Got the stamina to keep up with Swick’s favourite footballers?
Fun fact about Melbourne’s bona fide party starter, SWICK: He loves a good kick of football (soccer for you plebs out there) at the park, perhaps a cheeky game of futsal, and probably was very excited by the Euro 2016 festivities.
So we just thought, fuck it, let’s see who Swick would love to share a pitch with. He was kind enough to oblige to this strange request. So he’s taken time out of his day touring his new EP, Stamina, to share with us his thoughts on his favorite footballers.
1. Paul Pogba
“Obviously I had to include Pogba. I think he also just set the new world record transfer fee so obviously he is a bad boy and needs to be in my top 5. He always has the coolest hairstyles too. Watch this mad goal – it pretty much explains why I love him”
2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic
“Ibra.. The King.. The God! I love Zlatan. I just finished reading his autobiography, was a fun read. He is such a character, you should read it! He always has the best quotes and scores the coolest goals, like Kung-Fu style. He is just sick. Here are two of my favourite goals he has scored.”
3. Antoine Griezmann
“Cool Guy. Love the way he dribbles & he is a sick finisher. All the players I’ve listed are I guess, but Griezmann iz mad. I wish he could have won the Euro for France but at least he was Top Scorer. Here is a video of him doing his Drake Hotline Bling inspired celebration.”
4. Alexis Sanchez
“Another cool guy and an Arsenal player. Of course I was going to include one. Love watching him play, he is so good and I’m so glad we have signed him. He has made such a difference for the team, and he never stops running and going for it. You can also see whenever he has to get subbed off, he is so angry. He also just won the Copa America too! Here is a video of some of his skills!”
5. Daniel Sturridge
“Studge. Apparently, I was reading he’s making hip-hop beats at the moment and is becoming a music producer. He also started the ‘Sturridge Dance’. Actually miss Sturridge at the moment, he is always injured. It’s always exciting when he gets on the ball. Here is a cool vine of him with Skepta at his show, lol and a video of the dance if you haven’t seen it.”
