5 footballers who got married this year
Marriage, for some, might be overrated. After all, what is the point of marriage when the couples have already been living together for a while? However, to some others, it is a special bond ordained by the very Almighty itself.
‘In the name of God,’ are words that send a shrill down the spines of a lot of people. It is something that makes a relationship special—or more official—that these two beings have promised to stick together through thick and thin.
2017 has been a year where a lot of footballers bound themselves in to the holy bond of marriage. After being with their beloved for a while, they decided to take things further by adding the tag of married—and here are 5 such players…
#5 Mateo Kovacic
Mateo Kovacic has been touted as the heir to Luka Modric’s throne at Madrid and Croatia. Whenever he plays, he shows why he is rated among the very best talents in the world. His ability to see a pass even before the opponent does is something that captures the eyes of many.
His understanding of the game is imperial. The classy midfielder fell in love with Izabel Andrijanic in the Croatian village of Sesvetski and got married there earlier this year.
The duo exchanged their vows at St Antunas Church and then went on to continue their wedding celebrations at the Westin Hotel in Zagreb. After tying the knot, might have been injured, but has shown glimpses of a player who could actually be on the Ballon d’Or podium someday.
Lady luck, eh?
