Footballers who punched above their weight with WAGs – Peter Crouch to Suarez

Over the years, football has been full of teams and players who have punched above their weight on the pitch.

But plenty of top-flight stars have followed that mantra off the pitch too.

Yes, we're talking about when they score with a beautiful woman despite not necessarily being blessed in the looks department themselves.

Many, who it is fair to say are no oil paintings, have had serious relationships with stunning models, actresses or the 'girl next door.'

Here are some of the Premier League players who were as successful off the field as they have been on it.

Peter Crouch

The former England and Liverpool star is always good for a soundbite, none more so when asked what he would be if he wasn't a footballer.

"A virgin," was his quick-witted response.

The striker, standing at 6ft7, may think his football riches contributed to his initial tryst with stunning model Abbey Clancy.

The beautiful blonde WAG is now a media personality in her own right, winning series 11 of Strictly Come Dancing and featured on other reality TV shows.

The couple met in 2006 and married in 2011. They share children Sophia, nine, Liberty, five, Johnny, three and 19-month-old Jack.

Wayne Rooney

England's record goalscorer has been with wife Coleen since the pair were teenagers in Liverpool.

While Coleen continues to look great through the years, they have have not been so kind to former Manchester United star Wayne in the looks department.

The mum-of-four has found herself in a WAG war with Jamie Vardy's wife Rebekah in recent times, and their marriage has occasionally hit the front-page headlines.

But the couple share children Kai, 11, Klay, seven, Kit, five, and Cass, two, and look like sticking together through thick and thin.

Charlie Adam

The former Liverpool and Stoke star might be the first to admit he's not the best looking footballer to ever play the game.

Fans were shocked when a photo released last January showed Adam's rapid ageing, but that didn't stop him bagging a stunner in his younger days.

Adam met his wife Sophie-Leigh Anderson on a night out in her hometown of Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire, while he was playing for Blackpool.

The couple have a daughter, Anabella, and son Louis.

Mesut Ozil

The Premier League lost one beautiful WAG when Ozil ended his seven-and-a-half year stint at Arsenal.

Joining him at new Turkish club Fenerbahce is his wife Amine Gulse, a model and beauty queen-turned actress.

It was rumoured that Mrs Ozil played a crucial part in sealing the deal.

Amine is said to have had assurances that she will be making a programme in Turkey.

She was crowned Miss Turkey in 2014 and married Ozil in 2019. Their first child Eda was born in March 2020.

Luis Suarez

The ex-Liverpool ace possesses some of the most distinctive teeth in football.

His wife Sofia Balbi is clearly the looker in the relationship, but the pair actually met when Suarez was just 15 in Uruguay and looking to make it big as a footballer.

Sofia's family moved to Barcelona in 2003 and that is said to have focused Suarez's dedication to football so he could move to Europe and be with her.

The couple married in 2009 and have children Delfina, Benjamin and Lauti.

Roberto Firmino

It would be fair to say that Liverpool star Firmino has an interesting look to go with his interesting dress sense.

With him every step of the way is stunning Larissa Pereira, who often posts scantily-clad pictures on social media.

Firmino's Liverpool and Brazil teammate is another star who is enjoying similar success off the pitch as he has on it.

His beautiful wife Rebeca Tavares is one of his biggest supporters.

Andy van der Meyde

Van der Meyde's once promising career descended into a spiral of sex, gambling and depression.

It cost him his marriage to beautiful blonde Diana Grifhorst, the mum of his two daughters.

During his time playing in the Premier League for Everton, van der Meyde started an affair with a stripper from Liverpool named Lisa.

He said of the tryst: "I saw a brunette and I wanted to have sex. But after I'd had sex with Lisa once I was addicted, she was wild, crazy and horny.

"I said to my ex-wife that I wanted to go to a hotel because I was injured at the time and I needed some rest.

"But that was not the case – I was just cheating on her."
