Have you ever wondered what if football players had a love triangle of some sorts? Well today is your lucky day, as EKO HOT BLOG name some of the world’s famous footballers who have dated the same people.
Sergio Ramos/Sergio Sanchez – Elisabeth Reyes
It might seem difficult to picture Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos with someone other than his wife Pilar Rubio after they had their fourth child “Maximo Adriano” a couple of weeks ago. But the Spanish international actually dated the Spanish model Elisabeth Reyes for about nine months from 2007 to 2008.
Years later she admitted that the reason they broke up was that they were too young to be in a serious relationship. Ms. Reyes seems to have a thing for footballers and specially defenders however, as she later dated Real Racing defender Alexis Ruano, and is now married to the 34 year-old Cádiz CF defender Sergio Sánchez Ortega.
Mesut Ozil/Matteo Ferrari – Aida Yespica
As a model, actress and television personality, the Venezuelan Aída Yéspica has had her own share of fame and fortune.
But it seems like she’s had her own share of famous footballers as well, as she is known to have dated two of the well-known footballers of the modern era, Mesut Ozil and Matteo Ferrari.
The two players could be placed in the list of football stars who have dated the same women.
There are varying reports about the nature of Yespica and Ozil’s relationship however, as the Venezuelan model had once denied the existence of any kind of relationship between the two.
Yespica and Ferrari on the other hand, have solid proof of their relationship, and his name is Aron Ferrari. Yes, the two stars have a son from their relationship which lasted from 2007 to 2009. Aron was on 27 November 2008.
Cristiano Ronaldo/Sergio Ramos – Nereida Gallardo
Next in line in our list of soccer players who dated the same people, we have Ronaldo and his ex-teammate Sergio Ramos, who both were allegedly in a relationship with Nereida Gallardo.
Of course in Ramos’ case, it was nothing more than a simple fling or even a hook up as he met the beautiful lady at a nightclub in Madrid back in 2007. You might remember that before meeting his wife Pilar Rubio, Ramos used to be a bit of a playboy.
Gallardo is also said to have met Ronaldo back in 2008. The two allegedly dated for a few months and were even pictured together on vacation.
Real Madrid fans could also be thankful that neither of their legends had been in a serious relationship with this lady, as it could have made things a bit awkward between the two footballers after Ronaldo’s iconic move to the Spanish capital back in 2009.
Ryan Giggs/Jermain Defoe – Imogen Thomas
Next on our list of footballers who have dated the same woman, we have Ryan Giggs and Jermain Defoe.
The 37-year-old 2003 Miss Wales award winner Imogen Mary Thomas is a Welsh model who, back in the day in 2011, was the talk of the media for her notorious extramarital affair with the Manchester United Icon Ryan Giggs.
The news was especially interesting for the media due to the fact that Giggs had obtained a gag order to keep his identity a secret, and protect himself from further allegations as he was married to his now ex-wife Stacey Cooke.
This suppression order was to no avail as the legal order was restricted to the UK and could not extend to media outside the UK borders. Giggs, as one of the most famous Footballers of history, might have lost a few of his fans to this drama. He divorced his wife in 2017.
Thomas had also briefly dated English professional footballer and then Sunderland player Jermain Defoe who now plays for the Scottish Premiership side, Rangers F.C.
She claimed that the reason she and the now 37-year-old striker broke up was that she wanted to stay at home and relax, while Defoe liked to go out a lot and have fun outside.
