Wanda Icardi Defends PSG’s Mauro After Instagram Deletes His Post Calling Her ‘Female Dog’

Wanda Icardi has defended her husband, Paris Saint-Germain striker Mauro Icardi, after his Instagram post calling her a "female dog" was deleted.

The Argentine forward had posted a photo of himself with Wanda and their dog with the caption: "Mi Perro my mi Perra," which translates as "My [male] dog and my [female] dog".

Wanda, who has 7.5 million followers on Instagram, replied to the post: "How funny," probably with a strong tone of sarcasm.

However now that the social media company has reportedly deleted the former Inter Milan striker's controversial post, Wanda stuck up for her husband, claiming his comment had been lost in translation.

"He writes in Spanish and is not responsible for translations into other languages," said Wanda on an Instagram story on her own page, according to the Sun.

"Never - for a person like Mauro - will dog/bitch be an insult because he loves animals so much," the 34-year-old added.

"Some very ridiculous people."

The PSG forward Icardi hasn't played for the Argentina national team since 2018, so was relaxing with his family during the international break.

He has been a controversial figure, despite his ability in front of goal that saw him finish as Serie A's top scorer twice. Wanda Nara (as she was previously) was married to Icardi's former Sampdoria teammate Maxi Lopez, but split with that Argentine forward when it emerged she was having an affair with Icardi.

The pair married in 2014, shortly after Wanda's divorce was finalised, but it made them a controversial couple in Argentina and has likely contributed to his relative lack of international call-ups (Icardi has just eight caps, despite his scoring prowess on the pitch).

He remains an important player for PSG as they look to seal the Ligue 1 title and win a Champions League quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich.

And it seems his dog quip about his wife has not landed him in the doghouse at home, even though Instagram took the decision to remove the player's post.
