In a shocking revelation, Italian model Paola Saulino has stirred controversy by claiming that a mere two per cent of Premier League footballers remain faithful to their partners.
Saulino, known for her candid remarks, has come to the defence of Manchester City star Kyle Walker amidst a scandal involving his secret child with influencer Lauryn Goodman while married to Annie Kilner.
Saulino's Bold Statements
Saulino asserted, as "I have had three relationships in my life with guys from the Premier League who I later discovered were engaged or married. I was disappointed but let it always be clear that I too had a relationship with them, the difference lies in maturity."

Kyle Walker, the Manchester City defender, has publicly addressed the recent turmoil in his personal life, following his separation from his wife Annie Kilner.
She continued, "I take what men are and not for what I imagine them to be and I don't delude myself. I live in the present if I like it and if I don't like something, I leave and I don't even give the explanations if they aren't capable of understanding them."
Defense of Kyle Walker
Defending Walker's actions, Saulino remarked, "I sincerely believe that betrayal is a very natural thing in life. What's wrong? Perhaps betrayal just has a bad name but it is normal that we can desire other things in life. Why shouldn't it be the same in love?"
She sympathized with Walker, highlighting that infidelity might not be uncommon among footballers. "I definitely sympathize with Walker because 98 percent of footballers do this, perhaps not creating a parallel life, but it is very easy to have two or three wives and children scattered around."
Walker, in a rare interview about his personal life, expressed deep remorse for his actions. He admitted, "What I’ve done is horrible and I take full responsibility.
I made idiot choices and idiot decisions. I can’t begin to think or imagine what Annie is going through."
Reflecting on the impact of his actions, Walker added, "My actions have caused a lot of pain to a lot of people. I’m sorry because, as a family, this isn’t meant to happen."
With the European Championships looming, Walker's role in Gareth Southgate's England squad remains uncertain amidst the fallout from his personal life.
