As part of their “Anytime Heroes” piece from Issue 6, the good folks over at Howler magazine have commissioned illustrator Chris Moran (@chrismoranART) to re-imagine several of today’s top footballing stars including as 1970s footballing icons – the heyday of the unashamedly hirsute sportsman.
Naturally this means an influx of gentlemanly facial furniture and a cavalcade of dodgy barnets…
Subtle shades of “Waddle chic” from Mr Gerrard there, and we can’t help but think Cristiano Ronaldo’s game would be improved immeasurably with the addition of a fine Souness-esque lip adornment.
There are a couple of other transformations available over on Howler’s Instagram page, with Luis Suarez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Hope Solo also coming in for similar treatment.
