Nina Kristin: Meet The Playboy Model Turned Player Agent


Nina went to Hollywood and now she’s going back to school. Kind of.

Here’s a storyline we don’t have the pleasure of reading everyday: a German Playboy model is currently working to obtain the necessary Bundesliga licence to be a registered Players’ Agent.

Even more admirable is Nina Kristin’s reasons for pursuing this career path – the 28-year-old says she merely wants to “take care” of the DFB’s top talent in the sake of their best interests.

“I have many friends who are footballers and complain that they are being ripped off. The need someone who is there for them.”

And by “someone who is there for them,” the pert pin-up really means, “someone who offers their heads large breasticles to sleep on.”

Actually, we shouldn’t mock, Kickettes. Nina’s obviously hoping for marriage here. She’ll need our sympathy some day when none of it works out.

As we head into one of the more exciting parts of the footie season, let’s take a moment to think of the many players who can only sit injured and frustrated on the sidelines.

From Jack Wilshere to Chris Smalling, through Martin Caceres and Julio Baptista, the list of cuties without a presence on the pitch offers plenty to choose from. Naturally, we’re waiting in the wings ready to don our nurse’s uniforms once we get the go ahead, but rehabilitating the injury-cursed back to health can’t be a one-staff show.

There’s more than enough players in plaster needing your tender love and care to go around – some may even comply with your backless hospital gown requests. So who gets your vote for the hottest hurtie on the treatment table?

Mark your day planners, Kickettes: new Ligue 1 season starts 10th August, the EPL & La Liga on 18th August and the Bundesliga & Serie A on the 25th.

As we’re sure you’ll understand, this is a tremendously busy time in the office. But in between our experiments in national flag nail art and undetected desk sleeping (neither have been particularly successful), we’ve compiled a list of things we’re looking forward to across the European leagues.

Read, digest, then add a few of your own, why dontcha?
