Alexander Zorniger is the new manager at Stuttgart. Alexander Zorniger does not like it when his players wear large headphones. He thinks it makes them look silly.
He told SportBILD:
“The players are allowed to wear headphones on the team bus, but not in public,”
“There’s a visual reason for this – a 5’5″ small player looks ridiculous when the headphones are as large as the whole head”.
So, to sum up, he banned headphones because he thinks they look weird on small players. A completely rational decision. Worth noting: his shortest player is 5'7," so we assume his definition of "small player" extends at least to there.
