STAR half-back George Ford has been a star for England in the World Cup of Rugby.

After a year of marriage, here is all we know about his wife, a restauranteur.

Atdhetare Hoxha

Who is Atdhetare Hoxha? 

29-year-old restaurant owner Atdhetare Hoxha is married to 30-year-old rugby player George Ford.

Atdhetare, who left the Kosovo conflict when he was 4 years old, first arrived in the UK as a refugee in 1999.

Atdhetare’s father, who left behind a full existence in Kosovo, began working as a pot wash in restaurants in order to provide for his family.

Atdhetare always wanted to operate her own restaurant, and in early 2020, she opened Sorella, an Italian eatery in Saddleworth, Greater Manchester, fulfilling her ambition.

The Royton restauranteurs, who also own Mazzo and Vicino, have four restaurants under their belt.

Prior to founding Sorella, Atdhetare worked in a hair shop and attempted her hand at trading.

How did George Ford meet Atdhetare Hoxha? 

After dating for a few years, George Ford, the fly-half for the Sale Sharks, was married to fiancée Atdhetare Hoxha on August 15, 2022.

How the couple got together is unknown.

Ford posted a photo of the wedding on Instagram, with the caption: “One year today, happy anniversary @atdhetarehoxha ❤️ can’t wait for what the future holds. I love you ❤️”.

Atdhetare also posted some wedding snaps on the anniversary, writing: “I can’t believe it’s 1 year today, I am so lucky to have married this beautiful person inside and out @george_fordy many more special memories to come I love you ????????”.

Which teams has George Ford played for?

In November 2009, George Ford began his professional career with the Leicester Tigers, shattering Owen Farrell’s record as the youngest Rugby Union player to make his debut.

Ford arrived to Bath in 2013 following two years of service with Leeds Carnegie, where he remained until 2017.

Ford returned to Leicester and played 88 games there.

Ford joined the Sale Sharks, his current squad, in 2022.

Ford has 86 caps since making his international debut for England.

Ford’s debut at the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France has been spectacular thus far. On September 9, despite being down a man, he played the “game of his life” against Argentina, which resulted in a 27-0 triumph.

In Marseille, the fly-half won man of the match after scoring three outstanding drop goals.

Despite inspiring the side to the incredible victory against Argentina last month, Ford is expected to be benched by the England team now that Farrell is back in the mix.
