Hottie or Nottie: Juan Toja
Let’s get an opinion poll on this one, Kickettes.
Juan Toja is a 23-year-old, 6’1” Columbian midfielder who plays for Steaua Bucharesti in the Romanian leagues. No, we’ve never heard of them either. But when a photo of a footie player in a pirate costume shows up in our inbox, we will google whatever/wherever/whomever we need to in order to post it.
Anyhoo, we quite like the look of Mr. Toja, formerly of FC Dallas in the MLS. Sure, he’s a little rough around the edges and looks like he should be stepping off of a tour bus with smoke pouring out of the doors, three exhausted but satiated groupies on one arm and a guitar covered with yellow lightning bolts draped over the other. But is that such a bad thing?
This mullet, by the way, has been through various lengths, widths and layering techniques over the years and Juan continues to wear it with pride. His commitment to long hair has inspired his teammates (and even stadium security) to adopt mullet-wigs in his honour. One has to respect that sort of hair power.
Check JT out on this video, defending his hair choices and scoring some great goals. Then let us know if he falls into the hottie or nottie category for you, Kickettes.
