Sanz had expressed himself along the same lines, who in addition to being the player's wife has a career as a model.


I know who my husband is, I know how I met him,

I know how respectful he is because even when he was getting to know me he disrespected me," she declared.

"I have seen many times how women approach the private room, daring, to try something with my husband in my face. If they do it in my presence, I don't want to imagine when I'm not there," she accused.
