Let’s admit it, footballers were way cooler in good old days, weren’t they?
We’re talking high short shorts, black boots, sensible haircut and a tucked in shirt. None of this amateur dramatics of diving and rolling around on the pitch, players gave referee’s respect and teams used the ‘old school’ handshake instead of the modern high-five approach.
Nobody had sleeve tattoos and managers used to smoke a fag and crack jokes while sitting on the bench, what a time to be alive. If the gaffer attempted to a cheeky smoke in modern game there would be genuine fears that the level of hair product in the dressing room would cause a fire hazard.
One man, Palardo Negro, has amusingly used Photoshop to show us what it would be like to send some of football’s most famous faces back to the past, and the results are great!
If this article teaches us anything at all it’s that Leo Messi needs to grow a mustache:
Made to look like a normal human being living in a time when people didn’t bite each other on a football pitch.
You know what? Neymar genuinely looks pretty bloody cool:
Ronny could only ever dream of having a body like the animal he’s been paired with here. Ever thought of hitting the gym Cristiano? You’re thin as a rake mate.
James just looks too nice, I mean, to clean. To make this authentic the smile really needs to go, he needs to look mysterious, inquisitive almost.
Ah well, we can’t all have that famous Lionel Messi mustache.
