Hot US Soccer Players & WAGs of America
Note: We do NOT cater viewers looking for hot US soccer MALE players.
Major League Soccer is still a very small league as compared the to giants in Europe. But since, MLS is based in the United States, there is a lot of money to be spent but rules are put in place to stop the clubs from spending like Manchester City and Real Madrid.
Some of the biggest names of the world of soccer have ended their careers in MLS or plan to do so as it provides them a place where their high wage demands can be met and their presence in the league will improve the quality of the league. It is also a PR stunt, to be honest.
David Beckham is one of the biggest names in soccer, he plays for LA Galaxy in the MLS. Following his footsteps, Thierry Henry and Rafael Marquez landed themselves a deal with New York Red Bulls and moved from Barcelona to the MLS.
As MLS is starting to get some recognition in soccer, the overall quality of the players is improving helping the US develop better players for themselves. Landon Donovan, Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey have set the bar for their future generations and also proven their mettle in Everton, Villarreal and Fulham respectively.
Good for soccer, right? But do you know what is good for players? Soccer WAGs! That’s right!
And here are the three biggest WAGs in the USA:
Bianca Kajlich – married to Landon Donovan
Bianca Kajlich was born in March 1977 and she is an actress and have done roles in both TV and film.
Some of her famous roles were in Bring It On (2000), 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) and on TV, she was in Boston Public and Dawson’s Creek.
In December 2006, Bianca and Donovan got married and they live in Manhattan Beach, California.
Claire Merry – ex-wife of Thierry Henry
The English model met Thierry while shooting an advert for Renault in 2001, while Henry was playing for Arsenal. The two got married in 2003.
But in 2007, shortly after Henry moved to the Spanish giants Barcelona, he was accused of having an affair with a make-up artist and consequently, Claire wanted out. She did not just wanted a simple divorce. She wanted a £10 million settlement with the divorce.
That was half the money Henry had and obviously, she got it. They had a daughter together in May 2005 named her Tea (I hope it’s a French name).
Victoria Beckham – married to David Beckham
Spice Girls. Posh. David Beckham. That pretty much sums up the life of Victoria. Or does it?
Spice Girls rose to fame in the 90s and boy, were they the best girl band ever or what! Everybody liked different Spice Girls for different reasons. David Beckham like Posh for obvious reasons.
Pulling off one of the biggest stunts in PR history, the heartthrob of millions of English women and some men probably, Mr. David Beckham, married the heartthrob of millions of men world over.
They met in 1997 at a charity football match, got engaged in 1998 and married in 1999. They’ve had three children in their 11 years of marraige: Brooklyn Joseph, Romeo James and Cruz David Beckham. The Beckham’s are said to be expecting the fourth.
So yeah, I was right. That pretty much sums up the life of Victoria.
This is it. But this is not completely it. This is only it for the WAGs. We still have to look at some of the hottest US soccer athletes now.
