Sami Khedira Pimp Post 1 of ?

I officially declare this Sami Khedira appreciation week! Isn't he a gorgeous, gorgeous man?
Well-spoken, too.


He needs more love. He needs more fic. His Özil bromance is legendary. So instead of wearing down my thumbs refreshing the kink meme, I am pimping him to you with background info. As a recent fan, it also gives me the opportunity to put my research to good use. Let's start with this interview, in which you will learn a bit about his past. (Thanks to skippytoad for English help, and to e_vision for the pic of Sami's family.)

Translator's note: All pictures added by me. This interview was made in 2008, a good year before Sami was to captain the U-21 team to winning the European Championship. At the time, Sami was still playing for VfB Stuttgart. And no, the ones with short hair are NOT from his time at U-21 ;-P.

There was a point I almost lost hope

Much more than just football on his mind: a talk with Sami Khedira

At only 21 years old, he is already considered a possible candidate for leading the VfB Stuttgart team, and Sami Khedira’s qualities aren’t limited to the football field. In our summer interview, he talks about his childhood memories of Tunisia, problems with integration and with a serious injury.

The Sun lies, again... nothing's new


That was the title that displayed The Sun today, claiming they could reveal that "the Manchester City skipper made three secret visits to a psychiatrist after being allowed back to Argentina to see his family."

"The City hitman, separated from wife Vanesa, is dating Argentine actress Brenda Asnicar, 19, whose career prevents her from joining him in England.

Tevez is so upset about the situation that a close friend insisted: "Carlos is on the brink.

"He's really hurting and has begged his mind guru: 'Tell me why I am feeling like this?'

"He normally eats, sleeps and drinks football but his mind's in another place at the moment. It's tearing him apart being thousands of miles away from his children."

The Sun

Tevez's manager, however, came out to say that none of this was true, and that Carlos was very hurt by all these rumours.

"He obviously misses his daughters, like any father would in the same situation. But inplying there's more than that, that he's suffering some type of problem that needs professional help, is simply a lie."

Croatia: GoalKeeper Antoni Milina Scores From Kick Out

I know many of you were jokingly advocating an Iker Casillas hat-trick... WELL.  Might not be *that* impossible, after all... if this guy did it once, I can totally imagine Iker doing it three times!!! (preferably while playing in the NT though, LOL)

As usual, mods can delete this if NO1CURR. xDDD
