Paddy Power Games give Liverpool hero Jason McAteer second chance to change FA Cup final white suits

All he wanted was to be taken seriously.


Would Liverpool would have beaten Manchester United in the 1996 FA Cup final if they hadn’t have worn their infamous white Armani suits?

Liverpool hero Jason McAteer certainly think so, and the former Ireland star is still having flashbacks to that day when the club’s 90s Spice Boy reputation went through the Wembley roof.

Now, with the help of Paddy Power Games, we’ve given Jason a look at what could happen if he had a second chance at the tailors before their trip to the capital.

All of Paddy’s punters get a second chance to win with Paddy Power Games – and we gave McAteer the same treatment.

After trying to be convinced to stick with the white suits because he’s the most stylish player in the side, McAteer instead opts for a smart, navy suit. He didn’t care if the Liverpool lads called him boring.

The Irishman’s decision proved to be the right one as Liverpool went on to lift the FA Cup and McAteer was named the Ballon d’Or winner.

The papers also had a lot to say about the suits, with one well-respected national, The Paddy Times, leading with ‘Navy suits admired by all’ on their front page.

However, unfortunately for McAteer and his former Liverpool team-mates, it was all in his imagination.

Liverpool did wear the white suits and lost in the 1996 FA Cup final thanks to a late Eric Cantona winner.

And while Jason could only dream about getting that second chance, here at Paddy Power Games you don’t have to…
