Football is a sport that is strongly linked with WAGs and glamour, so it is understandable that our star footballers occasionally cross the line, forgetting that they are committed or probably married.
Things like this happen in everyday life, as well as in the football world. Check out these top-tier players who have cheated on their partners.
Former Bayern Munich defender Christian Lell accused the Arsenal playmaker of having an affair with his girlfriend Melanie Rickinger.

The Frenchman has been married since 2011, but he couldn’t resist the charm of model Celia Kay.

During his time at Manchester United, the Juventus man was caught cheating on his wife with Playboy model Carla Howe.
Evra, according to Howe, left out a minor detail during months of chatting: he was married and had a 6-year-old son.
The Bayern Munich winger has been a phenomenal player over the last decade, but that didn’t stop him from hiring Zahia Dehar, an underage escort.

Despite the fact that the trio were not prosecuted, Zahia Dehar claimed that the football stars were unaware of their true age.
Chelsea star Ashley Cole and his then-wife Cheryl Cole were once one of the UK’s most popular couples, but that all changed in 2008 when it was revealed that Ashley had cheated on his wife 3 times.

Cole had a successful career after that, but he lost the respect of many fans and became a despised figure in England.
When news broke that he had impregnated former England teammate Wayne Bridge’s ex Vanessa Perroncel, the former England captain became deeply involved in one of the most controversial abuse scandals of all time.

The Chelsea captain was also stripped of his national team captaincy.
The England striker has been in the news for his visits to massage parlors since his time at Everton, and he was caught on cctv during a visit to a local brothel.
