When googling this week’s feature, Arsenal midfielder, Mikel Arteta, you will get the following top three suggestions: Mikel Arteta twitter, Mikel Arteta fifa13, Mikel Arteta injury. It is understandable that anyone would want to find out his twitter account (@m8arteta, by the way), then there is the never-ending sliding tackle glitch from FIFA 13 and finally his recent calf strain that kept the 30-year-old Spanish footballer out of play for three weeks.
I like to think he’s a pretty hardworking guy who has played for everyone and I mean everyone – from Paris St Germain, Rangers FC, Real Sociedad, an Everton loan and finally Arsenal FC. Despite all of that, he has not been called up to play for Spain but let’s not get down about that. Wait, sorry guys…I got sidetracked for a moment…I’m getting there, honest! The real travesty of this entire Mikel Arteta business is that no where in the google search does anyone request shirtless photos of the man. Outrage! Ring the alarm! But I promise that there is some muscle in this feature and now onto what we’ve all been waiting for…
Mikel likes to keep warm and I’m totally fine with this…but we are called Midweek Muscles so I can’t tell if he’s got any in this photo…
Mikel at Arsenal training, once again wearing too many clothes here but it is England and I’m sure it is freezing.
I’m a fan of casual Mikel. I’m also a fan of Mikel being shirtless but we’re getting there…I promise!
Mikel looking damper while out on the town shopping. And look! He’s a graduate of the “How to wear a scarf” school! Some people never learn *cough* Landon Donvan *cough*
Here is Mikel during a training session with Everton. I know you must all be thinking *words words* thighs *words words*
Finally! Thank you, Mikel Arteta…I feel we have been on a journey to get to this moment and you have given our readers what they came here for.
Be sure to check in here at Aerys Soccer every Wednesday for a new Midweek Muscles pick!
