The Champions League draw is a classy affair for the world's premier club competition and includes some of the biggest names in the history of the sport on its guest list. Being held in Monaco makes it even glitzier and the participants wear only the finest designer clothes. Except for Carles Puyol, who had the important task of bringing out the Champions League trophy and wore club issued Nike shorts and sneakers.
The Telegraph's Henry Winter clarified that Puyol did not just come off the beach, but was still in his traveling gear for Barca's UEFA Super Cup match against Porto on Friday. Still, as finalists for the new Best Player in Europe award, both Xavi and Lionel Messi showed up wearing suits, so I think Puyol probably couldn't done the same. At the very least he could've dried his hair.
