Wesley Sneijder says no to new love
The story so far
Wesley Sneijder, one of the most celebrated Dutch footballers of his generation, has made the decision to put his love life on hold in the hope of reconciling with his estranged wife, Yolanthe Cabau. The couple had been married for nine years but split up in March 2019 amid rumours of infidelity.
Since the split, Sneijder has been linked with a number of women, but has steadfastly refused to enter into another relationship. Speaking to the Dutch media recently, he said that he was still deeply in love with Cabau, and that seeing her with another man would be too much for him to bear.
A painful separation
Sneijder, who retired from professional football in 2019, has had a lot of time to reflect on his marriage since the split. In interviews, he has been candid about the mistakes he made, and has been apologetic for the hurt he caused Cabau.
It has been reported that the couple still talk regularly, and that Sneijder is hoping to persuade Cabau to give their marriage another chance. However, this may be easier said than done. It was reported recently that Cabau has started dating again, and is seeing a new man.
A glimmer of hope
Despite this setback, Sneijder is not giving up hope of a reconciliation. In the same Dutch media interview, he said that he was willing to wait for as long as it takes to win back Cabau’s love. He went on to say that he believed that she still loved him, but that she was holding back because of the pain he had caused her in the past.
At the moment, it seems that the ball is firmly in Cabau’s court. Only time will tell whether she is willing to forgive Sneijder and give their marriage another chance.
