Would You?: AC Milan’s Leonardo
Like wine, cheese and string instruments, former-players-turned-coaches just get better with age.
AC Milan’s newest club manager/lead stylist Leonardo gives us goose bumps (as do the rest of his ilk -see also: Pep G, Roy Keane).
Not much information is available about this 39-year-old Brazilian so let’s just evaluate the most pertinent evidence together, shall we?
Leonardo, once infamous for unleashing his elbow on a poor, unsuspecting American opponent, has a CV that is sure to impress.
His list of accomplishments include chiseled cheekbones constructed with the same precision as his custom-made Italian leather loafers; his style seems both super-slick and modest and effortless at the same time; and he is in possession of a shiny World Cup winner’s medal from ’94.
Since we’re equal opportunists here at Kickette, we’re willing to pardon this sun lover’s forehead wrinkles in favor of his hair’s uncanny ability to defy gravity. Seriously…we dare you to find a single follicle out of order on his head, chest or eyebrows. Let’s just say his coif makes our split ends weep with jealousy. He’s at Puyol level of volume and strand-strength.
To be fair, the man has other pressing matters. With transfer rumours surrounding Pirlo and Pato, he has the unenviable task of keeping AC Milan’s hotness quota at Dolce & Gabbana calendar-level. Then again, if he sells off some hotties, he stands a chance at scoring his own spread. Christmas in July, anyone?
So weigh in, Kickettes, and please tell us: would you?
