Footballers today get a lot of money and sometimes it becomes a problem to even figure out how to spend their cash at such an early age. Take for instance former Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. He was getting a kind of salary that makes him richer than any politician in the UK and beyond. We all know women tend to come together with cash and alcohol but today we are going to take a closer look at current footballers who have cheated on their wives and girlfriends in recent years.

Take a look;

6. Mesut Ozil – Arsenal

Arsenal winger Mesut Ozil has also surprising been caught in the cheating business too. The winger cheated on his girlfriend Mandy Capristo with a lady called Melanie Rickinger who happened to be the girlfriend of his German teammate Christian Lell.

Lell said the reason he separated with his girlfriend was as a result of a secret affair between her and Arsenal midfielder.

5. Wayne Rooney – Everton

Former Manchester United Captain Wayne Rooney has also been caught in the cheating mix. In 2010 a Manchester prostitute by the name Jennifer Thompson, 21, revealed the striker had been sleeping with her for four months. The lady said she charged him £1,000-a-night.

“He sent me SIM cards full of text ­messages and spoke to me on Skype using a false name. Whenever we met for sex, it was always in the same hotel.” Jennifer Thompson said.

“My life is in ruins…I’ve been so stupid. Coleen won’t forgive me this time. She will leave me.” Rooney told a friend.

The Red Devils wife who was pregnant with their first child Kai at the time forgave him and they saved their marriage.

4. Thibaut Courtois – Chelsea

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois slept with the girlfriend of Manchester City winger Kevin de Bruyne and she says there is no regret because the shot stopper was great as compared to the midfielder.

‘That evening, Thibaut offered me what I had not received during a three-year relationship with Kevin. With Thibaut, I could talk about anything and everything and he had even prepared me a delicious meal’ Caroline Lijnen declared.

3. Patrice Evra – Juventus

Marseille and former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra seemed to be enjoying time away from disciplinarian Sir Alex Ferguson because in 2015 he was caught having an extra-marital affair with French model Carla Howe.

The French left-back is a married man and therefore this story shocked many including the model who said she didn’t know he was married. She said Evra paid her the morning after in a Paris hotel.

2. John Terry – Aston Villa

Former Chelsea Captain John Terry did the unthinkable in 2010 by getting team-mate Wayne Bridge’s girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel pregnant and then helping her have an abortion.

‘After Vanessa and Wayne separated, John would go around to her house, initially at least, to offer support. Then it got a lot heavier very quickly.’ A source said.

1. Olivier Giroud – Chelsea

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud was caught red-handed having a fling with model Celia Kay at the Hotel Four Seasons in London on the night before the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace. The model posted a picture of the striker in his underwear and all hell broke loose.

‘I apologize to my wife, family and friends and my manager, team-mates and Arsenal fans,’ Giroud said later.

‘I now have to fight for my family and for my club and obtain their forgiveness. Nothing else matters at the moment.’ Giroud continued.

Let us hope his wife forgave him.
