Wives and girlfriends of football stars have always been the rave in the midst of the physical side of the game; they project the soothing side of the stars as they flaunt their beauty alongside the superstars, that endears the fans of the game to their favorite stars.
Most footballers usually go for models and public figures to enhance their imagery, although the stars are sometimes eclipsed by their partners with their beauty and elegance while their men spend most of their time on the pitch, focusing on their exercises and drills rather than having a cosy appearance although the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos among others have always stole the spotlight due to their appearances; their spouses pay considerable time on their looks in a bid to fit the bill as a 'WAG'.
The ‘stylish’ footballers have gone on to become super models alongside their partners with the likes of David Beckham, Gerard Pique and so on donning the front page of international magazines due to their physical appeal and respect they command.
However, the stars that do not own a niche for fashion have been sometime outshined by their spouses, and that fact has sparked reactions from some quarters who suggest that the luxury lifestyle of soccer stars have endeared them to their spouses and could claim some WAGs are only drawn to the stars due to their affluent lifestyle they live. But this might not be the case of a few stars because no one can be certain of the reason for respective football stars’ choice of partners.
15 Ludivine Kadri Sagna (Bacary Sagna)
The French beauty has been married to the former Arsenal defender since 2010, and has glowed alongside the left-back. The 28-year-old has also shown she is a football fan and has spotted on several occasions at match venues supporting her husband.
Although, Sagna may not make the list for the finest stars in the game but his wife will always top the list when we mention the most beautiful WAGs and has continued to show off different snaps of her family on social media. She has a clothing line for kids and has also modelled for top brands.
Sagna will hope to help Manchester City turn around their season which looks to be in tatters. However Man City's season plays out, he has a beautiful woman waiting for him at home.

Brommel was quoted as saying: “Someone whose purpose in life it is to be the wife of someone, I cannot understand,” she admitted. “Although I am also the girlfriend of Mario Gotze, I have my own personal goals I want to achieve. Otherwise I could not be more happy.”
Gotze‘s form on the pitch has also increased following his return to Borussia Dortmund after his unsuccessful spell at Bayern Munich.
13 Raquel Mauri (Ivan Rakitic)
The Barcelona star got married to a pretty lady he met while trying to thrash out a deal with his former side, Sevilla.
The midfielder recalled how he chased her during his early days with Sevilla and even likened himself to 'George Cloney'. The pair initially got married in 2013 in a civil ceremony and then again exchanged vows in 2015. Raquel happens to come from a football loving family too and has always shown absolute support for her husband.
The Barcelona midfielder has been impressive since he joined from Sevilla, helping them to several victories but has not seen his chances reduce under Luis Enirque this season due to the arrival of Denis Suarez and Andre Gomes at the Camp Nou. There are reports that the Croatian might move to Manchester City.
12 Abbey Clancy (Peter Crouch)
The lanky striker may not be a massive hit on the pitch but we can surely say he made a hit with his stunning wife, Abbey Clancy who keeps making the headlines with her profile as a lingerie and catwalk model and television presenter.

10 Ana Ivanovic (Bastian Schweinsteiger)
The retired tennis star used to be a wonder to watch during her days on the court, which was cut short by her inability to continue on the high stage but much can be said about her short illustrious career, carting major laurels despite intense competition from the likes of Maria Sharapova and the Williams sisters. She got engaged with the German star in 2014 and got married after two years of dating.
Ivanovic has also tried her hands in several other ventures such as featuring on Video games as well as some international magazine. She has endeared herself to the world around her due to beautiful appearances.

5 Sara Carbonero (Iker Casillas)
The Spanish journalist got married to the goalkeeping legend in 2016 and has two children with the Real Madrid legend. Having been in a relationship with him since 2009, she was accused of distracting Casillas during Spain's loss to Switzerland at the 2010 FIFA World Cup after it emerged that Sara and her crew were less than 60 feet from the goal. We have a feeling Iker didn't mind. The sports journalist further flared the controversy when she interviewed him after the game. Carbonero was voted as 'The Sexiest Reporter in the World' by FHM in 2009.
Casillas currently plays for Portuguese giants, Porto following an illustrious career with Real Madrid where he won several laurels and even captained Spain to win the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The stunning Ukrainian beauty has been with her husband since 2013. She graced the cover of the Glamour Poland magazine and has won several awards, having tried her hand in acting.
The Polish keeper excelled during his young days and went on to keep in between the sticks for Arsenal but his form began to deteriorate which led to his eventual loan deal to Roma and he has been impressive in the Serie A. He has since then claimed Gunners boss Arsene Wenger ‘wants him back’.
2 Majda Sakho (Mamadou Sakho)
Though he may not be having the best of time on the pitch, Mamadou Sakho has certainly done well for himself off the pitch with his stunning beautiful wife, Majda. Sakho has done well to keep his beautiful wife by his side who is a stunner anytime. The Liverpool striker has two daughters.
The French defender has failed to make the starting line-up for Liverpool after falling out of favor with Jurgen Klopp during their preseason tour in the United States of America. He has since played with the reserves which sparked speculation linking him to a several clubs in Europe.
Despite being out of the first team, Klopp fans still love Sakho due to his friendliness to the Anfield faithful, although it appears his days are numbered in the Mersey side.

Asides being a surprise champion in the Premier League, the English striker also stunned folks when he landed a spouse like Becky. The mother of three is woman of many tales, one of which is that her mum did not attend her wedding with the Leicester City star due to their strained relationship as a result of her being abused by a family friend for three years. She further revealed that her experience of being abused while growing up as had a toll on her.
