It comes after David admitted that the 2006 World Cup WAG brigade, including his wife Victoria, went “too far” after stealing the show during the 2006 World Cup.
Led by the designer, Cheryl and Coleen Rooney, the glamorous wives and girlfriends were famously in the spotlight throughout the tournament, garnering more attention than their player husbands actually taking to the field in Germany.
Now David has admitted that Victoria grins at some of the looks she wore when she looks back on the competition years later, in an interview for Gary Neville’s The Overlap YouTube channel.
Looking back on the decision to put the footballer’s families at the center of that World Cup, David admitted he was never against having loved ones support them during the tournament.

He said, ‘I think they were paying attention. I always believed that as a captain of England having wives and girlfriends and the kids around was not a bad thing.
“Once you’re in training camp, you’re in training camp, you have to concentrate, but I think at the beginning of a tournament it’s not a big deal.”
But the sportsman, who captained the Three Lions for the tournament that saw them crash into the quarter-finals after losing a penalty shoot-out to Portugal, confessed that the obsession with the WAGs went ‘too far’.

He said, ‘Looking back, that whole culture – there was a lot of attention for that and whether people behaved the right way, I don’t know.
‘Even Victoria – she’s the first to say now – what did I do, what did I wear, why should I do that? it did [go too far]†
‘There was more talk about the WAGs than about football. at that point, players want to focus on the tournament. It went too far, but I believe it’s a good thing to have the WAGs and family around.”
Victoria joined the army of WAGs that famously descended to Germany with their families during that World Cup, attracting attention with their designer-clad outfits as they cheered on their husbands in the stands.
