The marriage ended in divorce.
Unai married Luisa Fernandez in a private marriage in 1998. In a restaurant, the couple initially got to know each other through mutual acquaintances. However, the marriage did not last long and ended in divorce. Lander Emery Fernandez, the couple’s 18-year-old son, is the couple’s only child.
His father and grandfather were goalkeepers.
Juan, Unai’s father, and Antonio, Unai’s grandfather, were both goalkeepers. His grandfather played for Real Union in the 1920s and helped them win the Copa del Rey in 1924 and 1927. Growing up in a household of goalkeepers, where football was a daily topic, instilled in me a love for the game. He started playing football with his feet, which led to a career as a left-sided midfielder. Lander, one of his sons, is the other goalkeeper on the team. His son’s first football memory is of his grandfather as a goalkeeper.
He called his ex-girlfriend a white witch.
Unai was in a relationship with Sacha Wright until they broke up in September 2019. The pair first met in the summer of 2018. Sacha said she was unaware of his fame because she didn’t follow football very closely. Their frequent meeting point was the Gaucho steak restaurant in Hampstead, North West London. When they moved into his beautiful home in Barnet and he started watching games in bed, she became aware of his football fixation. Later, he gradually began to blame her for every misfortune at Arsenal, calling her a white witch and bringing misfortune into his life. According to her, he was constantly watching games and checking the results, and lying in bed watching games with one game on the computer and the other on the tablet.
She soon became accustomed to his behavior, but her annoyance peaked when he refused to introduce her to his friends and family and became annoyed when someone tried to photograph them together. Since the relationship she thought was serious wasn’t serious for him, she chose to end it. When Unai was fired from Arsenal, she rushed back to him, but he blamed her for his dismissal. According to reports, Unai met another lady, Lucila Vila Segui, a bar owner at his home in Spain, and at the same time was in a relationship with his current girlfriend.
What does he like Outside of football?
Unai is very devout and looks forward to the big festival in his birthplace, the Alarde de Hondarribia. Since 1639, the celebration has been held on September 8 to thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for their freedom from the siege, which they had promised when the city was surrounded by French troops on July 1, 1638, and to commemorate those who died in the siege .
They had promised to go to her sanctuary on the Olearso promontory if they could free themselves through her prayers. It survived for 69 days and was destroyed when 25,000 French troops bombed the city, leaving only 300 survivors, but they continued to fight. Finally the French troops left. He also enjoys racket sports such as padel and chess. He also likes to walk and does this often.
His annual salary at Arsenal was estimated at £6 million, while his salary at PSG was reportedly £4.5 million. His projected net worth in 2021 is between £25 million and £50 million.
