Football was once seen as a gentleman’s game played by beasts, but the infiltration of metrosexuality, diving, and softness amongst players has transformed the game completely.
Underwear and beauty product advertisements involving the world’s best footballers have contributed to football diverging from hard tackles, confrontation, and grit.
Personally, I have no room to speak on the subject. Without the paradigm shift in the world of football, I would be seen as an outcast. Doing my eyebrows, getting far too many haircuts, and shaving all body hair would be far stranger without the influence of the metrosexual men of football.
For that, I salute every single one of you.
Here is a list of the most metrosexual men in football (in recent memory) and those that have shifted the views of the outside world on the average pro footballer.
Golden Balls, the first super star, and one damn good-looking man. There isn't a haircut that he can't pull off or an outfit he can't wear. The man's a legend. Source: Twitter
He's got flair, incredible style, gets haircuts more than I do, and is the most infamous diver in the game today. Neymar is the next generation of metro leading the way to a more body hair free and hair product filled tomorrow. Source: Twitter
A late bloomer of sorts in the world of metrosexuality, Sergio Ramos let Madrid get the best of him. His beard is second to only Pirlo and Xabi Alonso and carries himself with such class. The man knows how to take care of himself. Source: Twitter
Shrek's doppelganger makes the list for his trip to a brothel. According to reports, Rooney cheated on his fiancée with an almost 50 year old slag. Disgusting and dishonest. Source: Twitter
