Four players from the German NT (plus Dennis Aogo, who failed to make the Euro 2012 squad) appear on four different German GQ covers in June: Mario Götze & Dennis Aogo (to be circulated in Northern Germany), Manuel Neuer (East Germany), Bastian Schweinsteiger (South Germany) and Mats Hummels (the luckiest part – West Germany).
Which cover do you hold to the hottest esteem Kickettes?
Retired German footballer, Lothar Matthäus, did his best to act natural whilst filming scenes for his upcoming reality show early yesterday morning.
If you’ve been blissfully unaware of what’s been happening in Lothar’s life, consider yourself lucky.
The backstory is: because Lothar’s repeated misfortunes both on and off the field have been closely monitored by the German media, the 50-year-old’s post-pitch notoriety largely stems from him being the butt of the their jokes.
So from the four time divorcee’s perspective – along with his Polish girlfriend, an underwear model 23 years his junior – a multipart docu-soap gives him the best shot at repairing his tarnished public image.
Can anyone say “midlife crisis?” How ’bout in German?
Despite appearances, it’s all above board and not remotely under-the-counter in a brown paper bag. In fact, it’s Sami Khedira and Lena Gercke’s GQ shoot, which appears in the latest edition of the German version of the mag. This is actually one of the less steamy shots – others include ‘in bed with Sami and Lena’ plus a very fetching one of Sami in a smart dressing gown. Which we know you’ve been desperate to see.
