Professional athletes certainly don’t have a bad life. They get to play the sport they have loved their whole life every day, they earn huge sums of money for doing so every week, they can afford the best clothes, cars and houses in the world, and they of course attract the most beautiful women on the planet. They have a lot going for them, which is a large part of why so many footballers have other halves that are stunning actresses, swimsuit models, musicians or TV personalities. This is not always the case however, as in some cases their relationship pre-dates professional soccer and any celebrity status.
You will often see these wives or girlfriends in the stands at games or in the sports pages, making them a huge part of the modern game and something that many fans take great interest in. Sometimes the drama of who is dating who will even spill over onto the pitch, such as when John Terry cheated on his wife with Wayne Bridge’s girlfriend, causing Bridge to snub his former teammate during pregame handshakes. When stories such as this emerge, it can add spice and drama to games, making it sometimes feel like you are watching a soap opera instead of a football match.
The media attention that footballers and their partners receive is enormous, with many of them practically living their lives surrounded by paparazzi and the media. Victoria Beckham (or Posh Spice if you prefer) is arguably the most famous WAG of all time, and their entire relationship has been hard to avoid over the years, including the birth and upbringing of their 4 kids.
They say that behind every successful man there is a great woman, and that certainly seems to be the case for a number of professional players. Here are the top 20 hottest wives and girlfriends of professional soccer players.
20 Alexandra Ivarsdottir (girlfriend of Gylfi Sigurdsson)
19 Montana Yorke (girlfriend of Andre Schurrle)
18 Lena Gercke (girlfriend of Sami Khedira)

2 Yolanthe Sneijder (wife of Wesley Sneijder)
1 Ann Kathrin-Brommel (girlfriend of Mario Gotze)
As this list has demonstrated, a lot of the German national team is doing quite well for themselves at the moment. Mario Gotze is one of these, as the World Cup winning midfielder not only scored the winning goal, but he is also dating the stunning super model Ann Kathrin-Brommel. She states that she does not want to be seen as a WAG and someone who is simply attached to a footballer, and instead she wants to achieve her own personal goals. Unfortunately for Ann, this helps her to top the list of wives and girlfriends.
