Marina Luczenko and the Best Arsenal WAGs
The Polish shot-stopper is by no means the only Gunner to boast an aesthetically pleasing other half—here's a selection of some of the most noteworthy Arsenal WAGs...
Mandy Capristo (Mesut Ozil)
Mesut Ozil's summer arrival didn't just bring a new dimension to Arsenal's attack—it brought Germany's answer to Posh and Becks.
Mandy Capristo is a model and singer who rose to fame on the reality TV show Popstars, on which her band Monrose were successful.
She has now moved to London and recently posted an Instagram photo of her and Ozil enjoying a drink at a bar with an unwitting fan in the background.
Ludivine Sagna (Bacary Sagna)
Bacary Sagna's wife Ludivine is a model from Auxerre, where the defender spent the formative years of his career.
She is the mother of Sagna's two children, she has a picture-heavy Twitter profile and, as you can see, she is the owner of a very garish Range Rover.
Lorena Bernal (Mikel Arteta)
Mikel Arteta's wife, Lorena Bernal, is a model and TV actress who was born in Argentina but has enjoyed most of her career success in Spain.
She was crowned Miss Spain in 1999 and subsequently became a Miss World contestant. Away from the pageants, Lorena has appeared in numerous films and TV shows. Her biggest exposure to an English-speaking audience was her role on an episode of CSI Miami.
Lorena and the Gunners midfielder currently have two children.
Melanie Slade (Theo Walcott)
One of the most likeable WAGs in the beautiful game is Melanie Slade, the childhood sweetheart of Theo Walcott.
Unlike many of her WAG counterparts, Melanie never courts press attention and prefers to keep a low profile.
Fun fact: Her father was once mayor of Southampton.
Polly Parsons (Thomas Vermaelen)
After breaking up with Dutch model Aimee van Ommen, defender Thomas Vermaelen began romancing British TV star and glamour model Polly Parsons. She is perhaps best known for her work on BBC show The Real Hustle.
In September, Vermaelen became the father to a baby boy named Raff.
Monika Podolski (Lukas Podolski)
Polish-German striker Lukas Podolski always seems to have a grin on his face—perhaps it is because he has managed to persuade a lady like Monika to be his eternal betrothed.
Monika gave birth to their son Louis Gabriel in 2008 and they were married in a civil ceremony in Cologne in 2011.
