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?

imageAside from his talent on the pitch, Juan is an interesting option because he is so very unashamedly proud of his mullet. 

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.

  36. aristeia says:

    He looks like a member of a Colombian hair metal band. Hehe. If this was 1986, I would be all over that. ;)

  37. Becca says:

    Ohhh I Do Like A Man Dresssed As A pirate, Especially a Footballer :P .. Im Not Sure on The Hair, Long Doesnt Do It For Me.

  38. Stephanie?sBojan says:

    *is saddened at mullet* Umm, enough ballers in my life have currently decided that the mullet needs to be their hairstyle of choice for some odd reason, I don’t need to add another one! No! Hottie absolutely not, just no! and I won’t even consider it until the mullet is changed. Mulllets are currently devastating two of my favorite Ballers and makes their pics a lot less attractive. I won’t stand for yet another baller to come into my life only to be saddened by their hair choice. Mullets are ruining my life!

  39. The Fourth Official says:

    Well, if I couldn’t get the real Jack Sparrow, Juan would do in a pinch, but only if he keeps the pirate costume on.

  40. boo says:

    pic is nice and all, but i’ve actually seen him play (aye sweaty, no makeup etc.) so not interesting and way too much hair (and i’m one of those who diggs the ramos so..)
