Mauro Icardi’s wife Wanda Nara sparked fears the couple had split by burning photos of the Inter Milan star.
Icardi has been in the headlines in recent weeks after he was stripped of the captaincy amid a contract dispute.
The Argentine has subsequently missed Inter’s last two matches and there are suggestions he will move on this summer.
Wanda Nara, 32, is also Icardi’s agent and has been at the heart of the issue with reports suggesting she prevented her husband joining Real Madrid.
The pair have seemingly remained in unison off the pitch although she fuelled claims they had split on Monday.
Nara appeared to be going through a stage of a break-up, albeit very publicly, as she burned hear-shaped images of the pair.
The clip was posted on Instagram with her followers quick to speculate the couple were heading for divorce.
But there is a very good reason behind the video – and it is a long way from indicating a break-up.
It is Argentine tradition to burn a picture of your partner the day or the day of their birthday.
Icardi turns 26 on Tuesday and Wanda was simply showing off her love for the striker.
She later uploaded a message to her husband alongside a family photo with their children.
“Nobody can imagine the human being that you are, because nobody is like you. Thank you for giving me the courage that every woman deserves,” she wrote.
“I always say you are a great example of a man, father and husband. You know we will always be with you, every step of the way.”
