Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nacer Chadli has posed naked for December's issue of 'Cosmopolitan' to help raise awareness for male cancer.

The London Evening Standard carries quotes from the 25-year-old, who stressed the importance of looking after your body in an exclusive interview with the women's fashion magazine.

Chadli, who has been in fine form for Spurs this season, netting five goals and contributing one assist in nine Premier League appearances, insisted he was not nervous about the revealing photo-shoot but admitted he was anxious to see what the reaction would be from his team-mates at White Hart Lane.

"As a footballer, my body's my tool – so I have to take care of it," he explained. "I'm pretty happy with the way I look and what my body is capable of.

"Sometimes I'd like more muscle or bigger legs, but you can never be perfect."

Perfect is the last word that would be used to describe the Belgium international's debut season in north London, but under the new tutelage of Mauricio Pochettino, Chadli seems to have thrived in a new high-press system.

His fine form in 2014/15 is a far cry from the disappointing run of performances under the former guidance of Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood, and Tottenham fans will be hoping that his improved contribution continues long into the current campaign.

"My weakness is definitely chocolate – Belgian obviously."

Asked specifically about any downfall in his existing regime, Chadli spoke openly about the sweet tooth that he often has to keep control of, particularly during the playing season.

"My weakness is definitely chocolate – Belgian obviously," he added. "I've never posed naked before, but I'm not nervous – maybe I should wait and see what the reaction's like!

"It's an important cause – cancer affects lots of families, so I hope it gets people talking."

Raising awareness

Chadli's reveal-all photo shoot is sure to raise a few eyebrows in the Premier League, but he'll be hoping that it's his performances on the pitch that will continue to capture the headlines in the months ahead, as the former FC Twente star attempts to help spark a significant improvement to Tottenham's largely disappointing season so far.

Pochettino's men currently lie eighth with 14 points after their opening ten games, as the impact of long midweek excursions in the Europa League continue to play havoc with the side's domestic form.

The Argentine coach has continued to rotate his senior squad in the hope of avoiding fatigue creeping in, but already appears to be struggling to keep pace with the pace setters at the top of the table.
