What has Yeo said about raising three footballing sons?

Yeo admitted that bringing up three boys who refer to her as 'super mum' was tough but she had to be strict with them.

And despite her late ex-husband Antoine having a good bond with the brothers, Yeo solely raised them from young.

Speaking to, Yeo said: "It wasn't easy, but when you have boys and you have to raise them by yourself you have to be very strict with them. You must be strict and gentle at the same time.

"I played a lot of different sports but eventually chose football. We created a team and I was captain of our women's team,"

"Maybe this was genetically passed to my children, I don't know."

At the age of 16, her twin boys moved to Spain to join Celta Vigo's academy while Paul was in Le Havre's devlopment.

The super mum added: "One weekend I would go and visit Paul, and the next weekend I’d visit the twins," Yeo said. "I would go to give them support, because it’s not easy leaving your family.

"Every time I left them I would give them this advice: ‘You left your country to reach a goal, so do your best to reach this goal.’"
