The animal kingdom had a good weekend, y’all.

Summer John kids of chelsea captain bubbas and ballersFirst, Chelsea’s John Terry, took his wife and kids to meet characters from the movie “Madagascar” at Chessington World Of Adventures in Surrey. Then, Zinedine Zidane graced France’s Disneyland Resort with his presence to launch the new Disney Dreams show as part of the theme park’s 20th anniversary celebrations.

We had an equally eventful time off starting with multiple broken mobile devices on Friday night and ending with the cancellation of several misplaced credit cards on Sunday morning.

How did the rest of the Kickette Army fare?


- Daniele De Rossi’s actress/girlfriend, Sarah Felberbaum, revealed in an interview how embarrassed she was by her father’s line of questioning upon meeting the AS Roma footballer and his teammates at a restaurant for the first time. Apparently DDR approached the father and daughter table to introduce himself, followed by Francesco Totti who identified himself as the captain, prompting Papa Felberbaum to clarify: “captain of what?”

- Once you learn of Maradona Jr’s unfortunate looks, you can never unknow it.

- Pique and his one and only Yoko celebrated their first anniversary with a semi-nekkid show for the paparazzi from their Milan hotel window.


- If you (like us) thought Aura nightclub in London had a strict “dress to impress” code of conduct for patrons, you (like us) were wrong.

- A Lyon court will decide in a few days time whether or not Karim Benzema will be forced to pay 1500 euros a month to cover the cost of living for his grandmother. Apparently Benze feels he’s being singled out by family members due to his above average footballer wages that allow him to buy matching Gucci goodies, and was initially reluctant to pay the nominal cost. Since then, however, he’s proposed an alternative solution of sharing the financial burden with all the family’s grandchildren instead.

- The Sun’s faux Arsenal fragrance based on the club’s training ground scent was our number one April Fool’s Day failure.

    I feel sorry for footballers when their own family keep running to the papers bad mouthing them if you can’t trust your own family it’s pretty sad. This aunt prob has a couple of not nearly as successful kids of her own and is jealous.

      Apparently there is more to the story and that it has been said in many French outlets that his aunt is making up most of the information. He has been paying for his grandmothers home and care since 2007.

        I really hope you're right. I always had the impression Benz is just a nice guy.
