Kickette Catch Up: Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet

Yulia Voronin had a great time in Miami Beach this weekend. You?


Everyone’s favourite Argentine Gonzo Higuain turned twenty-three. Let’s all raise our glasses (off his shelf booty) and toast the Real Madrid striker.


-  A big congrats goes out to retired MLS player, Kyle Martino, who got engaged to girlfriend Eva Amurri over the weekend. Amurri, an actress in her own right, has a family bloodline fit for Hollywood Royalty: she’s the daughter of Susan Sarandon and Franco Amurri, granddaughter of writer Antonio Amurri, and the niece of writer Valentina Amurri. While the MLS might be a baby lamb compared to the European football lions, Martino understands how to get the top notch WAG thing done. [Credit to The Offside Rules for the story spot!]

- Three players were named finalists for the African Footballer of the Year 2010 Award: Didier Drogba (Côte d’Ivoire/Chelsea), Samuel Eto’o (Cameroon/Inter Milan) and Asamoah Gyan (Ghana/Sunderland). The winner will be announced on 20 December 2010.

- Manchester United’s Dimitar Berbatov is going to be a daddy again. His girlfriend, with whom he shares a nearly-one-year-old daughter Dea, will give birth to a son this summer. Rumour has it the couple will name the child Ivan, after Berba’s father.

- Tottenham’s Peter Crouch dismissed the notion that many footballers’ rags-to-riches stories leave them “out of touch” with fans.


- Despite her best efforts to win back her baby’s daddy, Matteo Ferrari seems to have moved on to another model, Elisabeth Maymo.

- Spanish model Melena Costa professed her adoration for boyfriend, Carles Puyol, by saying he is his hair care closet is “the best thing” that’s happened to her this year.

- Louise Redknapp admitted to checking Jamie’s text messages.

- We are always flabbergasted to discover that Ronaldinho has the ability to pull hot chicks. Are we sure these gals aren’t of the paid kind?

- Liverpool tattoo-man and fan fav Danny Agger celebrated his 26th b-day.

    I hope Ivan has his eyes <3

    I don't like the idea of reading your significant other's email/tweets/facebook posts/text messages as you are showing them that you do not trust them. I dont know this couple, but I can only assume that he cheated or she has low self-esteem, or that the relationship is more of a business (for her atleast) and she wants to make sure she does not loose him, or more like his income.

    GYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNN!!!!! or even drogba winning will be awesome!! :)

  4. @AgnesWonka says:

    yes, Berba has to reproduce…so thank you!

  5. Winnie Mata says:

    yay! happy birthday to Pipita and his shelf booty!

    p.s. i hope Aida can recover some self-respect after groveling for her ex-husband's love…ouch.
    hopefully she can save face by just moving on.

  6. zztop says:

    Hi Yulia! I've missed seeing you around!

  7. Izzie says:

    the question she was asked: What qualities of a person do you appreciate? and she responded: Sincerity, loyalty, generosity and sympathy.Physical look isn't important to me. Is it just me, or she called her boyfriend ugly? :D

  8. Puyi Fan says:

    I love my tarzan from Barcelona … & Malena well at first I didn't like her… cause in some pic … she look like she wasn't happy…& I really hope that she is not a GOLD DIGGER…. but if she is what make Carles happy then… I'm happy… BUT Puyi has suffered enough soooo I really hope he doesn't get is heart broken…. & just because she is 21 or 22 and he is 32 … doesn't mean anything …ok … cause my parents are 8 yrs apart & they have been married 30 years in 2011 … & I am 20 yrs old … & I would marry Puyi …or Xavi … or Joan Capedevila & David Beckham ( if they were single & didn't have kids) & not cause they have money… cause i would say prenup right now say I dont want money… but for the simple fact .. that they are really great people (funny.. sweet…caring..good looking almost perfect) … well thats how the come across to me…

    • Doli says:

      Who else has he dated?

    • BarceLisa says:

      agreed with everything you just said. But with quotes like the one above, I'm not holding my breath for Malena and Puyi. "Best thing to happen this year"??? Shes 21, how exciting could her life have been up to this year? no normal person in a loving relationship talks like that, not even Kate Middleton I bet. My captain needs all the lovin he can get. btw my parents celebrate their 30th next year as well, congrats in advance to yours.

      • D0li says:

        Well she is a "model" after all. BAsed on her twitter picture I'm starting to wonder what type.. it basically looks semiporno with a purfume bottle whose company i do not recognize.

        She could be using the relationship to her advantage as she needs a career bost and Puyol needs.. well what men usually need.

  9. Crackers says:

    hehehe, I didn't know Eva was a WAG- congratulations to her and Kyle! She was fantastic in Saved! (funny, brilliant movie) and I hope she'll continue acting.

    And happy birthday to Pipita, may he have a great year with lots more goals and ample showing-off of the shelf booty :) And to Danny Agger too.

    Puyol's girl….funny but I'm warming up to her. She is a bit young but a 10 year age gap is not impossible to get over when you're 22, and they seem really into each other (Puyi's goal dedication and now this). I think we should give her a chance- we did come to like Sara Pastagirl, after all, the Kickette army voted for her and all.

  10. Missy Manchester says:

    1. My peeps tell me that Miami Beach was fffreeezing this weekend. But I suppose, when you're Yulia from Siberia, any place without snow feels tropical and worthy of a bikini.

    2. DeeDee is going to win the African Footballer of the Year Award. (SIDE NOTE: How many of you have noticed that football commentators LOVE saying "the Ivorian". e.g., "Another goal from the Ivorian…Didier Drogba" or "YayaToure, the big Ivorian ".)

    3. Congrats to Dimi and Dea! A baby Berba is always good news!! :)

    4. Was Crouch sober when he said footballers aren't out of touch with fans?

    5. What Malena Costa MEANT to say was that Carlos Puyol was the best thing to happen to her BANK ACCOUNT this year.

    6. Dear Louise Redknapp…trust much??

    • xoWinnie says:

      LOL @ #5

    • D0li says:

      When did they start dating? Puyol, Cece, and Pique are following her on twitter and I think they talk. I'm not sure how serious this relationship is but I haven't seen her tweet any pictures of them together… unlike pique who'se tweeting every 5 minutes. I dont know spanish so I don't know what on earth they are saying. Can anyone translate his tweets for me?

  11. Lynz says:

    Higuain's our favourite Argentine? I thought Messi was?
    Oh, and it's a bit late but, happy birthday Danny Agger!

  12. BarceLisa says:

    -Natalie Amauri looks so much like her mother. Well done Kyle!
    -Congrats to Berba and his girlfriend Bella Swan… I mean Elena.
    -Crouchie may be an exception to the rule. Footballers are on a different planet to the general public.
    -Matteo Ferrari, why have we not heard more about this man on this website? He is beautiful.
    -Melena Costa, I hope she didn't mean that in the way we all think she meant it.
    -Good for you Louise Redknapp! more WAGs should channel their inner-Elin Woods and check their husbands phones. Hide the car keys beforehand.
    -King Ronnie I… what can I say, really?

    • BarceLisa says:

      why did I say Natalie? I meant EVA of course! I was thinking of Natalie Portman in Anywhere But Here. I love that movie.

  13. SlyMysteron says:

    @Blake, I will watch highlights just to see him dance.

    Congrats to Eva and Kyle. They’re both disgustingly adorable, she is more talented than a group of your average WAGs put together, I send happy thoughts.

    BTW, before or DURING the World Cup, Puyol was asked who would he like to have a drink with, he said my girlfriend. But the story I keep hearing, is that Puyol and Costa literally meet at the beginning of fall. Is that right?So, is he just surprisingly flakey for a 32 yr old man who is Carles Puyol? Either way, I still can't decide who is more bothersome, them or Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift.

    best natural looking body for a wag

    Asamoah Gyan to win the African Footballer of the Year, for his dancing alone.
