Real Madrid Pre-Season Training: Wet & Wild

Real Madrid boys wearing speedos playing waterpolo

Image source: Alvaro Abeloa’s Facebook page.

If we’ve learned anything from our years of covering ‘ballers in pre-season training, it’s that they usually provide the randomly sexually suggestive activities for our viewing pleasure.

While training in Los Angeles, the staff of Real Madrid have ever so nicely fulfilled one of our requests* to have the lads strip down and hosed off, cleverly disguising their rouse as water polo. Aside from the fact that Los Blancos are as close to nekkid as we’ve seen them, other musings we made about this aquatic photo op include:

1. We bet you were as disappointed as we were upon learning that San Iker and Alvaro Arbeloa were not sporting their birthday suits. Totes bummer.

2. There is serious fist pumping action going on to the left and Raul Albiol(?) is leading the charge.

3. Kaka is desperately trying to get his paws on The Ramos™. Down boy!

4. Xabi manages to pull off the funky cap look quite nicely.

5. Based on facial expressions only, we want to hang out with Marcelo.

*We can’t confirm if they’ve actually received our list of requests, but we’re assuming they did.

    Girls , Choose and Pick !!!!

  11. Erica says:

    Ok, seriously, not sure if it's a shadow, or weird trick of light in the water, or ACTUALLY MARCELO'S PEEN, but there is definitely something going on in & around his very loose shorts area.

    Please folks, tell me I'm not imagining things.

  12. Gladys says:

    How is it that they still manage to look hot in those granny caps?!

  13. JNas says:

    The world is a little brighter with Marcelo in it.

  14. Lotte says:

    Hahaha! It don't matter how good looking you are, those caps makes you look ridiculous! There is nothing like water to turn grown ups into kids again. Very fun picture!

  15. nea says:

    thanks to them, we now know it is possible that water polo athletes could have good hair. i mean this people are gorgeous without the cap.

  16. Green 4 says:

    Ramos…… always looks good.!!!!! Love this picture***

  17. chay says:

    cuteness and oh my yum yum yum all rolled into one!

  18. bimpossible says:

    the one beside rafael varane isn't raul albiol. it's joselu, i think.

  19. xoWinnie says:

    oh man, our Real boys are so cute and fun!
    i honestly couldn't love this team any more than i already do if i tried!

    Hala Madrid! ♥

  20. Sophie says:

    This may be the best thing I have ever seen. In my life. Ever. The hats just top it off – I can't get over them. Can I just point out 1) Alvaro's still got the thumbs up. Nothing can make him lose his thumbs-up composure. 2) Xabi's face. WITH THAT HAT. 3) Sergio holding Kaka's hand while 4) Kaka tries to strangle him (or something). 5) Iker's paleness in a sea of tan. 6) Marcelo.
    I fear we will never see anything like this ever again, so we must savour this photo.

  21. Stefania says:

    Thats the funniest and sexiest thing I have ever seen!!

  22. lissette says:

    iker's about 2 shades lighter than everyone!! he needs to spend sometime with cristiano, cuz boy does that man know how to tan!!

  23. ChristinaLFP says:

    Kaka holding on to Sergio's hand. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i love my team

  24. Zahara says:

  25. [...] I’VE HEARD THEY PLAY A VERSION CALLED ‘RONALDO POLO.’ Real Madrid hit the pool. Why would they have water polo caps with them in LA? // Kickette [...]

  26. CRC says:

    Raúl Albiol is not even there…

  27. Por dior says:

    Look at marcelo just can´t help but laugh ,every time i see him he´s always having fun …

    • Deb S says:

      Isn't he just adorable?! How great would it be to have him as a teammate or friend….never a dull moment!

  28. Kristine says:

    Although we look forward to the naked and lounging (Sergio and Zlatan) pics. : ) This pic was was such a delightful surprise. The manlove is so endearing and adorkable! No other team could pull this off!

    Love our guys!

    4 MORE DAYS!

  29. essjay says:

    Naaawh, they're all so cute!!!
    The bromance, the water, the half nekkidness… Perfection!

  30. owj says:

    xabi looks ridiculous! i love ridiculous. ;)

  31. tia says:

    it sure is worth it to 'like' arbeloa's facebook page.

  32. Bri says:

    The day the Ramos discovered twitpics should really be considered a Kickette holiday.

  33. Sarah, Madrid says:

    Best team pic for me, should make it an official one.

    Really! How can you not love this club, HALA MADRID!

  34. Kat says:

    I love, love, love this picture and is probably one of my favorites. It's absolutely adorkable! But it still leaves a little room for some, ummmm, perviness. Hahaha. Case in point: What is Iker wearing? He looks like he's in briefs! Which is not a bad thing, of course.

    I love that they're all so huggy. They look like they have an awesome time together.Although I would be smiling, too, if work consists of playing around in a pool.

  35. A to L says:

    Real Madrid have some of the best pre-season training schedules. Also were is CR7, Ozil, Khedira, Benzema, etc?
