Yoann Gourcuff, a French midfielder for Bordeaux, celebrated his team’s victory over Valenciennes in style this weekend. Rawr! Running around pantsless matches well with this interview that he gave not long after he arrived in Bordeaux on loan from AC Milan:
Gourcuff:I am someone quite mysterious. I like to keep things to myself and not reveal too much. (…)
Gold FM: Is this a form of protection?
Gourcuff: Absolutely, I am really loose on the field or when I’m in an intimate circle with my family and friends. When you’re a public figure, it is important to pay attention to your image, remaining discreet.
Indeed. He’s very restrained and discreet, shying away from human eyes like an endangered species in New Zealand. Why, no one will ever see him in bikini-brief underwear but his intimate circle of thousands and thousands of paying fans.
