MOVE via Paul Merson, Joe Jordan and Craig Burley… Footballers in the modern world now want perfect teeth.
The world’s best players and managers believe dental hygiene is important and many are now investing thousands of pounds to whiten and repair their grinds.
After all, with their lives under public scrutiny, these sporting giants have made sure they look their best on and off the field.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Philippe Coutinho are just a few who have invested money in their smiles… it’s definitely a definite improvement.
The United legend always wears a grin these days and it’s all because he has perfect teeth.
When he was a teenager at Man Utd they were slightly shaky, yellow and it’s fair to say his smile was tacky.
But after a good few years on solid salaries with the Red Devils and Real Madrid, he wore braces, had corrective surgery, had them whitened and now looks like the superstar that he is.
Like Ronaldo, Gareth knew he had to invest in his looks to be recognized as one of the world’s leading talents.
Once a pale teenage prodigy, he artificially tanned himself. But it was his teeth that really made him go to town.
HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON SOCCER
Previously neglected, they are now pearly white and went well with the white of Real Madrid and Tottenham’s kits.
Growing up in Rio de Janeiro, it would be easy for any Brazilian child to have bad teeth without proper access to a good dentist.
As soon as Philippe hit the big time, he had his teeth whitened and regularly beams his crunch at journalists at press conferences and on social media.
The Brazilian playmaker doesn’t seem out of place in the Premier League elite and soon Prem fans will be able to see them up close when he’s in action for Aston Villa.
Even managers are not immune to a little vanity here and there.
Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers, who now has perfectly white teeth, has managed some top clubs.
At his previous press conferences, the Northern Irishman sported a wicked smile that had us reaching for the dental floss.
In recent years, however, Brendan’s teeth have been as impressive as Leicester’s 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Monday – absolutely brilliant.
The former world best was a bit hesitant when it came to visiting the dentist.
During his playing days, Ronaldinho’s buck teeth were not only notorious for sticking out but also for being yellower than the sun.
Now Ron has more to smile about, not that he didn’t always smile on the pitch when he was playing.
Wonder if he regrets not getting her done sooner?
The former Spurs and England legend didn’t have bad teeth during his playing days. However, they needed a good polish.
Lineker now sports a proud set of sparkling whites showcasing Match of the Day.
The TV personality reportedly pays around £500 to have his teeth whitened by a top Harley Street dentist. The results are truly remarkable.
It looks like Firmino shares the same dentist as former teammate Coutinho, if comparable snaps of the Brazilian are any proof enough.
The hot forward has been a shining light for Liverpool since arriving on our shores and his teeth aren’t dull either.
In fact, they are perhaps the brightest teeth known to man and we’ve seen them light up stadiums in the Premier League this year.
Judging by the photos, when Firmino first arrived at our shore he bleached them and also had some of the chips filled in.
There really is something in the water at Anfield Road…
His soccer teams are amazing, but his teeth really needed a good cleaning.
It was no surprise, then, that Klopp had decided enough was enough, tooth decay out and new teeth in.
Klopp’s mother-of-pearl has been a proud sight to behold all season and is far less boring than his moans of games overload.
Not only are they lightened, it looks like he’s had veneers put in.
Then there’s Jose the dentist whisperer…
Roma boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly an advocate of dental hygiene and insists his squad be checked by a dentist.
When the Portugal manager first arrived at Old Trafford, he reportedly insisted the entire squad go to an inquest.
He is said to have done the same at Chelsea, believing better teeth improve performance.
Although there is no scientific evidence to support this, the British Journal of Sports Medicine claimed in a recent study that footballers’ dental health is “poor and affects performance”.
And who are we to argue with ‘The Special One’ who has won many trophies for various clubs over the years?
