Melissa Satta has revealed her regrets about one of the most infamous sex admissions in recent football memory.
In 2012 the wife of former Tottenham player Kevin Prince-Boateng said her husband got injured so much because they had sex up to 10 times a week.

“The reason Kevin is injured so often is because we have sex seven to 10 times a week,” the Italian TV presenter said during Prince-Boateng’s time at AC Milan.
“I hate foreplay, I want to go straight for it. I prefer to be on top so that I can be in control.”
The shock comments sparked uproar at the time and have followed Prince-Boateng throughout his career.
The 32-year-old has since played for Schalke, Las Palmas, Eintracht Frankfurt, Sassuolo, Barcelona, Fiorentina and Besiktas.
However his wife’s confession gets mentioned every time he suffers an injury.
Satta, 33, has now opened up and expressed her regret about the X-rated confession.
“You can't believe what a whirlwind I ended up in,” she told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“You have to be very careful about what you say in football, especially when it comes to sex.
“Just because we have sex so often doesn't make me a nymphomaniac.”
Liverpool upset at call to end Premier League season
Meanwhile, Premier League leaders Liverpool said they were ‘disappointed’ by the city's mayor saying the season should not be re-started even behind closed doors because of the risk of fans gathering outside Anfield.
The club were 25 points clear of closest rivals Manchester City, who have a game in hand, when the league was suspended in March and need only two wins to secure their first top flight title in 30 years.
EPL clubs are set to meet on Friday to discuss ways to finish the season, with some already back in individual training.
Liverpool's mayor Joe Anderson told the BBC on Thursday that health and safety was the bottom line and the best thing to do was to declare the season over and hand the title to Liverpool as deserving champions.
“Even if it was behind closed doors, there'd be many thousands of people who would turn up outside Anfield,” said Anderson.
“I think it would be really difficult for the police to keep people apart and maintain social distancing if they were going to celebrate outside Anfield. It would be farcical.”
But Liverpool replied in a statement saying there was “a lack of evidence to support such claims”.
“In recent weeks, we have engaged with supporters' groups who have informed us of their determination to respect social distancing measures,” the club added.
“In the event of a resumption of football being announced, we would continue to work with them and other key stakeholders in keeping with our collective desire to achieve this crucial objective.”
