We know modern footballers have become much more than just professional athletes over the years.
They’re celebrities. They’re charity workers. And Sometimes, they’re even fashion icons.
Just look at Becks for crying out loud.
But we’re not so sure if even he would approve of this bold statement.
Anderlecht midfielder Steven Defour has revealed on Instagram that he will sport some customised shin pads for tonight’s Champions League clash against Arsenal.

Not only are they tailored to the Belgian’s demands. But they feature a picture of both himself and his girlfriend on them.
You can see his thinking behind it, though. What with everyone being able to see through his socks and all. Sorry, Steve. But this one falls into the faux pas category.
Anderlecht will be well fired-up for tonight’s clash at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium, knowing that a win would lift them above Arsene Wenger’s side in Group D.
