New age footballers in retro makeovers look so much more cooler.

The Beautiful Game has evolved over time and so has the fashion sense of the footballers who play it at the highest level. Cristiano Ronaldo's greasy hair, Lionel Messi's baby face and Zlatan Ibrahimovic's ponytail have become the trademark of their image.

It makes one wonder how they'd look if they weren't born in the present day era where style, grooming and fashion have become extremely important even for sports stars. Thanks to folks over at Paladar Negro, we don't have to just wonder anymore.

With a bit of Photoshop trickery, they've given these modern day stars retro makeovers. It's funny, it's intriguing. And in a nutshell, footy fans should better check them out below:
