Adil Rami Biography
Adil Rami was born on the 27th of December 1985, in Bastia, Corsica, an island region of France located on the Mediterranean Sea. He is the third child of four children to his parents who were originally from Morocco.
The Rami family moved around a lot while their son was growing up. They eventually settled in Frejus, south-eastern France where his mother found work as a member of the city council. From a young age, Adil Rami had hoped to become a footballer. At the age of nine, he joined local youth side, Etoile Frejus Saint-Raphael, where he honed his skills. Later on in life, while still hoping to play professional football, he concurrently worked for the city council as a cleaner to make ends meet.
Rami made his debut for the club, who was at the time playing in the French fourth division, in 2003. He first played a central midfield role before later switching to central defense after a teammate suffered an injury. The shift in the position turned out to be a blessing in disguise as Rami excelled in his new position and earned himself a trail at Lille during the 2005-06 season.
The player had a successful trial and was subsequently signed to an amateur contract. He finished that season playing for his new club’s amateur side before being promoted to the first team following a string of decent performances. He went on to sign a professional contract with Lille and soon became a starter for the club.
Adil Rami played for Lille from 2006 to 2011 during which he became one of the most sought-after defenders in the French league. In 2011, Lille sold him to Spanish club Valencia for a fee reported to be in the region €6 – 10 million. He joined the club at the end of the season and was an instant hit as he scored a goal on his debut. He stayed in Valencia for two years before moving to Milan after he had been suspended by the team for openly criticizing his teammates and coach.
After spending close to two years in Milan, Rami returned to Spain to join Sevilla in July 2015. In July 2017, Marseille paid a transfer fee of around €6 million for his services. Adil Rami was part of the Marseille team that lost the 2018 UEFA Europa League Final to Atletico Madrid.
Adil Rami Relationship with Pamela Anderson
Adil Rami is in a relationship with American-Canadian actress and model Pamela Anderson, who is nineteen years his senior. She was recently spotted in Russia blowing kisses and supporting her boyfriend who is currently playing in the World Cup for France.
Rumors about the pair being an item surfaced late in 2017 with both parties choosing to remain tight-lipped about it. It however later emerged that the former Playboy star first met the footballer in May 2007 during the Monaco Grand Prix and almost soon after began dating.
It is not clear if the two have plans of getting married, however, Anderson, who recently moved to France, presumably to stay close to her athlete boyfriend, has over the past month been spotted wearing what looks like an expensive ring, a diamond Cartier Panther ring to be exact.
