The Daily Drool: Blerim Džemaili

1 Sep

Midfielder Blerim is a Swiss footballer of Albanian descent who was born in Yugoslavia. He started his career in 2003 with FC Zürich and was chosen as captain in 2005 – one of the youngest captains in Swiss footy history.

He has made 13 appearances for the Swiss National Team since 2006.

He’s hoping to return to the pitch in September-October. Poor boo should be wrapped in bubble wrap every March just to be safe. One thing I adore about Stuart is his great sense of humor. Check out this picture of him volunteering at a hospital in Houston:
