Paraguayan club Libertad de Paraguay fired coach Leonel Alvarez for allegedly having a secret affair with Patty Gonzalez, the wife of Libertad midfielder Edgar Benitez.
While the lady has taken to social media and denied the rumours, the love triangle takes another twist following claims Libertad striker Tacuara Cardozo has had an affair with Alvarez’s girlfriend.
“I assure you it’s completely false,” she is quoted as saying. “From my side, it’s clearer and I hope people from the club clear up the situation at some point.
The truth is that we have nothing to do with the situation, we are unconnected with what happened.”
Paraguayan TV show Teleshow claim that aside from Alvarez being rumoured to have had an affair with Gonzalez, Libertad striker Tacuara Cardozo is said to have had s*x with Alvarez’s own girlfriend, model Johanna Garcia, 31.
Former Colombia star Alvarez, who won 101 caps between 1985 and 1997, has been dating Garcia, 20 years his junior since 2012 and the couple have a daughter together.
Alvarez, who has two other children from another relationship, is yet to make a statement on the situation but his assistant Ruben Dario Bedoya told reporters:
“We came to training at 7.30am but they didn’t let us go in.
It doesn’t seem professional to us, it’s shocking treatment. It surprised us because if a decision is made, one must be allowed to enter and take their belongings. It’s disrespectful.”
