Spurs striker, Saha reveals “footballers prefer prostitutes” because of “kiss-and-tell” women… and more
Could it be clearer than that? The Former Manchester United striker, Louis Saha has revealed that many young footballers use hookers in order to stay out of the spotlight.
Saha, who is playing for Tottenham Hotspur on loan, stated in a recent interview that young footballers often use hookers or escorts to stay out of the newspapers. Saha explained that this way players managed to evade the thirsty eyes of media.
The Everton forward, Saha has been doing media rounds in an attempt to promote his recently published autobiography.
In it Saha talks about the various facts about the life of a football player that are unknown to the common world. In the same retrospective, Saha explains that there are many players that are concerned by the negative publicity and the image media portrays about them.
Saha further states that such players are so much conscious about the negative publicity from kiss-and-tell stories that they utilize the services of professional hookers or escorts that are renowned for keeping secrets.
The French international, Saha said:
“Let’s be honest: women are the greatest temptation. For a young player, it’s an achilles heel.
“They can quickly be taken in, seduced by the girl who will cash in with a kiss-and-tell to the newspapers.
“So it’s hard to know who to trust and you become paranoid where women are concerned. Some players therefore prefer to use escorts.”
By the looks of it, Saha’s autobiography will be a big hit. According to reports, all of Saha’s former teammates have requested advanced copies of the book, probably to make sure he doesn’t talk about them in too much detail.
Well, Saha has been close to two of the most notorious cases of ‘escorts and young footballers’. His former Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney was under fire last season because of his off-field issues and reports linking him to an aged-out-of-town prostitute were no work of fiction.
Saha can also comment about Zahia Dehar, the under-age call girl, which caused worldwide embarrassment for France right after the 2010 World Cup when 3 football players from the French national team including Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema were accused of having sex with an underage escort.
