Italian footballers, over the years, have never failed to mesmerize the audience with their stunning show-stopper like presence. Take Claudio Marchisio for instance. When the Italian is not setting his teammates up for goals, you will see him setting up some serious fashion trends.
Right from Gianluigi Buffon to Stephan El Shaarawy, these Italian men know how to get their vogue game up, and a certain Daniele De Rossi never stays behind. Known for his absolute rugged style of play, this bearded beast has dedicated his entire career to Roma. But as they say, “being both soft and hard is a combination very few have mastered.”
While you are well and truly aware of his indestructible persona, his distinctive choices remain unknown equity to many. A fan of Coldplay, Oasis and The Rolling Stones, the Roma captain is an avid reader and a fan of classic films. And when you think about it, you can easily envisage him landing a role in any classic, mythological or even a mafia film, to say the least.
Footballers and their parallelism to the Greek Gods have time and again been personified to an entirely new dimension and to say this man, right here, falls under the same stamp would be an utter understatement. Unlike the modern footballers, it seems De Rossi hardly gives any darn to the fashion trends, but the way he styles himself takes a beating.
Take AS Roma’s association with their fashion partner Hugo Boss for that matter. The blue-eyed Greek demigod stood out while donning a sharp dark blue shirt under a waistcoat followed by a navy blue suit and a silk tie. Nothing went unnoticed there. The way his portrait was captured, it seemed like he is either auditioning for the next James Bond film or for a superhero role or even an Italian mafia character for that matter. He’s that perfect.
And we say why not. Who doesn’t like a hero or even a villain with that kind of stubble? For me personally, I would absolutely love him on the silver screen. You see, beauty is not always looking dashing. Sometimes the way you carry yourself can be a charmer in itself, and this Italian beast is a perfect specimen of it.
Right from his devil-may-care beam to his beasty nature on the field, there is this charisma which is never a bygone factor in his persona. And this is exactly what makes him stand out from rest. There’s nothing vague about the Italian really, as his personality of being an absolute dreamboat is simply a majestic sight to die for…
A dying breed of footballers, maybe…
