Nicolo Zaniolo hit the headlines recently as he left his pregnant girlfriend for the 33-year-old model, Madalina Ghenea.

The 21-year-old


midfielder’s mother,

Francesca Costa

, expressed her disapproval of her son’s decision in an interview with Radio ‘Radio’.

“We wanted to keep things quiet and private.

“Sara has always been treated like a member of the family. As soon as we discovered she was expecting a baby, he called us up and was distraught. He was no longer in love with her.

“I had offered to take her to the doctor, but she left and I haven’t heard from her since. She certainly wasn’t thrown out of their home together, and in fact I heard she blocked him on social medial.

“It’s true she already had an abortion seven months ago, and the situation was unpleasant then too, as they broke up and then got back together. They weren’t mature enough to go down that path.”

The Italian footballer is reportedly dating the Romanian model

Madalina Ghenea

, who is 12 years older than him. Nicolo’s mother also doesn’t approve of his son dating someone who’s ‘not much younger’ than his mother.

“We absolutely do not agree with him seeing this woman, who isn’t much younger than me,”

Francesca Costa


“We are trying to get him to think carefully, but unfortunately this story hit the headlines. Some people said we gave him bad advice, but we told him very different things about this.”



Claudio Vigorelli

, who was also on the show, insisted:

“Nicolò has the same story as many young kids who experience love affairs that are perhaps premature and rushed. It’s only raising eyebrows because Zaniolo is a Roma player.”
