Football seems to have it’s very own version of Romeo and Juliet.
The pair of star crossed lovers are Montague’s (sorry, Arsenal’s) Olivier Giroud and Capulet’s (Manchester United’s) Patrice Evra.
The Les Bleus duo were caught sharing a tender and romantic moment during France’s recent World Cup Qualifer, in a picture that is set to shock supporters in both Manchester and North London.
The two clubs have been fierce rivals for years, and quite how it this picture is set to go down remains to be seen.
Evra seems to be the one who initiated the moment judging by the picture, and he has the look of a man who is finally free to be the way he wishes.
Perhaps this has something to do with the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson. A romance between these rivals would never have been possible during his tenure. But with David Moyes the man now in charge, the players can do what they wish when it comes to romance it seems.
Just ask Wilfried Zaha!
