Ivica Olic has returned to HSV on an 18-month contract and he made sure he wouldn’t go unnoticed upon arrival by wearing a blue onesie. Though Olic might be the first footballer to turn up on his first day of work wearing the clothing equivalent of a middle finger to good taste, he is only the latest in a line of footballers who have donned the wearable sweat sack.
We look back now at a trend laced with regret and despair…
Mario Balotelli wearing a onesie while watching the first leg of Chelsea v Liverpool in the Capital One Cup from home.
Rio Ferdinand, wishing he was Balotelli.
U.S. internationals Tobin Heath, Kelley O’Hara and Alex Morgan with matching fox feet.
Alex Morgan again, pulling ahead of Balotelli for the title of onesie master.
A Scottish club uses a onesie as punishment for being the worst in training.
Geoff Cameron models the Stoke City onesie.
As does fellow American Brek Shea.
But West Ham will not be outdone (via @lauriejane)…
Adrian and Razvan Rat keep warm in the photoshopped snow storm.
Alex Song tries not to question his life choices.
And Andy Carroll fills a onesie with more than £50 million of man.
Wolverhampton striker Benik Afobe eventually deleted this photo of himself in a onesie from his social media accounts.
This is where we have to start with this. Mario Balotelli defiantly posing in his camouflage onesie…next to his camouflage Bentley…and his camouflage ATV. This is the maximum. It will never be topped.
