'No saints' Man U, Chelsea stars among 40 married footballers seeking discreet affairs
Married footballers from top English clubs like Manchester United and Liverpool are among 40 wedded footballers, who have signed up with a dating website for married people seeking extra-marital affairs. UndercoverLovers.com has claimed that a dozen top-flight players, 19 from the Championship, eight from League One and five League Two are among the members who have registered on the site since January last year, the Daily Mail reports.
The website claims to be the UK's foremost extra-marital dating agency with more than 695,000 members, which represents almost two per cent of the UK's entire married population, the paper said.
Website's spokesperson Emily Pope said there hasn't been an unfaithful footballer expose in the tabloids for more than a year, but that doesn't mean they have all become saints, and she added they have identified 44 professionals from the Premier League and Football League who've joined Undercover Lovers in the last year alone.
Pope also said they guarantee their members' anonymity so of course they can't name names, however they can reveal that at least one player on the books of Premier League leaders Manchester United and one from Chelsea are members of UndercoverLovers.com.
Pope added the most active professional footballer on the site plies his trade for a South Coast club and h is certainly no saint.
