FIFA have put the snood up for discussion on March 5, with the game’s law-making body, the International FA Board (IFAB), set to decide whether or not the neck-warmer should be banned.

The snood revolution began after a number of the Premier League’s superstars – Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez and Arsenal’s Samir Nasri to name two – opted to wear the accessory in order to fight the harsh weather conditions in England.

A FIFA spokesman told The Telegraph: “We want a debate over the snood and whether it could be dangerous. There may be a safety issue – if for example a player was running through on goal and an opponent grabbed his snood, that could pose a potential danger to his neck.”

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has already banned his players from wearing them, with club captain Rio Ferdinand telling his Twitter followers: “You won’t see a Man Utd player wearing a snood.”
