Dani Alves wears suit and FLIP FLOPS for Barcelona transfer presentation in nod to Nou Camp legend’s dodgy 2008 gear

DANI ALVES donned a pair of flip flops for his second Barcelona presentation… 13 years after doing so the first time around.

The Brazilian, 38, completed a shock return to Catalonia this week, following old pal Xavi back to the club.


Alves may be a much sharper dresser this time around, but in his own words 'some things can change, but others can't'.

The flying full-back arrived at Barca in 2008 from Sevilla.

And for his presentation, he wore a pair of FLIP FLOPS along with blue jeans and a red polo shirt.

This time around Alves went for a far more suave outfit, looking dapper in a turtleneck shirt, blazer and trousers

But he couldn't resist again donning a pair of Barca branded flip flops.

In a cheeky video for the club's social media platforms, the popular star said: "I'm wearing flip flops because some things can change, but others can't."

Alves then kicked off his flip flops for photos alongside club president Joan Laporta.

While holding up his new No8 shirt, Alves appears barefoot on the Nou Camp turf.

He then picked a few blades of grass from the hallowed turf and said: "Smells like Camp Nou, smell likes titles, smells like cups.”

Alves is the most decorated player of all time in terms of honours, winning 23 trophies alone during his incredible first stint at Barcelona.

He initially left for Juventus in 2016, spending a season in Turin before two at Paris Saint-Germain.

Alves could most recently been seen playing for Sao Paulo back in Brazil, but has now returned to the club he is most synonymous with.
