Here is why Real Madrid star player Jude Bellingham cut holes in his socks while playing 

After moving from Borussia Dortmund to Real Madrid in the summer, Jude Bellingham has become a sensation in La Liga.

The incredible La Liga player has been spotted playing for both club and nation while sporting socks with holes in them.

It’s an odd sight, and it makes you wonder if the holes are just the result of pitch wear and strain or if they were intentionally made.

La Liga states that players must not wear kit that is torn in any way – with ripped garments needing to be replaced during the match but a blind eye is being turned to the fact that Bellingham continues to shred his socks. He is one of those that cuts holes in the back of his socks in order to ease tension on the lower leg – which helps to reduce the risk of cramp and muscle injuries to players.

If footballers rip holes in their socks, it’s usually for the better; they stand to gain multiple advantages. The players’ desire to prevent calf injuries during a match is the true motivation behind this.

This is because wearing football socks that are too tight might accidentally put a lot of pressure on your muscles, especially when you’re jogging or stretching, which can limit how much movement you can do. Their legs can release stress thanks to the holes, which helps shield them from developing muscle strains or cramps. In addition, they may have an adverse effect on blood flow and circulation via the legs in players with bulging muscles, which could eventually cause serious problems.

Carlos Sánchez, a physiotherapist who was previously from Leganés, explains to Relevo:

Football players who have big lower bodies, or calves that are powerful, tend to accumulate too much tension in that area. These cuts do not guarantee that the player will not pick up an injury, but they do remove tension from the muscle, and it makes it easier for players to last the 90 minutes.”

Players always use a new sock in each match. They seek, first of all, comfort. Those who put holes in them are usually those with calf problems. These openings reduce the risk of suffering injury.”
