The bond between a player's wife and girlfriend (WAG) is unique in life and must be protected.
However, the "beautiful game" is not without controversy and super-injunctions, and many football players have succumbed to temptation at some time in their careers.
We focus on the top six historically unethical and unrespectful coworkers.
Maxi Lopez, a striker for Inter Milan, decided to kidnap his teammate's wife and their three children. Mauro Icardi has a second child with Wanda Nara, the woman he is currently married to. In the face-to-face encounter between Torino and Inter Milan, Maxi Lopez opted not to shake Mauro Icardi's hand.
Former Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois acknowledged in 2014 that in 2012, he had slept with Kevin De Bruyne's Belgian teammate's fiance. According to reports, De Bruyne was dating his girlfriend's best friend. In vengeance, Caroline Linen began an affair with Courtois, one of his teammates. However, it seems as though the two have made amends.
Fans in England will never forget Terry's romance with Vanessa Perroncel, who was Wayne Bridge's wife at the time and Terry's coworker. Wayne Bridge's refusal to shake John Terry's hand cost him the job of leading the national team.
4. Jordan Ayew
The footballer for Crystal Palace, who is known for his skill on the pitch, is accused of having a four-year relationship with the spouse of his Black Stars teammate Afriye Acquah. Ayew's four-year romance with Afriye Acquah's wife, Amanda, was made public in a leaked YouTube video.
5.Christian Lell's girlfriend Mesut Ozil
Another athlete's performance, who appears to be a strong player on the field, is disappointing. Christain Lell claimed in 2014 that Melanie and Ozil had a love relationship and that they had communicated on social media.
6. Michael Ballack
Michael Ballack is one of the greatest players in German National Team history. He participated in 98 games for Germany, scoring 42 goals. He has competed for elite teams all over the world, including Chelsea and Bayern Munich. Ballack, however, was not one of those men who effortlessly made it through life. When one of his teammates, Christian Lell, accused the strong German midfielder of having an affair with his better half, he found himself in a pickle.
You can understand the pressure this put on Ballack's marriage, which he had been in since 2008 with Simone Lambe.
