Millionaire footballers that scored OWN GOALS with their weird fashion

By Abby McHale

JACK Grealish has hit the big time with his £100million transfer to Man City making him the priciest English player ever – but as the 25-year-old showed, he can still look like he’s wearing jumble sale cast-offs.

 

But dodgy fashion is all part of the game.

Sun stylist and TalkSport fashion expert Abby McHale calls foul on footie’s outfit outrages, dishing out yellow cards for mild offenders and red for the worst.

WHERE to begin . . .  Everton player Tom Davies is known for his OTT looks but I wonder if he might not have realised that he had stepped out in his dressing gown on this particular day.

Maybe he couldn’t see straight through his sepia-tinted specs.

GLENN HODDLE and his Spurs and England teammate Chris Waddle wore wet-look jackets with mullet hairstyles in the photoshoot for their Diamond Lights single in 1987.

Sadly their style has not stood the test of time – and nor has their music.

Gareth Bale's cut-off jeans weren't even the worst thing about this outfit

IT seems Gareth Bale got dressed from the wrong ward-robe on this day back in 2013 when he chose a white cardigan, cut-off pedal pusher-style jeans and a man bag.

Gareth, then 24, may have been preened to perfection – just look at those sideburns – after returning to his hotel following a training session for Real Madrid, but this outfit is in a white state.

WHILE Jack Grealish has been compared to Paul Gascoigne for his natural flair on the pitch, it seems they share a taste for flamboyant fashion, too.

Check out this garish suit that Gazza wore in 1996. He may have been playing for Glasgow Rangers at the time – but that doesn’t excuse him dressing up like a bagpipe.

THEY might look like the Men from Del Monte, but Liverpool’s hottest players Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and Jamie Redknapp bravely wore these white Armani suits to the 1996 FA Cup final against Manchester United – and were dubbed the Liverpool Spice Boys.

What a fashion statement. And then they went on to lose the match 1-0 and became a laughing stock.

IT’S not just top-tier players who try to push the fashion boundaries, as Sheffield United star Oli McBurnie shows in this brown tracksuit with primary blue and red chevrons across it.

He ought to pull his socks up when it comes to his outfit choices . . .  but not literally, like he has done here.

WAYNE ROONEY showed the thigh is the limit with these short shorts, sucking on an extremely large lollipop while on holiday with Coleen in 2003.

OK, he was only 17, but he looked more like a baby than a pro footballer.

The only player to make two appearances in our fashion faux pas hall of fame, his dress sense has matured slightly, now that he is Derby’s manager.

APPEARING with his then wife Cheryl at a National Lottery photocall back in 2006, Ashley Cole looked like he’d fallen from heaven in this all-white ensemble, with buttoned-down shirt, frills and a heart necklace.

But sadly Ashley was no angel in the marriage, and the dynamic dressing duo split soon afterwards.

YOU wouldn’t think Man United’s French midfielder Paul Pogba is worth around £90million when you see him in this outfit. Maybe it was spitting and the 28-year-old was sheltering from the rain – he was up north, after all, watching his teammates play Wigan in the FA Cup.

My advice, if you’re living north of Watford Gap – invest in a brolly.

TOO cool for school, Arsenal’s Spanish defender Hector Bellerin often experiments with his clothing.

However, here he looks like a cross between an extra in The Matrix and Zoolander.

Maybe he ought to stick to what he knows best – while in a footie strip.

LOOKING like a sad Blazin’ Squad tribute act, the 2005 Manchester United team certainly didn’t seem like millionaire footballers – hands in pockets and wearing their stone-washed denims.
