The TTO: Javier Zanetti v Zlatan Ibrahimovic

We know. We took the obvious route. But when you think of Inter Milan, you think of the big guns: Javier Zanetti and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Don’t their names just roll off the tongue?
Not to worry – there are more important things to do today besides practicing saying “Ibrahimovic” five times fast. We invite you to slip on your favourite silk and cashmere robe of judgment and get to examining our thightastic choices for the latest Thigh-Off.
Javier – more commonly referred to as Pupi around most parts, is the elder statesman – he’s a 35-year-old defender, and captain of the Inter squad. He was born in Buenos Aries and is the most capped Argentinian player ever. Pupi’s comfortable exploring his more creative side via song. Sure, Mr. Z could use a touch of the good ‘ol lip plumper, but the amount of bulging muscle that he brings to the pitch outweighs any collagen concerns. FYI, When Pupi first joined Inter, he didn’t even own a suit. Probably because it was impossible to get enough fabric to stretch across his legs.
27-year-old Zlatan is quite the international man-about-town. He’s a striker that plays for the Swedish national team, and is of Bosnian and Croatian descent. What else? Well, he has a bank balance that could single-handledly bring the global recession to an end. His sense of self-esteem is fully large and in charge. He has the “Ibrahimovic code” tattooed on his arms. Indeed, Ibrah is many things to many people – from an object of lust to an object of great arrogance. But you can never say he doesn’t work for his thigh coverage. Because, let’s face it, he knows how to flex and stretch those money makers for the cameras.
Who do you think deserves the win?
Congratulations to Vincente, who walked all over David Silva in last week’s Valencia Thigh Off. Next week, Portsmouth!
