When you mention soccer players’ one name always pops up: David Beckham. Perhaps the most famous pair in soccer is that of David Beckham and his wife Posh Spice (Victoria Beckham). Victoria Beckham was a diva in her own right singing with the British group The Spice Girls and has become even more posh and successful as the wife of the king of soccer. But there must be more famous pairs than that, right? Perhaps famous soccer players and their wives are not very well known because here in America football is football and not soccer. However with the World Cup in full swing it is time we knew more. David Beckham and Posh are number one on the list of famous soccer player’s wives, but who else makes the cut?
Famous Soccer Player Wives: Magnus Hedman and Magdalena Graf: Hedman is a goalie for one of the Scandinavian teams but his wife Playboy playmate Magdalena Graf is perhaps better known even in their home country. Off the field Magdalena is the one to look at but watch out when Magnus gets near the goal; it’s on!
Famous Soccer Player Wives: Fabian Barthez and Linda Evangelista: Show a picture of Linda Evangelista to anyone and they can tell you she is a model. Show a picture of Barthez to a crowd and unless you are in a sports pub you will be hard pressed for someone to identify him as the United goal keeper. This couple was hot and heavy for some time although now has called it quits.
Famous Soccer Player Wives: Luis Figo and Helene Figo: This soccer player from Madrid is famous for being a sweaty mess but his beautiful wife stands tall as she models with Elite. Helene Figo is also known as Helene Svedin and will stand by her man whether he plays for FC Barcelona or side by side with David Beckham.
Famous Soccer Player Wives: Ronaldo and Daniela Cicarelli: Though the marriage was very quick famous soccer player Ronaldo was married to MTV VJ and model Daniela Cicarelli. Perhaps it was his stint as a character on the Simpson’s or his amazing ability on the field but Ronaldo has always been surrounded by beautiful women whether or not they are other soccer players, models or actresses.
Famous Soccer Player Wives: Zinedine Zidane and Veronique Zidane: This midfielder from France is perhaps the best soccer player in the world when it comes to technical skill. The Zidane couple is just as beautiful as the Beckham couple as Veronique Zidane is a dancer and model who could grace as many covers as Posh.
Famous Soccer Player Wives: Edson Arantes do Nascimento and Assiria Seixas Lemos: Edson Arantes do Nascimento better known as soccer legend Pele married his long time friend and gospel singer Assiria Seixas Lemos in 1994. Pele is no longer kicking the ball on the field but he is still a huge part of soccer history.
Famous Soccer Player Wives: Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite and Caroline Celico: This Brazilian midfielder is better known by his nickname Kaka plays for Real Madrid CF. Caroline Celico is very much like the famous in America often seen on TMZ and the likes of the many New York socialites who are famous for being famous. The two are very religious and very much into giving back to the community.
Famous Soccer Player Wives: Raul Gonzalez and Mamen Sanz: This striker for Real Madrid has a striking model wife Mamen Sanz. The couple met years before they were married when they were both just starting out. Now with a beautiful family of five the pair are rumored to be moving to New York so that Raul can go from Real Madrid to the Red Bull team and perhaps we will then see Mamen Sanz as a Real Housewife.
Famous Soccer Player Wives: Ashley Cole and Cheryl Tweedy: One of the best left backers from the games this year had one of the most famous wives in attendance. Ashley Cole plays for Chelsea and the English National Team and until earlier this year was married to singer Cheryl Tweedy. Tweedy came into popularity with her strong vocals as part of the UK singing group, “Girls Aloud.”
