JULIAN ALVAREZ’s stunning girlfriend has promised him in a declaration of love: “I’ll follow you wherever you ask me.”
And pretty PE teacher Emilia Ferrero followed through on her promise by posting a selfie kissing the Man City striker and telling him “I love you” as they met again after Argentina made it to the last 16.
Brunette Emilia showed their romance is going as smoothly as the South American country’s World Cup campaign after a stumble on day one against Saudi Arabia with a string of romantic Middle Eastern posts.
The ice hockey player, who hails from the same village of Calchin, Córdoba, as her former River Plate frontman boyfriend, is said to have briefly dated Alvarez about five years ago before they resumed their relationship.
But it wasn’t until his move to Manchester earlier this season that the couple went public with their romance.
Emilia, whose full name is Maria Emilia Ferrero but uses her middle name as her first, posed for a selfie in an Argentinian top outside Qatar’s Lusail Stadium, where Argentina played Mexico last Saturday.
She wrote in a message alongside the snap: “I will follow you wherever you ask me.
“I will cheer for you for the rest of my life.”
Overnight, she posted photos of her planting a kiss on Julian’s cheek alongside her ‘Te Amo’ – English for ‘I love you’ – message and celebrating Argentina getting through the group stage with the footballer’s relatives.
The Man City player, who scored a superb goal for his country in Wednesday’s World Cup win over Poland, responded to his girlfriend’s “I love you” message on his own Instagram Story: “Me too, my love.”
HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON THE WORLD CUP
Alvarez appears to have secured a place in Lionel Scaloni’s starting XI after scoring against Mexico and then Australia.
The 22-year-old has scored seven goals in 20 games for Man City and has seen much of his playing time come off the bench or from wide positions thanks to Erling Haaland’s record-breaking exploits.
