April Ivy, whose real name Mariana Goncalves, however kept their photos on Instagram, including the one they snapped on the eve of her 22nd birthday earlier this summer.
She moved to London just before the outbreak of the pandemic in her bid to pursue her music career before Dias signed for Man City from Benfica in September 2020.
Dias once told telling Uefa’s website how April ribbed him of his obsession for football via Saba Football:
“Many times my girlfriend turns to me and says, ‘Oh, you’re going to see another game?!
"From a young age, encouraged by my father, I got used to learning something in everything I see and not just seeing the game as a show but as a study material.'
Ruben Dias names best defender in the world
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ruben Dias has been named the number one center-back in the world right now according to new rankings powered by WhoScored and cited in SPORTbible.
Manchester City had lavished cash on the club’s defence since 2016 when Pep Guardiola arrived at the Etihad Stadium, but the back problem was solved when Dias arrived last season and he has been regarded as the best.
The 26-year-old has been rock-solid for the Citizens, bringing in the kind of effect Virgil van Dijk had on Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool in 2018 as his composure helped power his team to the title.
