I am not a Chelsea fan and I don’t support the German National team. Let me add that I am fearfully and wonderfully made so this is not a post about me being sad about my body features.

So athletes go through very rigorous trainings and eat healthy to maintain their body, it is definitely a chore. Yeah people have taken a piss at me having the height that 6 packs would nicely sit on but wasting it. Na belle I get I no kill person abeg.

Michael Ballack wouldn’t make top 50 of my all time favourite footballers ever but he has something I truly admire. He has a build that would suit someone of my height (6 ft 3 inches). His carriage is somewhat menacing but super cool. He looks like a bully but deep inside an all round great individual (I guess).

The 44 year old Ballack played for the German National Team 98 times scoring 42 goals with a club career cutting across Kaiserlautern, Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich and Chelsea. He was a good player no doubt,vplaying at the 2002 and 2006 World Cups in Korea/Japan and his home country Germany.



  1. Yet an example of someone who thrived because (or in spite?) of playing almost everywhere through the middle in the course of his career – CB, DM, AM, SS.
