FC Barcelona: 5 Past and Present WAGs of La Blaugrana

0 of 6

    FC Barcelona is one of the greatest sporting clubs in the history of Spain, Europe, and the world. La Blaugrana has come along way since it was founded in 1899.

    Barca is the home of players such as Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique, Cesc Fabregas and Andres Iniesta. It was also the home of greats such as Johan Cruyff, Pep Guardiola, Ronaldinho and Samuel Eto'o.

    Behind the success of the players in La Blaugrana are their WAGs, or wives and girlfriends. They are present to offer support to the team, the players and to the world.

    It is for this reason that a slideshow dedicated to the five top WAGs of FC Barcelona is necessary. An invitation is sent to the BR readers to sit back, relax and enjoy the slideshow.

5. Shakira

    Shakira is currently one of the most famous WAGs of FC Barcelona. The Colombian and international singer is the WAG of Gerard Pique who is the defender in La Blaugrana.

    Shakira is seen here seeing the Copa Del Rey final match between FC Barcelona and Athletic Club Bilbao. The result of the match was a resounding victory for La Blaugrana.

    While it remains to be seen whether Shakira and Gerard Pique remain together, a community benefited from the couple.

    During the friendly match between FC Barcelona and Chivas of Guadalajara held in the summer of 2011, Shakira's Pies Descalzo (Barefoot Foundation) united with FC Barcelona and the Miami YMCA to assist in constructing sports complexes in Miami, Fla., and Colombia for disadvantaged children.

    The act of humanity received publicity from the online magazine Colombia Reports and NBC 6 of Miami.

    Daniela Semaan is the WAG of Cesc Fabregas who is the midfielder for FC Barcelona and Spain's Euro 2012 squad.

    According to the narrative of the YouTube video, Ms. Semaan was married to a Lebanese millionaire for 22 years and has two children from that marriage.

2. Malena Costa

    Malena Costa is a Spanish fashion model who was once the WAG of Carles Puyol, the FC Barcelona defender and possible candidate for Spain's Euro 2012 squad.

    Carles Puyol is no longer with Malena Costa, since they agreed to end their relationship, as reported by Kickette and Canal Gente.

    According to the translation from Spanish to English of the Canal Gente You Tube video, Ms. Costa refused to discuss the reasons for the break up. She only said that couples have their crisis and the solution was to end the relationship.

    The report also mentioned an age difference between Carles Puyols and Malena Costa. The idea of an age difference is not understandable since Puyol is in his 30's and Ms. Costa is in her 20's.

    The reason Malena Costa is mentioned in this video is historical since she was a WAG of a Barca player.

1. Antonella Roccuzzo
