You know the saying: “Behind every successful man there is a woman”.
This has certainly been the case with Alexander Hleb as we revealed on this site back in December of last year.
Everyone was revelling, but also trying to fathom out the reason for his newfound rigour and fantastic effectiveness on the football pitch.
And Hleb had revealed the reason: His wife Nastya (Anastasia Kosenkova).
" My wife has helped me a lot. I married a year ago and since she came over to live with me, everything seems easier to me.
“Every goal, every decent pass gives me new power. Then, I feel easy and free, as if I could fly.”
Nastya as you may know is famous pop star and sings for the pop group “Topless”
It seems that Nasri’s performances on the pitch both for his club, Marseille and for the France national team as of late have been similarly boosted.
The woman behind the man in this case is famous tennis star Tatiana Golovin.
She has confirmed to the French press that the two are now a pair!
Tatiana did it showing a little embarrassment but smiling.
She could no longer hide it as the photos of the two embraced in a tender kiss, published in the press left little room for doubt.
Tatiana Golovin (born January 25, 1988) is a French professional tennis player of Russian descent.
She is best known for winning the 2004 French Open mixed doubles event with her countryman Richard Gasquet.
She also reached the singles quarterfinal at the 2006 U.S. Open, losing to the eventual champion Maria Sharapova.
The 20-year-old's highest singles ranking to date is 12.
Let’s see if Nasri’s performances, hopefully on the Emirates pitch next season, continue on the same path.
