A little post-Champions League perving for you on this fine Friday afternoon, Kickettes. Please join us.
Whilst watching his side suffer a 6-1 aggregate battering against Manchester United on Wednesday, our eyes were repeatedly drawn to right back; a position occupied by Japanese international, Atsuto Uchida. Uchida, who was busy being the first Japanese to appear in the semis of the competition while we were leching, also broke fellow cutie countryman Hidetoshi Nakata’s record for being the youngest player to score for Japan a while ago, so we’re pretty sure we’re going to be hearing from him again.
Therefore, we must declare our allegience, people. Does Atsuto’s hot thigh action and petulant little pout put him on your one-to-watch list? Or will his post-goth hairdo inevitably relegate him to bringing up the rear in the race for approval?
