How 'sexiest' label has backfired on soccer player Ana Maria Markovic

Although soccer pro Ana Maria Markovic is grateful for the positive press she’s received, there’s one adjective she isn’t exactly fond of.

Markovic, who has been called the “world’s most beautiful footballer,” expressed in a recent interview with the German publication 20min that she wasn’t pleased with a “sexiest” descriptor in an unnamed piece.

“I liked the articles that called me the most beautiful footballer or one of the most beautiful because it makes me happy to hear that I am beautiful,” Markovic said, according to UK’s Daily Star.
