Argentinian soccer player Maxi Lopez has said he has managed to forgive his former teammate Mauro Icardi for being the reason for his divorce with model Wanda Nara (Check out her pics above), and thanked the striker for “taking away” his ex-wife.

Lopez and Icardi became friends when they played for Italian club Sampdoria in 2012.

The teammates spent a lot of time together and were constantly going on vacations, and Nara was an inseparable part of the trio.

Things got bad when rumors of the model’s romantic affair with Icardi began surfacing.

She denied all allegations and accused the media of spreading fake news, but despite her attempts to convince the public of her marital fidelity, the couple split up in 2013.

Nara subsequently married Icardi, just five months after her divorce. Her three children from her marriage with Lopez now live with her and her new husband Icardi.
