It’s common knowledge that footballs – or any professional athlete, for that matter- and cheating often go hand in hand. But often enough, their wives and girlfriends (WAGS) have also been caught with their hands in the cookie jar too…
What’s worse is that their “side-piece” happens to be a footballer too!
FIVE WAGS WHO CHEATED
Caroline Lijnen – Kevin De Bruyne, Thibaut Courtois
In 2014, the WAG admitted to cheating on Belgian footballer Kevin De Bruyne with his national teammate Thibaut Courtois.
Caroline told the publication Story Magazine of her fling: “That evening, Thibaut offered me what I had not received during a three-year relationship with Kevin.
“With Thibaut, I could talk about anything and everything, and he had even prepared me a delicious meal. Kevin never did it for me.”
Mandy Rickinger – Christian Lell, Mesut Ozil
Also in 2014, German player Christian Lell accused his national teammate of sleeping with his girlfriend after posting screenshots of their flirty messages.

Years earlier, Lell also fell prey to another cheating WAG – ex-wife Daniella Aumann.- who reportedly had an affair with Bayern Munich teammate Michael Ballack.
The footballer told Express: “Ballack enters into other people’s private lives and ruins them without further thought. But maybe when you are the German captain, that’s how you think. Ballack was reportedly married with three kids during the time of the incident.”
Wanda Nara – Maxi Lopez, Mauro Icardi
In 2013, Argentine player Maxi Lopez split from his blonde wife Wanda after she began seeing his fellow national teammate Mauro Icardi.
According to Sport Bible, Lopez and Icardi were close friends, but that changed after the affair. Wanda would marry Icardi, with whom she had two children. The couple eventually split in 2022.
