And if Citeh fans need a stronger reason to resent the midfielder, they should cast a jealous eye on his wife, 30-year-old actress and model Joanna Taylor.
Joanna is known by most young people and those without jobs as feisty rich girl Geri Hudson in Hollyoaks, and she also played brilliantly-named PC Jackie Brown in Merseybeat.
