Style-Off: Emmanuel Adebayor v Milos Krasic
Dear readers: whilst we know that you usually visit our humble site for the hottest manflesh that football can offer, we feel it inappropriate to allow you to labour under the misapprehension that all players are as skillful at dressing themselves as they are at kicking a ball.
Because they’re clearly not.
We take our responsibility to you very seriously, you see.
Both went to extraordinary lengths to prove how easy it is to fall into the trap of being a hugely wealthy man and dressing like a blind loon bag by willingly stepping out into the open air in the costumes you see above.
First up, we find Emmanuel, recently having given birth and celebrating the fact with a particularly alarming embroidered jeans/shirt combo. His face carries the beatific expression of a new mom, his neck carries an extra large muslin cloth covered with the remnants of baby’s first organic meal.
Next it’s Milos, modelling the latest in distressed denim (and hair). He accompanies his look with trendy hi-tops, distressing distressed jeans, and a jacket with detachable gilet. Apparently this jacket comes with optional gloves tied to the sleeves with elastic, although we haven’t been able to confirm this.
Which casual look is ringing your bell, people? Is it Manu’s mad parrot, or Milos’s collapsed ‘Flock of Seagulls’?
Tell us. While you still can.
