Aston Villa players Alisha Lehmann and Douglas Luiz have split up over the release of her official 2023 calendar, according to reports.
The pair had been together for over a year after they met at the club’s grounds and since, they have built a large social media following.
Back in September, they sat down with Aston Villa’s media team and participated in a ‘Mr. and Mrs’ game show for the club’s social media channels, and fans loved the content.
But it appears Switzerland international Lehmann and Brazilian midfielder Luiz have now ended their relationship after they ‘rowed a lot’ over her new calendar, report The Sun.

“He quickly asked her out and they became a footballing power couple. They were so loved up. But, sadly, as Alisha became more in demand off the pitch, the cracks started to appear in their relationship.
“When asked to do a calendar, she jumped at the chance to show off her sexy side but he was not happy. He didn’t think it was something she should be doing. They rowed a lot and in the end Alisha simply had enough.”
Lehmann’s calendar is currently for sale on her official website for £29.99. Fans can also purchase a signed copy for £49.99.
The description reads: “Swiss International female footballer Alisha Lehmann’s Official 2023 Calendar includes never seen before images. Unsigned and signed copies available.”
Earlier this year, Aston Villa midfielder Luiz hit out at a reporter after he ‘disrespected’ Lehmann.
Milton Neves, a 71-year-old Brazilian TV host, shared a video of Lehmann celebrating a goal by jumping and turning her back.
The clip was accompanied with the message: “Without returning to the video, what number was on her shirt?”
Neves’ post didn’t do down well with Luiz, who slammed his fellow countryman’s social media post.
The Brazilian midfielder quote-tweeted the post and wrote: “You are old, (with) years in football and post a video that doesn’t respect women’s football nor the player who, in this case, is my girlfriend.
“You never learned what respect is! Damn!”
