Not only is it smart, it’s recycling!
We all know the heartbreak of splashing out upwards of £60 on your team’s latest official shirt, with your favourite player on the back, only to have them fail miserably or, worse yet, leave just a season or two later.
But what about all the other shirts? The ones named with perfectly respectable players. Players who did a job, played their best for the team and then, like all players do, move on to the next destination in their career.
It seems a shame to let them sit away collecting moth holes at the back of your wardrobe, and to bin it would be just straight wasteful.
Why not do what this resourceful Manchester United fan has done? Of course it only works if the two players’ names are a bit similar, so you might be waiting a while to get to reuse that Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink shirt.
