An international defender, who plays in the Premier League, has reportedly been caught sleeping with the girlfriend of his teammate, in an incident that has forced his teammate to insist on a move away from their current club.
According to the report in the Daily Star, the defender was caught by his colleague – a foreign midfielder , the tabloid claims – romping with the woman at her country home that she shared with her footballer partner.
And while they initially denied doing anything wrong, the incident led to a flare-up on the training ground, which has threatened to tear the team apart.
The Star report that the midfielder is no longer willing to train or play with the international, and will be leaving the club in the summer.
Surprisingly, the defender is still with his wife, despite the claims. But, his teammate has struggled to come to terms with the incident, and is seeing another woman, despite initially being willing to take his girlfriend back.
The incident evokes memories of the scandal involving John Terry and the former girlfriend of Wayne Bridge, which led to the Chelsea captain being stripped of the England armband.
