Yoann Gourcuff: Face To Face, Finally

The story of this weekend goes to us meeting Yoann Gourcuff, a day everyone at Kickette had been hoping, praying and taking bets for.
Whilst drinking ourselves into a adult beverage-induced stupor at Red Bulls Arena during the Trophee Des Champions, we happened to bump into Lyon’s resident cutie-pants, where he was kicking back with a few of his teammates as the on-pitch action played out. After quickly scoffing down our concession stand treats, we successfully ensconced YoGo into a quiet corner for a chat.
Sadly, he barely budged, although we did briefly discuss his hair (he didn’t bother with product that day even though he probably should have) and one of his and our favourite things (cologne, which he insisted smells best and “really permeates better after a good training session and shower”). When poked about Karine Ferri, Gourcuff smirked, mumbled incoherent French and sent the rest of our day into a downward stroke by slowly making his way back to his seat.
We followed him, attempting to cling on to our 15 minutes of fame while acting like we weren’t desperate for another whiff of his neck, but it wasn’t meant to be.
Our drunken romantic approaches are rarely appreciated, Kickettes. But to be spurned by our beloved Lashes? Our going out pouts may never recover.
