Would You Deliberately Get Thrown Out Of A Game To Spend Time With Your Wife; If She Looked Like This?

Posted by Mike on December 4, 2008


If I said it once, I’ll say it a million times, soccer players have the best wives/girlfriends of all professional athletes. So much so, that Rafael Van der Vaart intentionally got a penile implant his fifth yellow card so he could go to his wife’s 30th birthday party, reports Dirty Tackle. Now that’s love. Or, he just thought his wife wanted to be gang-banged by the whole Ivory Coast team and refused to miss such a family event. Which I hear the Dutch love. More from Dirty Tackle:

His former manager claims that in the 28th league game of the 2007/2008 season, Hamburg lost at home to Duisburg.

Before the match had begun, Stevens said to his assistant: “Van der Vaart will deliberately pick up a fifth yellow card. His wife is celebrating her 30th birthday and he wants to be there.”

Stevens was right. Van der Vaart kicked the ball away after the referee had blown the whistle and duly earnt a yellow card.

Three days later the team played Hertha BSC in Berlin – without superstar Rafael – where they drew 0-0. And there was one happy WAG, Sylvie van der Vaart, who got to celebrate her birthday with her husband.
