Soccer Players and Their High Profile Relationships

We’ve seen these men battle it out on the pitch for ninety minutes of adrenaline pumping, head butting, flying-header-out-of-nowhere-scoring soccer. They’ve made us want to break our television screens. Scream in joy. But more than anything, they’ve inspired us; inspired hope, courage, and most of all, love. But times are a-changing! No, don’t get me wrong. We still love all these players in all their spit spat glory. But there is someone else demanding more attention than they do. We’re talking about the famous WAGs. The Wives and Girlfriends of these players are now up front in the race to stardom. We loved it when David and Victoria Beckham became the ultimate power couple of soccer. And while they undoubtedly bag the number spot on the list of soccer celebrity couples, there are others who are gaining in. Ladies and Gentlemen, we present the top five couples that prove that behind all famous soccer players, there is a beautiful, talented and smoking hot WAG. Soccer Players

5. Vanessa Perroncel and Wayne Bridge. And John Terry. And possibly Adrian Mutu. And Eidur Gudjohnsen

Yep, that list just happened. Vanessa Perroncel came to our attention as the gorgeous French lingerie model who was dating English soccer player Wayne Bridge. They were blessed with a son in 2006, and we couldn’t be happier. The English WAG club could boast of yet another hot mamma in the stands. However, trouble in paradise came when reports surfaced of a possible four month affair with, none other than, Captain of the English team, John Terry. The grapevine also whispered allegations of affairs with Mutu and Gudjohnsen. Here’s the catch. All four players were signed with the same club at the time. We’re guessing Perroncel was a true Chelsea girl.

4. Sara Carbonero and Iker Casillas

She’s “The Sexiest Reporter in the World,” (hold you horses, we’re not saying this. FHM America is), and he’s the best goalkeeper of our generation. Together, they’re one of soccer’s hottest. And you don’t see us complaining. We all remember too well the final of FIFA 2010, when Iker proclaimed his love for Sara right after he led his team to victory. And frankly, we couldn’t be happier.

3. Daniella Semaan and Cesc Fabregas

Now here’s a couple that’s made its fair share of headlines. She was divorced by her millionaire husband after photos of her and Fabregas surfaced. Ever since then, this WAG has made sure she stays in the headlines. She claims she went up to Fabregas to get an autograph for her son. Others claim she gave Cesc her number. Whichever it was, they hooked up. And now, the two love birds share a daughter and have been taking vacations all over the world. And somewhere in the background, the jilted ex-husband brands Semaan a gold digger. As for us, we’re just hoping this is a case of true love, and Cesc has found his elusive “one.”

2. Irina Shayk and Cristiano Ronaldo

She’s the dark skinned Russian Victoria Secret model, the poster-child of the fashion industry. He is a Portuguese soccer super star who recently won the Ballon d’Or. Together, they’re shayk-ing up the scene (pardon the pun). Rumors have it, that Irina Shayk and Cristiano Ronaldo met on an Armani shoot, and since then they took a fancy to each other. Honestly, they both seem perfect together. She loves Louboutins, and he can afford them. She’s been the star of Sports Illustrated and he, well, he is a royalty in the sports world. And we’re just trying our best to handle the star power that’s oozing out of this couple.

1. Shakira and Gerard Pique

Now here is a couple that could truly give King and Queen Beckham a run for their money. Shakira is a music industry heavyweight. Pique is the star center-back for Barca and the Spanish national team. They met while shooting the FIFA 2010 official song and went waka-waka for each other. Since then, they’ve been one of the most talked about pair in town. With an abundance of talent and good looks (and a child as of 2013), shared between these two, they are on a one-way ticket to their happy ever after. And we have a front row seat to witness their journey.
