Former Premier League player Greg Halford has caused a stir online, after recording himself throwing his ‘cheating’ ex partner’s belongings out of his house.
Halford, the kind of player whose name would only pop up under one of those ‘lads can just name obscure footballers for hours and be happy’ type tweets, didn’t play too many times in the top tier.
The defender appeared 28 times in the Premier League for Reading, Sunderland and Wolverhampton Wanderers, last appeared in England’s top tier in 2011.
He has had quite the career away from that league however, playing 500 times in total across the lower leagues, and over half a century of appearances in all competitions.
Now the 38-year-old has sprung himself back into the minds of fans, by going viral after posting a video of him throwing his partner’s belongings from his house, as you can see in the video below.
Halford, who now plays for Hashtag United, posted the video on social media along with the caption, “Been far far to long but finally clearing out the cheating c**t ex stuff.”
The defender has just over 43,000 followers on Twitter but the video has now been viewed well over one million times since Sunday morning.
The one time record signing for Reading clearly had no issues airing out his partner’s dirty laundry, or her clean ornaments, clothes, CDs, collectables and anything else, for all to see.
It is not the first time recently that a former Premier League player has let everyone know what’s going on with his now ex partner recently.
With Gerard Pique involved in an extremely public falling out with his former partner Shakira, with the Colombian releasing a song about him.
Shakira and Pique split last year after 11 years together. Image: AlamyIn her diss track about the former Manchester United defender, and his new girlfriend, the music artist sang, “I’m worth two 22-year-olds.
“You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo. You traded a Rolex for a Casio.”
The 35-year-old didn’t take the criticism too much to heart however, picking up watch manufacturers as a new sponsor for his new seven-a-side football league venture.
He then turned up to one of the events driving a Twingo, to really make it known how unbothered he was by the lyrics in his ex’s latest song.
Pique and Shakira aren’t football’s first drama couple. Image: AlamyThe pair’s public break up pales in comparison to the on again, off again, on again, off again drama that is Mauro Icardi and his wife Wanda Nara.
The pair came together in rather unusual circumstances in the first place, with Wanda originally married to Icardi’s then teammate Maxi Lopez.
In recent months, the Galatasaray forward and his wife have split up on a number of occasions, including most recently when she put it to a social media vote.
