FIFA again takes aim at Premier League: They want to ban snood craze!

FIFA are again attacking the Premier League.

This time the game's big wigs are discussing BANNING the snood - the neckwear that has taken English football by storm!

Snoods have become increasingly popular in the Premier League after Carlos Tevez and Emmanuel Adebayor started the trend last season, but they are not officially-sanctioned kit.

A FIFA spokesman said: "We want a debate over the snood and whether it could be dangerous. There may be a safety issue - if for example a player was running through on goal and an opponent grabbed his snood, that could pose a potential danger to his neck."

Manchester City skipper Carlos Tevez and Arsenal's Marouane Chamakh sparked the fashion craze in England earlier this season.
