Ruud Gullit looked good to me !

The headline said:

“Don’t mean to be Ruud, Mr Gullit but what happened to your famously toned footballer’s physique?”

In the Daily Mail today they reported about Mr Ruud Gullit the following.   Former Holland international and AC Milan star Ruud Gullit, who was up until recently coach of David Beckham’s soccer team Los Angeles Galaxy, showed off his still impressive soccer skills on Miami Beach.  But that was not all he revealed, as he also displayed a considerable girth while passing on his skills to his seven-year-old son Maxim.

Not keeping up…the fitness regime: Former soccer star Ruud Gullit revealed his considerable girth on Miami Beach as he kicked ball with son Maxim.   Clearly at a loose end since his resignation from LA Galaxy, Gullit appeared to have relaxed his own training regime, and over-indulged over the holiday season as his belly spilled over his shorts as he played on the beach.    Gullit, 46, revealed the rather paunchy look as he gave his son a little one to one training session.

And maybe concern about his paunch was starting to grow, as he seemed to be taking the session rather seriously as he schooled his son – and showed him – the finer points of  ball control.   During his playing days Gullit was praised by ex-Manchester United ace George Best who called him ‘a great player by any standards’.  He said of Gullit: ‘He has all the skills.   ‘He’s not afraid to do things with the ball. And he looks as if he’s enjoying every second of it. By my reckoning that’s what makes him an even better player than Maradona.’

Gullit resigned from LA Galaxy after the team suffered a severe losing streak. He cited ‘personal reasons’ in his decision to quit.  Since leaving Galaxy, the Amsterdam born former player has been popped up as a pundit on Sky, but has not as yet been linked to any new manager roles.   The father of six  married third wife – Estelle Cruijff – the niece of Dutch soccer legend Johan Cruijff – in 2000. As well as son Maxim, they also have a daughter Joëlle.

Despite being 46 and having a slight paunch he still looks good to me.  He is fit and healthy so let it go and embrace the fact that he is more relaxed wit himself.  You go Ruud we think you look hot!
