Nice forward Allan Saint-Maximin was in the limelight last week, but not for the goal which secured his team all three points against Bordeaux. Rather, he grabbed the eyeballs after being spotted donning a Gucci headgear from their 2018 Cruise collection, which is worth £180.
As per the Ligue 1 regulations, a player cannot wear any gear of non-sporting organization on the field. And to avoid any mishap, the 21-year-old came up with a brilliant technique. He wore the band by covering the branding with white tape, hence avoiding the wrath of the officials as well as his club.
Allan Saint-Maximin endorses PUMA and the band he wore is supposedly inspired by the sweatbands worn the by players of 1980s. And this wasn’t the only incident he did something of sort, to say the least. It was only this week that the 21-year-old was spotted wearing an all back headband when his side visited Thierry Henry’s AS Monaco.
The forward, who was again on the scoresheet, matched his headgear to that of his club’s black away kit. Saint-Maximin broke the deadlock in the 30th minute, but a goal from defender Benoît Badiashile secured Henry’s men a point. The 21-year-old has been in fine form of late, scoring five goals thus far.
