Is there a player in the game of soccer who wears his socks up as high as Brazil’s Neymar? I don’t think so. Sure, Thierry Henry has been know to pull his socks up, but not nearly as high as Neymar – his are well over his knees, entirely.
I guess the socks sort of offer some support, and maybe even keep his legs warm. At least he’s not wearing a snood or tights like Arjen Robben. However, if he ends up playing in England he might come out for the match with a jacket under his game jersey. He’s awful thin you know. The cold wind will go right through him.
I wonder if players will start copying this look. They’ve already started coping his hairstyle you know, or at least Robinho has.
And yes, even though Neymar is now playing for Barcelona he’s still pulling his socks up over his knees.
