Woman claims football hubby's a cheater & beater
by Arul John

HE WAS brought to Singapore to score goals as one of the legion of foreign footballers now playing in the S-League.

But his indiscretions off the field have now landed himin trouble.

His wife has accused him of assault and wants out of their marriage.

The couple’s story, as related to The New Paper on Sunday by his wife, follows a similar stormy break-up involving another footballer recently. On 12 Jan, The New Paper reported that the wife of a local footballer had caught him cheating on her several times.

Madam Jane (not her real name) insists her story is worse.

We cannot name the couple for legal reasons. She claimed that she not only caught her husband cheating on her, he also allegedly beat her up.

She further alleged that she was hit by one of his team-mates, another foreign professional footballer.

Madam Jane has applied to the courts for a judicial separation, which is a three-year period usually ordered by the courts before a couple decides to file for divorce.

Madam Jane, who is 40, said she first met Max (not his real name) at a supermarket in Jurong West. She said that Max, who is about a head taller, helped her reach for a can of candies.

He then asked for her telephone number and later asked her out.
