Louis Saha has revealed in his new book that some footballers are sex addicts, and even use hookers.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker said that kiss-and-tell girls make players “paranoid about women”.

“As a result, some among them resort to using escort girls instead,” the Sun quoted him as telling French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche.

Married Saha, who interviewed a host of players for his newly-published autobiography, accepted that sex addiction, flash jewellery and big cars are all part of Britain’s football scene.

“Let’s be honest, women are the biggest temptation. For a young player they can even be an Achilles heel. A player can be conned by a woman who goes to sell her story. I’ve seen some lads become very destabilised as a result.

“When that happens you just need to think about the situation for half a second and you end up playing a bad game for your club.

“So it is hard to trust anybody, and players become paranoid about women,” he said.

A number of footballers have found themselves at the centre of kiss-and-tell allegations in recent years.

Peter Crouch was accused of a fling behind Abbey Clancy’s back with a 19-year-old Algerian prostitute on a stag weekend in Madrid, and Wayne Rooney was accused of cheating on wife Coleen with two hookers.

“Footballers are not all the same.

“Yes, bling, sex addicts and big cars are all there, but when people pass judgment it’s the bad stuff that takes precedence,” he added.
