Football's worst dressed best

Lyon star Memphis Depay struck out with a bizarre blazer at the UNFP awards this week, joining a prestigious list of footballers who proved fame and fashion don't always mix.

Depay was the subject of some cruel ridicule after a tumultuous two years at Manchester United, and with his career back on track at Lyon, it looked like Memphis had finally escaped the scathing eye of the online community.

Depay stunner wins UNFP Goal of the Year

That was until he stepped out at the French National Professional Football players' Union (UNFP) looking like late king of pop Michael Jackson.

Unfortunately for Depay, the internet has immortalised his fashion faux pas, along with these other footballers.

Alex Song

We could make an entire list with Alex Song's wardrobe alone, with the former Arsenal man dishing out some absolute belters over the years.

But this confused denim suit combo takes the cake.

Dani Alves

Dani Alves wasn't naked, but when he wore this birthday suit on arrival for Barcelona's UEFA Champions League semi final in 2015, it turned just as many heads.

It didn't take long for snaps of the outfit to go viral and when they did, the online community did its thing.

Mario Balotelli

How could you leave Super Mario off this list.

Having grown up and played most of his career in Milan (the fashion capital of the world) you would think Mario Balotelli would scrub up a little better than this, but his strange choice of attire often has you wondering what bet he lost to wear this.

Lionel Messi

There’s no doubting Lionel Messi doesn’t skip a beat on the pitch, but the three-time Ballon d’Or winner has missed the mark more than once at the prestigious awards ceremony.

His choice of red at the 2014 Ballon d'Or drew comparisons to iconic actor Joe Pesci in 'My cousin Vinny.' 

Cristiano Ronaldo

The Real Madrid superstar has endorsement deals with some of the biggest fashion labels in the world, but a look back at his early days suggests the Portuguese star wasn't always a fashion icon.

Charles Nzgobia

Charles Nzgobia strutted into the Aston Villa dressing room beaming with confidence, until he was absolutely roasted by his team-mates for this floral shocker. Prompting team-mate Shay Given to post the get-up on social media.

The comments were savage, with one punter summing it up brilliantly comparing the floral design to his ‘nan’s curtains.’

Paul Pogba

We couldn't leave world record signing Paul Pogba out of this list, after the Manchester United star strutted the 2015 FIFA Ballon d'Or red carpet in this.
