You can take footballers off the pitch but you cannot take their football instincts away from them, and Erik Sviatchenko proved this claim after tying the knot with long-time girlfriend Anne Rudmose today.
The Celtic defender married his partner (who also plays as a left-winger for the Celtic ladies’ team) after being together for over a decade.
Their decision to get married finally materialized after the couple had their first child, William, last year. The Danish footballer had been on a holiday after the season ended just for this, and will join his team-mates again for the Champions League qualifiers later this month.
It’s rare to see two footballers tie the knot, but it was amazing to see Sviatchenko try to head the confetti while holding his newly-wedded wife’s hand. Check out the video below –
