Strange, surreal, embarrassing, just a few words I came up with to represent how Owen Hargreaves must feel at the fact that his girlfriend has probably played more football matches than him. Hargreaves has of course re-ignited an old flame with Janelle Khouri.
Janelle happens to have been a professional football player herself, and played for the Canadian national under-20 team in 2000 and was captain of Calgary United’s under-19 team the year before.
She had previously been engaged to Hargreaves but the pair only started dating again after the crocked Manchester United player broke up with ex girlfriend Zabeena Harris. Reportedly on the basis that Hargreaves had enjoyed “a secret date with a former sweetheart.” All make sense?
Khouri is of course the lovely lady with whom the midfielder lived when he was rocking some Michael Ballack-style curtains at Bayern Munich. Janelle met Hargreaves while she on a football scholarship to the University of Massachusetts. Presumably impressing him with her ability to remain on the pitch for 90 minutes and off the treatment table for over a week.
None the less, it seems the pair are destined to be together forever. I hope she has got out health insurance this time though!
