Nike designs a personalized t-shirt for players who keep cutting the collar
It beats having to cut the collar every time
Eintracht Frankfurt player Martin Hinteregger apparently doesn’t like necklaces. Maybe the 28-year-old defender doesn’t like the way he feels on his neck. Maybe he has sensitive skin and it irritates him. Everything is possible.
The point is that his aversion to collars is such that the Austria international has decided in recent years to cut the collar of his Eintracht Frankfurt shirt before matches, as seen below.
Frankfurt’s current away kit for the 2020/21 season comes with a polo collar as standard, but with Hinteregger insisting on cutting it – apparently with scissors – Nike decided to create a custom shirt just for him.
This special jersey was worn by Hinteregger for the first time during the recent Bundesliga match in Frankfurt against Union Berlin, which ended 3-3 in the German capital.

What exactly this means remains to be seen. Is it a unique piece? Or will we increasingly see the personal tastes of satisfied footballers with football shirts? Only time will tell.
