Christoph Daum may look like a boring 58-year-old German with a mustache, but the Club Brugge manager has a history peppered with hilarity and debauchery. In the early 90s he lost his job as VfB Stuttgart coach after illegally fielding a fourth foreign player in a European Cup match against Leeds — the game had to be replayed and Stuttgart lost. As Bayer Leverkusen coach in 1996, the German press accused him taking cocaine with prostitutes. He sent hair samples to the authorities to prove he did not take drugs, and when the samples showed he had used cocaine, he insisted it wasn't his hair. Only later did he sheepishly admit to his crime.

Bild reports that the irrepressible manager has now been interviewed by the German edition of Playboy, and Felipe Baloy's favorite periodical asked him who he would like to be for 24 hours. His first answer was a "top heart surgeon," and he immediately followed up by admitting his feminine aspirations:

"I would love to be a woman for 24 hours so that I can really understand them. [I am attracted to] The visual attributes of a woman's eyes, face, breasts, legs, buttocks and her charisma."

Far from a day-long exploration of gender equality or the human condition, it sounds more like he just wants to have sex with a woman for 24 hours.

Regardless of gender, Christoph Daum is sexy and he knows it. See proof below...
