According to reports, Arsenal boss-Arsene Wenger has finally split from his wife after months of media speculation about the state of his marriage.
“The Gunners chief and long term lover Annie, 59, are said to have agreed a financial package and divided up their assets. The couple, who have an 18-year-old daughter have not been pictured together since 2013,” reports UK’s Mirror.
Arsene Wenger has previously admitted that his high pressured job with the London club had put pressure on his relationship.
It is not clear whether the couple are still living together in London at their mansion close to Arsenal’s training ground—It’s however understood that court papers filed in Wenger’s hometown of Strasbourg, France, show they have not been together since June of this year.
A French legal expert told The Sun newspaper that; ‘This is a legal separation, which means the couple are not legally obliged to live together, and they can have separate lives, and no longer have intimate relations.
‘He will have to still keep his responsibilities to look after the family. If the judgment is not overturned within two years, a divorce will be automatically granted.’
