Only a handful of footballers sport a beard on the pitch, and still fewer manages to rock that bearded look. Here we will take a look at some of the modern footballers who nailed the bearded look during their playing days.
5. Olivier Giroud (Arsenal)
Arsenal fans call him the ‘Handsome French Bloke’. Opinion might be divided on whether he is a world-class striker or not. But when it comes to his looks, the opinion is almost unequivocal.
4. Gennaro Gattuso (former AC Milan)
The former AC Milan legend was a beast in the midfield. There was no messing with this Italian on the pitch, and his bearded only added to his persona.
3. Xabi Alonso (Bayern Munich)
The classy Spaniard really knows how to pull off the beard. It’s only in the later years of his career that he started sporting one. Better late than never!
2. David Beckham (former Man Utd and Real Madrid)
The fashionable icon of football pulled off many looks and hairstyles during his footballing career. There was a time when everyone used to wait with a bated breath for Beckham’s new look. We are certainly fans of his beard.
1. Andrea Pirlo (former Juventus, AC Milan)
The Italian mastermind is the epitome of classiness in football. His beard is as classy as his skills on the ball.
Our number one choice in the list.
