A former professional footballer who made headlines for her sensational sacking has turned to adult website OnlyFans after her playing career ended in December.

English professional Madelene Wright was sensationally sacked by Charlton Athletic after she appeared in two videos that went viral on Snapchat.

One showed the former player inhaling from a balloon, while another showed her drinking champagne while behind the wheel of a Range Rover.

Wright added a link to her OnlyFans page to his Instagram account on Wednesday, with her story captioned ‘link on bio’ directing fans to the x-rated subscription website.

A monthly subscription to the 22-year-old’s page will set fans back roughly $50 per month, with Wright joining other former professional athletes such as Renee Gracie on the site.

Charlton Athletic described Wright’s behaviour as ‘not acceptable’ when the story first came to light in December.

Her sacking by Charlton Athletic wasn’t the first time off-field antics had earned her the condemnation of her club.

Wright was investigated by another former club, Millwall Lionesses, in 2019 after footage emerged of her dog steering her car.

“As a club we are disappointed with the behaviour which doesn’t represent the standards the team upholds,” a spokesman told The Sun.

“The player is remorseful and has now left the club.

“The club would like to make clear that although the behaviour is not acceptable, the players welfare remains important to us and she will still have access to the club's support channels if needed.”

Texts to betting pals led to Trippier ban

As Kieran Trippier was trying to secure a move from Tottenham, the England defender was sending messages on WhatsApp to keep friends updated with the progress of the transfer.

They were more than just keen on knowing which country Trippier would be moving to. They hoped to personally make a bit of cash, too, on him joining Atletico Madrid.

"Shall I lump on you going there?" one friend, Matthew Brady, who owns a personal assistant service for sports stars, texted Trippier on the evening of July 14, 2019.

"Can do mate," Trippier replied.

Brady wanted certainty: "100% Tripps?"

"Yeah mate," the player responded. "Don't blame me if something goes wrong. ... It shouldn't but just letting you no."

Then Trippier added, using a term for betting: "Lump on if you want mate."

By providing inside information that could be used for betting, Trippier was in breach of the English Football Association rules designed to protect the integrity of the game.

"Could only put a little bit on mate, they massively restricted the bet, keep me posted pal," Brady wrote.

"No worries mate," Trippier replied.

By providing inside information that could be used for betting, Trippier was found to be in breach of English Football Association rules designed to protect the integrity of the game.

Trippier, 30, was banned for 10 weeks and fined PS70,000 ($A123,265), although it has since been suspended pending an appeal.
