teammate girlfriend. Back in 2013, the Daily Mail alleged that Chelsea team-mate Thibaut Courtois had had an affair with De Bruyne’s girlfriend Caroline Lijnen.
De Bruyne was said to have been “devastated” about the affair, but had since reconciled with Courtois. Both players were owned by Chelsea at the time, although Courtois was on loan at Atletico Madrid when the affair happened. They both play for Belgium National team.
4. John Terry – Aston Villa
Aston Villa defender is considered to be one of the best central defenders of his generation. He captained Chelsea from 2004 to 2017 and had gone to become the club’s most successful captain, having won many titles including five Premier League titles and one Champions League title.
Terry gained notoriety in 2009 when he bedded the wife of England teammate Wayne Bridge. Needless to say, Bridge had apparently just ended his relationship with his wife Vanessa Perroncel when John Terry weaselled his way in. When the affair became public, a media circus ensued.
Bridge was devastated and furious. He refused to speak to John Terry ever again and to play for England in 2010. In turn, John Terry was stripped of the England armband.
3. Michael Ballack – Retired
Back in 2007, Chelsea legend was accused of having an affair with Germany teammate at the time, Christian Lell.
The former Hertha BSC defender had to say this about Michael Ballack: “Ballack enters into other people’s lives and ruins them without further thought.” Ballack was Germany’s captain at the time.
2. Jordan Ayew
Swansea striker Jordan Ayew is another player who knows one thing or two about honor. The 26-year-old may be a decent player on the pitch, but he is absolute dirtbag off the field.
Ayew reportedly had a four-year affair with the wife of one of his international team-mates, a leaked audio tape on YouTube revealed Ayew four-year affair with Ghana teammate wife Afriye Acquah’s wife, Amanda. She admitted that she had been with Jordan Ayew for four years, not four days.
“I have been with Jordan for four good years, not four days. He sent me naked pics,” Gazzetta World reports her as saying on the tape.
“He has slept with me more than Acquah,” the tape continues as she reveals that the Ghana striker “intensely humped” her for four years.
“We were mocked even then as being like ‘husband and wife’. Even Dede Ayew [Jordan’s brother] would say ‘these people, don’t discuss their issues’.
Ayew joined the Villans from French side Lorient in summer 2015 in a £8million deal, signing a five-year contract, but he couldn’t save the Midlands side from relegation to the Championship. He’s now at Swansea.
1. Mauro Icardi – Inter Milan
This might be the saddest intermarry story in football, One-time friends and former Sampdoria teammates Lopez and Icardi had a soap opera-style falling out over former model Wanda, who divorced her first husband after accusing him of cheating on her.
The Current Inter Milan captain Icardi is married to Argentine media personality Wanda Nara. Nara was married to Icardi’s former Sampdoria teammate Maxi López. She and López began divorce proceedings in December 2013. Nara and Icardi subsequently married on 27 May 2014.
Lopez and Icardi now play for different teams and have played against each other. Lopez has refused to shake Icardi’s hand during the pre-game ritual. How can anyone blame him?
