Ranking the 10 Worst Kits in Football This Season

    Football is perhaps better known simply as "the beautiful game."

    However, from time to time, things in world football aren't as beautiful as the name might depict. Djibril Cisse's hair is usually a pretty good starting point for those interested, but we're more on about the football kits here. And the ones you'll see in this list definitely contribute to a lack of beauty in the game.

    Here are the 10 worst kits you're going to see across Europe this year.

10. Aston Villa, Away Jersey

    Officially listed as a plum and white design, we're a little unsure what to make of Aston Villa's away kit, shown here when they defeated Arsenal at the Emirates.

    But as far as easy on the eyes goes, it most certainly is not.

    And while we're here, hands up those that have actually heard of Macron?

9. Juventus, Away Jersey

    Last season, Juventus' away kit was a supremely classy black number. Why they changed it to this glaring yellow jersey is something we'll never know.

    All we do know is that very few people in the world look good in yellow.

    Including Arturo Vidal.

8. Bordeaux, Away Jersey

    It seems that Bordeaux went for a "modern" jersey look this season for their away kit—perhaps trying to connect with their younger generation of fans better.

    But when did they make the move to Hawaii?


7. SSC Napoli, Away Jersey

    Napoli have been one of the more surprising teams in world football this year, but it hasn't in any way been linked to their horrible camouflage-style away jersey.

    Yes, Napoli. We can still see you.

    Maybe the Genoa coach would have been better off wearing this jersey.

6. Sevilla FC, Home Jersey

    Sevilla went for class in their home jersey, and fell well short.

    I'll let this comment do the talking.

    @LeeRoden89 Sevilla kit looks like the flight attendants' uniform for a post-Soviet budget airline.

5. Barcelona, Away Jersey

    There's a lot to love about Barcelona. Tika-taka football, at it's best, is a joy to behold, and any team featuring Lionel Messi is definitely worth watching also.

    But there's nothing to love about their away jersey this season.

    It's better than last year's effort, but still. Surely there's a better design than this?

    You look like a McDonalds worker.

4. Cardiff City, Home Jersey

    Cardiff City's kit angered a lot of fans this year, and rightly so.

    First off, it's not blue. That's an integral part of being called the Bluebirds.

    Perhaps most amusing though, is their home jersey—the first two options in the picture above. And while I'm nothing close to a fashion expert, even I can tell that those are two different shades of red. Which just sounds like a certain E. L. James novel, but slightly more weird.

    Bring back the blue, I say!

3. Fenerbahce, Home Jersey

    Turn all the lights off and I'm pretty sure this would glow in the dark.

    End of story.

2. AC Milan, Third Jersey

    A gold jersey—Mario Balotelli's dream.

    But let's stop and think about it for a minute. Just how often do you see people walking down the street in gold shirts? Not yellow, gold. Have you ever seen someone?

    I'm not sold. Gold is for watches, not football jerseys.

    Don't even start me on the top pocket, either.


1. Liverpool, Away Jersey

    But for No. 1, there can only be one jersey atop of this list.

    Liverpool's away kit. Welcome to the unwanted prize that awaits.

    It might not have the odd-socks that their third kit does (which is another shocker as well), but it simply looks like a mess of white and black and two red stripes.

    Are they meant to be flames? Black flames?

    A close resemblance to a ski-jacket of the 90's.
