While we know footballers and follow their exploits on the pitch, they do share their intimate and private time with their Wives and Girlfriends (WAGs).
This makes the WAGs a huge part of the lives of footballers. We don’t often have the chance to write about these WAGs but to properly mark Valentine’s Day, a day set apart to celebrate love, we write on Super Eagles stars and their WAGS.
