Soccer great, 86, to wed secretary, aged 36

Alfredo di Stefano

SOCCER great Alfredo di Stefano, 86, has announced plans to marry a woman 50 years his junior.

The Argentine says he wants to wed his 36-year-old secretary, Gina Gonzalez, and will ask Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to be his best man.

Di Stefano, whose wife Sara Freites died in 2005, admitted his six children might not be happy at hearing the news.

But he told Spanish newspaper 'El Mundo': "I've been a widower for eight years. I'm in love. I'm 86 years old but I've got a young heart."

Di Stefano met Costa Rican brunette Gina when he was preparing his biography. She now works as his secretary, manager and representative.
