Alex Gerrard out of World Cup until Semi Finals as Wags World Cup comes under fire
Steven Gerrard has laid down the gauntlet to his wife Alex saying that she is not allowed to South Africa until the Semi Final stages of the World Cup Competition.
The England star outlined his plans to the rest of the English team before tonights friendly.
Wags World Cup don’t think he could have earned more brownie points from Capello if he tried but believe that the WAG community is reeling from this new move and are not in favor.
The Daily Mail quote – A WAG circus including Victoria Beckham and the then Coleen McLoughlin descended on the Black Forest town of Baden-Baden during the World Cup campaign four years ago in Germany and was widely criticised for upsetting England’s chances of glory.
Gerrard said at a press conference for tonight’s Egypt game at Wembley: ‘I don’t know if having the WAGs there affected our performance last time.
‘I can’t tell you that, but my wife won’t be there this time, not unless we get to the semis or the final. She’s got two kids who’ll be in school and it’s a long way away. If we get to the semis, she deserves to come and see me.’
Gerrard made his comments yesterday at a press event and following on from news that Coleen Rooney would also not be attending the World Cup.
Steven Gerrard’s wife Alex said yesterday: ‘I’ll only be in Sun City for a few days. It’s so far and I’m not into football. Steve makes me watch but I don’t understand it.’
Last week Capello made it very clear that he did not want the WAGS on mass to South Africa saying “I don’t know where they will stay, it’s not my concern. I’m hoping there will be a virus.”
It’s yet to be seen which WAGS will fly the English flag in South Africa for World Cup Wags but we’ll be there for every step reporting on their activities.
