What do you get for the man who has everything? Well if I was Cristiano Ronaldo and had the stunningly gorgeous Irina Shayk to go home to at night, I would think I had died and gone to heaven. But the Real Madrid and Portugal star could soon have the prestigious honour of being voted the best footballer in the world at the Ballon D’Or ceremony.
As England have qualified for the World Cup, only one question remains: will the WAGs be in Brazil with them? The 2006 World Cup saw nearly of the England players’ wives join up with them in Germany – to the delight of the press – but, in 2010, Fabio Capello banned them from South Africa.
However, it looks likely that the WAGs will be with the team in Brazil, so we will quickly give you a rundown on the important ones.
If you really want to be a WAG – you’d better find yourself a famous footballer and bag him quickly.
Unfortunately, life isn’t that simple – but you can live the WAG lifestyle with relative ease if you know how to go about things properly. And West Cheshire College in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire (a county famous for the number of WAGS it is home to) can help show you how it’s done.
A course at the college helps students to learn how to achieve the much sought-after WAG look, made famous by the wives of England footballers all those years ago during the World Cup (you can bet on England’s upcoming games with Paddy Power).
When Liverpool FC signed the Belgium international keeper Simon Mignolet from Sunderland this summer, it meant that previous first choice stopper Pepe Reina decided to move to Napoli to join former Reds boss Pepe Reina on loan for the season. That left the 31-year old Australian keeper Brad Jones still as the number two between the sticks. Brad will have been hoping to see more playing opportunities, but the new man’s performances have been excellent, so Brad may have to just see Liverpool play from the sidelines.
Welcome to Arsenal Mesut Ozil, and welcome to London Mandy Capristo. The deadline day signing of the hugely talented Germany international has really set tongues wagging among the world of football, and this picture shows that his girlfriend could soon be the talk of the town as well.
23-year old Mandy Capristo was born in Mannheim, Germany and she is a celebrity in her own right. Mandy has worked as a model and dancer as well as her current main interest, singing. She writes songs as well as performing them and released her first solo songle and album last year.
This was supposedly to be the year that football tightened its belts and began to spend more responsibly, yet the clubs clearly weren’t listening. More money than ever was been spent this transfer window, close to £600million in fact, with plenty of WAGs on the move with their players too.
Emma Rhys Jones can finally set about spending some of Gareth Bale’s £300,000 a week wages at Real Madrid. The transfer saga dragged on all summer and bored us all to tears, not helped by Sky Sports News’ tedious coverage of the transfer, but he has finally become the world’s most expensive player. Apart from in Spain, that is, where Real claim the transfer fee is less than Ronaldo’s record of £80million in order to keep the Portuguese bighead happy – seriously.
The WAGS were out at Wimbledon last weekend as the sporting world and especially those who bet on Andy Murray watched in amazement as first Victoria Beckham entered the Royal Box and then as Murray won the Grand Slam title.
Murray’s performance on court was simply astonishing and maybe players of the England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland national teams could do with watching his dedication, commitment and attitude if they ever want to achieve success on the international stage. We can all stand up and applaud Murray’s success but tennis betting fans are likely to have watched with keen envy.
The Arsenal captain and Belgium international has certainly not had a good season with the Gunners. Some costly errors and poor performances eventually led to him being dropped by the manager Arsene Wenger. To compound matters, for him personally anyway, his replacement Laurent Koscielny then went on to form a rock solid partnership with Per Mertesacker at the centre of the Gunners defence.
His being dropped does not seem to bother the Spanish champions Barcelona, though, because they have been continually linked with a transfer move for Vermaelen, although the sports betting websites do not really think the odds are very strong for it to happen. Perhaps they have seen photos of his girlfriend Polly Parsons, because the chances of anybody deciding to move away from such a gorgeous girl are pretty slim.
Bayern Munich may have signalled a change in world football. Their 4-0 demolition of Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final has got many football journalists suggesting that this could signal an end to the dominance of the tiki-taka style that has done so well for Barcelona and the Spain national team in recent years.
The man who scored the first and the last of Bayern’s four goals, Thomas Muller, had more reasons than most to smile. He really has got things going for him, judging by this picture of his gorgeous wife Lisa who he married three years ago after seeing her for two years.
Some guys have all the luck, according to Rod Stewart, and the England and Manchester United midfielder certainly seems to be one of them, as this picture of his stunning girlfriend Georgina Dorsett proves. The 27-year old property developer announced in December that she was pregnant with the couple’s first child which is due later this year.
Georgina used to be on the `reality` TV show the Only Way is Essex, but has given it up and will soon be too busy with the patter of tiny feet anyway. Cleverley has had a great season with united, scoring four goals and helping his team mates to regain the Premier League title which only a miracle will stop them from winning.
