Ex-Barcelona star Maxi Lopez has claimed “he has no problems” with Mauro Icardi after the on-loan Paris Saint-Germain allegedly stole his wife Wanda Nara.
Former Barcelona forward Lopez, 35, made the comments on the Argentine radio show “El Que Abandona No Tiene Premio” (He Who Abandons Does Not Get A Prize) broadcast by radio station FM Club Octubre (October Club ).
During the programme, Lopez spoke about the attitude he has taken towards Icardi marrying his ex-wife and Italian television host Wanda Nara after the two were allegedly having an affair behind his back.
Lopez started by saying: “I chose to be happy. That is a choice we make in life. Things can go well or they can go wrong.. At that time I failed in my life, as a partner for example.
“But now I have the rest of my life to be a good father. It was a situation and that is it. You move on. I have always lived my life this way. Good energy and good vibes.
“Everyone has problems in their lives but I think your life unfolds depending on how you take it.”
When he was asked about having a “friendlier talk” and maybe even “reaching a point of forgiving” Icardi, Lopez assures he has other things in his mind by saying “Yeah, I do not have any problems with anyone.
“The only thing I want for my life outside of football. Speaking as a human being, all I want is to find a way to make my children happy, that is the only objective I have.
“As for everything else, that is something that already happened. I have turned the page on that a while ago and it does not affect me in any way.”
Lopez met Icardi when the pair were teammates at Sampdoria in 2012 and they became friends.
Not long after they met reports of the alleged affair between Nara and Icardi surfaced. Lopez and Nara split and began divorce proceedings in December 2013. The model subsequently married Icardi just five months later in May 2014.
Lopez and Nara have three sons together Valentino Gaston, 10, Constantino, eight and Benedicto, seven.
