Basel – He’s been through the toughest months a father can imagine. But now ex-football star Michael Ballack (45) to finally have a reason to smile again.
Because our former “Capitano” is said to be newly in love. His new one should come from the circle of friends of his son Emilio († 18), who died last year.
As the picture reported, Michael is now in a relationship with Sophia Schneiderhan (21). The two were photographed together at “Art Basel”. The beauty is a whopping 24 years younger than the native of Görlitz and works as a model. The couple had recently been seen kissing and holding hands in Berlin.
Sophia measures 1.78 meters, has the perfect dimensions of 81-68-95, dark blonde hair. When the ex-Bayern player looks into her eyes, he sees a dreamy mix of green and brown. At least that’s what the website of the renowned agency says “Louisa models” to whom she is under contract.

According to information from picture the two found each other in the months following Emilio’s death. The middle of his three sons died in a tragic quad accident on August 5, 2021 on the Ballacks’ property in Tróia, Portugal.
While mother Simone (46) was not on site, Michael was in the house at the time of the accident. Emilio wanted to get his quad out of the garage around 2:10 a.m. to drive a friend home.
When he tried to drive the vehicle backwards, the two front wheels are said to have lost grip on the ground, the quad was catapulted a meter into the air and then fell on Emilio. Despite attempts to revive him on site, the 18-year-old died at the scene of the accident.
The Ballacks then received a lot of encouragement not only from Michael’s former clubs Bayern, Leverkusen and Chelsea, but also from the entire circle of friends.
In the meantime, however, Simone’s new marriage to IT entrepreneur Andreas Mecky (48), whom she only married on May 11, 2019, is said to have broken up.
