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.

LeonardoLeo’s pre-season tour isn’t going as well as planned (0 for 5…but who’s counting).

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?

LeonardoWe can’t confirm or deny that he’s attached – only that he’s on record as saying he wants to bring “attractive attacking” football to AC Milan.  Ah yes, a man after our own hearts.

So weigh in, Kickettes, and please tell us: would you?

  2. Didi says:

    yes yes yes

    He's very nummy. When I saw him in Baltimore against Chelsea, he was even lovely in person.

  5. aristeia says:

    Yes, all day, every day. Like Blair and Tammy said, to see him in person is to know his true perfection. He is my current Milan obsession.

  6. Fer_Lahm says:

    Four words for him: YES! YES! and YES!

  7. bubbly_cheryl says:

    Ms Kickette, he sounds yummy!

  8. zo-tl says:

    Can’t believe I’m saying this about the coach of my favourite team and Ancelloti’s successor, but here’s a hushed up ‘yes’! It’s the hair… and the cheesily cute grin!

  9. Victoria says:

    oh my, YUM

  10. Hanna says:

    Hell to the YES!  Can’t believe you guys have only just ‘discovered’ him.  I’ve been in love with this man ever since I saw him as a pundit on the BBC during the last world cup, in Germany.  Those dreamy eyes, gorgeous smile, sexy accent…what is a helpless girl to do?  <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue laugh" style="border:0;" />

  11. He used to look so good in an AC MILAN kit, and he looks even better as their suave manager.

  12. Liv1229 says:

    Yes please!!  He is like the statue of David, perfection!

  13. Christina V says:

    Well he is hot. Really charming. So yes.

  14. Sabrina says:

    Of course I would.

  15. lily says:

    YES YES YES!!!

    is he married??

  16. cibele says:

    He’s really, really sweet. And well articulated, smart. I really hope he does well at Milan, the guy deserves it. He played in my team back in the day (drove the girls crazy, but had tough competition with Ra

  17. Anoniempje says:

    I would. Without thinking twice, maybe even without thinking at all.

  18. Lana says:

    Definitly, would

  19. Kile says:

    I also saw him in Baltimore.  That whole match was a major WIN! 

    He is a fox, p.s.

    Yes, please.

  20. Boston Red says:

    I think he's very good looking, but he's just not my bag, baby.

  21. Ella says:


  22. TammyV says:

    Having seen him in person… pics do not do him any justice

  23. Woohoo says:

    Yes of course <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" /> Resistance is futile…

  24. kell says:

    the question is who wouldn"t a man that look like that and with loads of experience, who wouldn’t is the question here really.

  25. violet-strawberri says:

    Hotness! Another cutie to add to the manager list! After Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klinsman…!

  26. Gaucho Kiki says:

    I think yes, although I'm not sure I would with a man who has someone else tie his tie for him. Although this might not mean he doesn't know how, just that he has money to pay someone to tie it for him. Talk about a sweet gig!

  27. Lolinha says:

    Oh I'd make Leo growl… LOL Never mind the age difference. But I'm a little partial to my Brazilians. I read he is, or was married to a woman named Beatriz and has three kids. In other words, major buzz kill. What is it with these guys (Pep included)? Why don't they wear their friggin' wedding rings?!

  28. BarcaGirl says:

    Delish. Helloooooo AC Milan. Yum.

  29. Dreamgirl says:

    Yes, please.

  30. LoveLamps says:

    Yes. That is all.

    Oh, the hair! Absolutely.

  34. winnieramos says:

    i definitely WOULD! woooooww. what is with all these hot managers? they are starting to give the players a run for their money! …but Pepe Guardiola is still leading in that race.

  35. Liz (Mrs. Vucinic) says:

    Ohhhhh yeah. No question about it. That man is even more attractive in person.

  36. kenita says:

    i totally absolutely completely would

  37. suzie says:

    Yes, yes and oh god yes. He has a gorgeous accent when speaks in english. He did a bit of punditry for the beeb (I think) during the euro’s and I just swooned whenever he spoke. He knew his stuff too.
