Aston Villa superkid Jack Grealish says having his socks rolled down during games is a bit of a superstition.

The 19 year-old, who who outshone Liverpool in the FA Cup semi final wearing children's shin pads, explains, "I've done it all my life and I'm going to keep it that way!"

It's worked for him so far, but it got us thinking – which other stars have ridiculous ritual? So we’ve picked out six of our faves!

PHIL JONES

The Man. United defender also has a sock superstition. Phil puts his left sock on first at Old Trafford and his right sock on first for an away game – all because the fixtures list United on those sides!

CRISTIANO RONALDO

Ron’s always been a cut above the rest – but this takes it too far. Apparently, the Real Madrid superstar gives his hair a reshuffle in every half-time break. Can you imagine playing a whole game with just a single style? We can’t!

GARY LINEKER

MOTD's very own Gary Lineker also had a haircut habit - if he hadn’t scored for a few games, he'd pop down the barber’s for a trim. He’d also avoid taking shots in the pre-match warm-up, as he didn't want to use up his goals!

JOHN TERRY

JT once admitted to having around 50 matchday rituals. The Chelsea skipper’s habits include listening to his favourite Usher tracks and sitting in the same spot on the team coach every time they hit the road!

PEPE REINA

Bayern’s bench-warming baldy has a tasty tradition - every night before a game, it's said that the Spanish shot-stopper scoffs a cheese and ham toastie. Pepe claims it gives him fuel for matchdays!

BLANC AND BARTHEZ

Laurent Blanc would stick a smacker on shiny-scalped keeper Fabian Barthez before every game at France 98. The barmy French duo’s interesting antics helped Les Bleus to win the World Cup!
