Stoke striker Jese Rodriguez has announced he has split from his girlfriend Aurah Ruiz amid continuing difficulties with their baby son's health.

Jese confirmed the break-up on Twitter but the bad blood continued as Ruiz said 'you failed us at the worst moment of our lives.'

Their son, Nyan, was born prematurely last June and has been in hospital in Gran Canaria ever since. Ruiz has previously publicly accused Jese of going 'a month and a half without seeing him', and heading out with friends rather than be with his family.

They had appeared to patch up their relationship but the split was confirmed by the former Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain striker.

Jese said in a statement: 'Through this communique I want to let you know that unfortunately my relationship with Aurah has finished. I prefer to do this publicly in order to avoid speculation.

'I want to ask respect for her, my children, family and me personally, since we have had very difficult and delicate moments for our son Nyan, who, thank God, after his recent operation, is in the recovery phase, where he progresses favourably and we hope that very soon he will leave hospital.

'I wish that both Aura and I and my children can live a happy and calm life.'

Despite the tone of Jese's statement, Ruiz was angered and hit out at him for making a statement on social media, saying he had put his football career before Nyan, and claiming that her family had had to give up their jobs to care for him.

'Thanks to my family because without them none of this will be possible.'

Jese, 24, got off to a flying start after joining Stoke on loan from PSG last summer, scoring the winning goal against Arsenal on August 19 but he has featured only sporadically since amid his difficult personal situation. 

Stoke have given him time off to spend with his family, but he looks set to leave for boyhood club Las Palmas, where he will be closer to his family in the Canary Islands. The Spaniard has two more children with another mother.

Ruiz, 28, is a model who became famous through a dating show on Spanish TV.
