Sampdoria striker Maxi opens up on wife's affair with Icardi

Sampdoria striker Maxi Lopez has been discussing the split with his wife involving Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi.

Maxi is divorcing wife Wanda Nara, a TV star and model in Argentina, after she left him for Inter striker Icardi.

"I left Catania so that I could stay closer to my children, who now live in Milan," he told TyC.

"It has been a very difficult time in my life and I cried a lot, but it all passed thanks to football. It was not a normal break-up, but at the end of the day nobody died.

"All I want now is to spend time with my children. Who knows, maybe one day I'll face Icardi on the field and we'll have a good laugh about it."
