An English premier league footballer reportedly paid a huge sum of a money to a gangster to not break his legs after he slept with his wife.
The married footballer, who hasn’t been named, had jetted off to a luxury resort in Europe with a “glam, sexy lady,” according to a Mumsnet user, reports The Daily Star.
But the football star was soon confronted by the woman’s husband, who happened to be a “big European gangster”.
The man is said to have descended on the location where the footballer was staying at with a group of thugs.
According to the Mumsnet user, the gangster created “merry hell” in the hotel.
The footballer reportedly refused to leave his room over threats of violence and got his own security team in to help the situation.
The person said the footballer later paid a “six figure” sum for the situation to be “forgotten about”.
The story came about after the Mumsnet user asked people to ask questions about her life as a footballer’s wife.
The person said in a Mumsnet forum: “I’m a footballer’s wife… ask me anything?”
Her post prompted a series of questions with one person replying: "What is a scandalous story you know involving a famous footballer?"
She replied : “Hmmmm…. A married footballer was holed up in a posh European hotel with a glam sexy lady (not his wife). Sexy lady’s husband found out.
“Sexy lady’s husband happens to be big European gangster. Arrives at hotel with his goons and creates merry hell. Footballer refuses to leave room and has to ship in his own security to diffuse the situation. Oh! And apparently footballer paid six figures to gangster for the situation to be forgotten about!"
When asked if other players hit on the other player's spouses she said:
“I do know of a certain (gorgeous) lady who has caused a few arguments between players on the same national team. She held a lot of power over that team and it’s safe to say they didn’t play very well that year.”
