You may already be well aware that Chris Smalling WAG Sam Cooke is a fine example of what average-looking blokes can achieve if they become even semi-decent Premier League footballers.
See some of our other Smalling WAG galleries for hot pics of the Manchester United defender’s wife, whom the England international has now credited with turning him vegan!
In an interview with the Times, Smalling says he’s really feeling the benefits after his missus talked him into this big lifestyle change as he found he’d had one or two fitness niggles due to eating a lot of red meat previously.
‘My wife has been vegan for a while; she often tried to persuade me over the years to go vegan,’ he said.
‘I wasn’t fully vegan and when we would eat out I would eat what I would normally have. After a while I started to cut out red meat.
‘Then the missus throws quite a lot of documentaries at you and it opens your eyes a little bit in terms of different industries and that persuaded me to go full vegan. Normally the start of pre-season can be quite a tough time because you’re loading and that’s normally when it’s at its worst but I haven’t felt it at all.’
United fans will hope this can help the 28-year-old find the extra yards to add something to his game and stay fit more often as he joins Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin as one of the most high-profile athletes now choosing a vegan diet.
Smalling WAG Sam Cooke is certainly a stunner, as some of these pictures show, and it’s good to know she’s also a fine influence on the United ace!
