We watch sports for the thrill, excitement and passion we feel for our favorite teams. But sometimes; sex appeal is a huge part of which athletes we end up rooting for. Good enough athletes could become stars just based on the sheer force of their sexiness and star players could become very famous celebrities with enough good looks.
Some athletes are astonishingly good looking and still relevant to their sports. They are sexy because of their abs, smiles, eyes, hair, pecs and biceps, fashion choices, bubbly senses of humor, extreme success but also because of their charity works. They each have a unique brand of sexiness that grabbed my attention and even most of yours. But let’s not forget this is my own list; doesn’t necessarily have to tally with yours.
So who are my Sexiest Top 6 Ball Players Alive?
The 25 year old German is acclaimed for his finesse and improvisation as an attacking midfielder wearing #10. He ranked 1st in assists in major European and domestic competitions and La Liga in 2011 and 2012 respectively. Whilst still in Real Madrid, Mourinho once stated that ‘Ozil is unique. There is no copy of him- even a bad one’. Coming from him? That’s big. He now plays for Arsenal and we hope to see more of that uniqueness in him especially after his country won the 2014 FIFA world cup.
He is not only sexy but philanthropic as he donated his 2014 world cup winnings to pay for 23 sick Brazilian children to have surgery as a “personal thank you for the hospitality of the people of Brazil”. Sexy, famous, successful and humane; what more could you ask for? Whether he is on the field doing what he does best or on an island showing off his sexy body he remains one of our sexiest.
