TOP SOCCER STAR’S SEX SCANDAL
A premiership soccer star who had a sleazy affair behind his girlfriend’s back has stopped The People exposing his shame.
In the week that rape claims at a Man United party rocked the game, a top player took legal action to stop us naming him over his secret fling with Francesca Sawyer.
The ace cynically lied to his longtime girlfriend and mother of his child to cover up his seven-month affair with blonde secretary Francesca, 22.
The well-known international player told his loyal partner lies including he was having physio – when he was really enjoying weekly two-hour romps. The People aimed to name and shame the “respectable” family man who seduced Francesca by pretending to be a male stripper.
But in a blatant bid to hide his infidelity and protect his image the cheating star hired top lawyers to gag us.
Now club bosses, friends and millions of fans cannot be told who the rat is.
But the gag will not stop us publishing details of his devious behaviour.
A cheating Premiership star posed as a stripper called Wesley to bed a secretary behind his partner’s back.
The international player was so scared of being caught playing away with sexy Francesca Sawyer, that he…
Pretended he was a stripper before reluctantly admitting after sex he was a fans’ favourite.
Used his partner’s car so he wouldn’t be spotted arriving for weekly romps in his easily – recognised supercar.
Insisted on getting drunk on vodka so he would have “an excuse” for being unfaithful.
Ordered Francesca to check his naked body and clothes for her tell-tale blonde hairs before he left.
Deleted saucy phone snaps of her after he sent one of his manhood.
Told his partner lies about where he was when he was really cheating.
Francesca, 22, who had a seven-month fling with the star – who we cannot name for legal reasons – told The People: “When I met him he told me he was single and a stripper called Wesley.
“It was only after we slept together that he confessed he was a soccer player earning tens of thousands every week with a partner and child.
“The sex was amazing but he was over-the-top paranoid about getting busted and racked with guilt after every sex session we had.
“It didn’t stop him coming back though.”
Francesca, a PA for a real estate company, met the player earlier this year in the trendy Amika club in Kensington, west London, where her former boyfriend worked.
She said: “He told me his name was Wesley, that he was single and worked as a personal trainer and stripper.”
The pair flirted so much that Francesca’s fella ordered him out. But the star, who has a long-term partner, tracked down Francesca’s number from a friend.
Next day he began bombarding her with saucy texts.
She said: “He wanted pictures of me in black underwear.
I’d pose in my room and send them. But he’d delete them straight away and then ask me for them again later – he didn’t want his partner finding out.
“I got naked pictures of him too – one of his manhood and another of himself standing in front of the bathroom mirror.”
After a month of phone contact the pair met at a pal’s flat in London’s Royal Docks – and their first date turned into a five-hour sex session.
Francesca recalled: “I was asking him questions about his personal life and I noticed that he’d often pause for ages as if he was thinking up a lie.
“He told me he felt trapped with his partner.
“I made the first move because it had got to 4am and he was so shy I thought he’d never get around to it.
“We were on his mate’s bed.
I started kissing him and he was immediately aroused.
“His body was amazing. He’s totally lean, muscles seem to pop out of everywhere, and he was really strong. He was nearperfect in bed.We were having sex until 9am in all sorts of different positions and he was throwing me around the bed.
“He likes to be scratched and bitten a lot so as we had sex I dug my nails into his back and shoulders.
“I wasn’t so keen on his swearing though. He must have been getting turned on but I found it strange.”
After sleeping with Francesca for the first time the player came clean about his true identity. Francesca said: “I was a bit cheesed off.” A year before she had dated Wigan Athletic defender Titus Bramble and after three dates discovered he was seeing other women. “I was angry with the star,” she said.
“I asked him why he’d lied and he said he wanted a girl who liked him for him and not because he is a footballer.”
Francesca chose not to show the player the red card.
A week later she met him again – this time at her friend’s flat in the City of London.
She said: “He had a half hour physio appointment but told his partner it was two hours. He was so worried photographers would spot him driving his supercar he arrived in his partner’s car.
“After that, he drove his own car but was obsessed about being seen or getting a parking ticket. He said he’d never be able to explain to his partner why he was in the City.
“When he came into the flat he was so nervous he was virtually shaking. He was wearing sunglasses and cap like an undercover cop but so suspicious!
“He doesn’t like to start sex so I led him into the bedroom.
It’s like he feels if the girl takes the lead it’s not his fault so he doesn’t feel guilty. And we had to drink vodka.
“He said he didn’t feel guilty about cheating on his partner if he was drunk because being drunk was an excuse.”
The star told Francesca he wanted to see her again.
She suggested the player should lie to his partner and say he had appointments including some with a physio.
Francesca said: “We would meet most weeks. Even though wewere six floors up he was so paranoid about being seen he’d go around shutting all the windows, drawing the blinds and curtains before we had sex, even in June and July. It was like a sauna in the flat.
“Afterwards he was always checking to see if there were blonde hairs on his body. He’d ask me to check him naked then to look over his clothes.”
Francesca decided to end it with the star earlier this month after realising she was getting emotionally involved.
She said: “It’s frustrating that he goes home to his partner. He promised to see me more but they were empty promises.”
