Professional sports have long been associated with big money. Especially football - everything is very, very serious there. The world's highest paid footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo, makes $ 82 million a year. The richest top also includes Lionel Messi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Neymar, Gareth Bale, Wayne Rooney and Sergio Aguero. In the Russian championship, the Brazilian Hulk from Zenit has the highest fee - 7 million euros per year. Of the Russians, Aleksandr Kokorkin from Dynamo Moscow gets the most - 5 million euros a year. And there will be no less than two hundred footballers in Russia with incomes of one million dollars a year! These are the inhabitants of heaven, a joint life with whom promises to be a bright, carefree holiday.
To give birth to one of them children in a legal marriage is like drawing out a lucky ticket. But let's be honest: not every woman has the right set of data and capabilities for this role. The footballer's wife is a unique category, I close my eyes and see a certain collective image that strongly excites my imagination. Basketball players, baseball players are also married to someone, but their girlfriends do not do anything like that with the imagination of an average man (although the 8 million euros a year that baseball players "New York Yankees" and "Los Angeles Dodgers" receive are very decent money). But in the faces and figures of the wives of famous football players, there are a lot of common features. In general, they are slim, sexy blondes and brunettes. They say about such people "spectacular", although the meaning of this word is not completely clear to me.
Fate smiles only on active girls who are ready to take steps towards their football player. A successful marriage is a great vacation as long as the husband's sports career, during which you can (and should!) Indulge in your beauty and lovely family affairs. But there is also a minus - the world expects frequent victories from star players and does not forgive defeats, so his wife may well be the extreme in this unbearable psychological situation even for a strong man.
There is a serious misconception that football players spend almost all their time in training and competition. In fact, they have much more free time than representatives of many other professions. Yes, they often play matches on weekends. But on weekdays, training takes place in the morning, by lunchtime the footballer is already at home, which opens up excellent prospects for spending time together.
The players have a really cool vacation with their families. They leave for exotic islands. Or Las Vegas. Or in Miami. It is enough to study their Instagram (our favorites are @ shish49, @ berezutskiy24, @yuryzhirkov, @ tarasov23, @cristiano, @neymarjr, @kaka) to understand that an ordinary person cannot rest like that. For example, fly to a magical place in a private jet (sometimes several players drop off and fly with their families for a few days to Paris, London or Dubai). These men really value the family atmosphere very much - their own childhood, most likely, was spent in a sports camp in a paramilitary setting, and by getting married, they make up for the women's warmth, borscht and care that they missed then.
All this, given a good income, does not take away her last strength from a woman, and she is happy to have and raise children. At the same time, she completely takes control of the home space. This happens because, as a rule, famous football players are quite infantile people. Having found themselves at an early age in a famous team, they get used to the fact that they do not need to do anything except sports. Administrators and managers decide for them all the issues that arise - so that athletes show maximum results without being distracted by nonsense. Strong on the pitch, footballers are often completely helpless at home. This means that a woman can manipulate them. Football agents know this: "If you want to lure a football player to another club, start with your wife." The great Frenchman Zinedine Zidane, for example, is greatly influenced by his wife Veronica. It was she who at one time insistedthat he moved from Juventus to Real Madrid, explaining that the Turin climate does not suit her at all. The transfer cost the Spaniards a record 73.5 million euros (but the costs were compensated in a few months by the sale of club T-shirts with the name of Zidane).
And that's why they get married early - they feel lonely in a competitive professional environment, they want love and trust. Every promising young athlete instantly becomes an object of heightened interest (especially if someone wrote on the Internet what the boy's salary is now). They meet in restaurants, clubs, but this is a common scenario. Olga Berezutskaya, a former athlete herself, met CSKA defender Vasily Berezutsky through Odnoklassniki. Natalia Pakueva, the wife of CSKA defender Sergei Ignashevich, has an interesting story. She was a journalist, shot portraits about football players on NTV +. Ignashevich did not make contact for a long time, but when, finally, she managed to interview him, it turned into a relationship. Now Natalia herself is engaged in public relations for her husband, she made a beautiful official website for him www.ignashevich.com.
Inspired by the example of Victoria Beckham, the wives of football players came out of the shadows, became public figures, began to appear in magazines and pose in swimsuits for calendars. There is an unspoken competition between them, many have their own PR managers. And while many are friends - even if their husbands play in rival clubs. Natalia Pakueva, for example, is a friend of Anna Semak, the wife of Zenit football player (now coach) Sergei Semak.
