News : David Odonkor: World Cup hero and his Suzan split up after 15 years of marriage
At the 2006 World Cup in his own country, David Odonkor sprinted into the hearts of DFB fans. Always by his side: girlfriend Suzan. As the ex-professional now announces, the love fairy tale is over after 15 years of marriage.
The then 21-year-old Borussia Dortmund player met Suzan in 2005 in a café in Bielefeld. It seemed like love at first sight: a year later the two married and moved to Spain together, where he hired at the Spanish club Betis Sevilla.
In 2008 daughter Adriana was born – perfect love happiness. But now – after 15 years of marriage – the bang! As Odonkor confirms to “Bild”, he and Suzan have split up!
Odonkor: “We will be there for wonderful daughter together”
“Suzan and I have decided that we will go our separate ways in the future. We have had a wonderful 15 years together and a wonderful daughter who we will always be there for.”
As “Bild” reports, Odonkor has bought an apartment in Düsseldorf, while Suzan and daughter Adriana stay in the same house in Bielefeld.
“Life sometimes develops differently than you imagine. But one thing is certain. We are no longer a couple, but we stand with absolute respect and love for one another,” stressed Odonkor.
