“Is it better to get divorced and end up fighting, screaming and shouting? Or is it better to get on if you can?”
During the same interview, the former Tottenham Hotspur player said he is single and doesn’t see a third marriage in his future.
The sportsman joked that he prefers a meal for one and being “unanswerable” to anyone as oppose to being in a relationship.
He added of a third marriage: “It’s just a contract and it’s so easy to get married and so difficult to get unmarried.”
