No player does fashion like Jules Kounde at Barcelona.

The Frenchman has a knack for turning up in style before every matchday, and Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League tie against FC Porto was no different for the defender.

Kounde’s tunnel drip, as usual, sparked positive reactions on social media as the 25-year-old defender again outshone all his Barcelona teammates with his deep fashion sense.

According to fashion magazine Highsnobiety, Kounde is the best-dressed footballer in the world right now, as they claim the defender has consistently knocked it out of the park with his fits.

While pieces from Amiri, Ferragamo, and Prada make regular appearances within the Frenchman's rotation, his taste for up-and-coming, lowkey brands from around the world sets his style apart.

Just like David Beckham and Hector Bellerin before him, Kounde has gradually become not just a footballer but also a fashion icon due to his preferred taste in collections and dress sense before matches.

Kounde happy with UCL qualification

Meanwhile, Kounde is delighted Barcelona are through to the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League but claims achieving the feat was not an easy task after their comeback victory against Porto, Tribal Football reports.

The 25-year-old defender says he and his teammates were happy to qualify for the next round after failing to progress out of the group stage for the last two seasons.

Porto had taken a surprise lead against the reigning La Liga champions, but comeback goals from Joao Cancelo and Joao Felix ensured the Catalans secured a 2-1 victory over the visitors.

Kounde becomes Barcelona’s fashionable star

Sports Brief also previously reported that there is a new fashionista at Barcelona - and his name is French star, Jules Kounde.

The 24-year-old, who joined the Catalan giants last summer, stands out with his fashion sense, causing fans to gasp in awe each.

Kounde boasts a very gusty style, often incorporating famous pop culture trends in his fashion which transcends just one style.
