Survey Says: Olivier Giroud Is Ligue 1′s Sexiest Player Of The Year
‘Who, me?’ The reality of being identified as a Level 1 Hottie hits home for Olivier when five hundred rampant Tetu readers (plus a couple of well-informed Kickette staffers) turn up and request unsolicited snuggles. Cheers to @Philby1976 for the tip!
We thought we had the inside track on controversial decisions involving the relative hotness of French players. Luckily, Olivier Giroud has just been voted ‘Sexiest Player Of The Year’ in French mag Tetu, which takes the heat off us while we pretend the Finest Five list isn’t in need of an update for at least another three months.
Since Tetu’s poll went live on the 20th of November, Olivier took the lead and never looked back in the standings. He finished with a strong 33% of the vote, controversially beating out Lyon’s Lisandro Lopez (10%), Lille OSC’s Mathieu Debuchy (7%) and PSG’s Kevin Gameiro (5%). For a full list of results, see here. Before our Kickettes cry foul at the absence of Lashes (you know you’re good at that), you should know that he wasn’t eligible due to his previous reign over this title two years ago. M’kay?
Anyhoo, as the 2011 Sexiest Player of The Year, Olivier gets to assume the position, crown and sash from fellow hottie and France international Adil Rami, who won in 2010.
Dubbed the ‘French David Beckham’ by his own domestic press, we’d just like to remind you that we always knew Giroud was a hot piece of ass. At the ripe age of 25-years-old, he’s got many miles left on his abs that we promise to put to good use at every turn possible.
Damn, it feels good to have at least one of our many ‘stances’ justified by a strong and vocal contingent of males and females alike.
