WAGS book resort near England base in bid to defy Capello’s banFebruary 26th, 2010 - 1:30 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb 26 (ANI): England WAGS have decided to put up at a luxury resort just 14 miles from the players during the World Cup in South Africa in order to defy team boss Fabio Capello’s bid to ban them.
The six-star Palace Hotel in South Africa’s Sun City complex has already taken bookings for June and July from wives and girlfriends and is expecting more.
Staff believe the likes of Victoria Beckham, Coleen Rooney and Alex Gerrard will be among the guests.
The move will have hardline boss Capello fuming, because he has made it clear he wants no WAGS near his training camp, The Sun reports.
The WAGS’ boozy antics in the German town of Baden Baden made headlines at the World Cup finals four years ago.
But Sun City manager Gert Venter cannot wait to welcome the football girls.
“For reasons of confidentiality we cannot confirm who will be coming to stay with us. But we will be getting some high profile wives and girlfriends here during the World Cup,” he said.
“This place offers the luxury and the security guests of that profile would expect. We have everything they could possibly need,” Venter added.
Sun City, a haunt of stars like Sir Elton John, is a two hour drive from Johannesburg.
It has restaurants, shops and casinos galore. A night in the Palace’s Desert Suite costs 5,000 pounds. (ANI)
