Top 5 Hottest African footballers’ Wives


Behind every great footballer, there’s a successful WAG (wife and girlfriend, don’t you know). If you’re scoring on the pitch, then you want to be scoring at home too.

And African WAGs are doing much more than manicures and retail therapy; they’re setting up charities, pursuing careers and looking after children that must be genetically blessed with both talent and looks!

So time for a shout out to the ladies: we count down the women who we admire for their brains, beauty and their boyfriends.

The former Chelsea player and the Malian Diakité met in Paris in 1999. After 12 years of being together the couple wed.
