Club tat: The best and worst football club shop items of 2016

Updated: 

Football clubs are notorious for cashing in at every move, branding everything they can get their hands on and selling it at a premium.

In an age where stars can rake in £300,000 per week, perhaps it's understandable.

But, we can't help but feel some of these are a tad overboard.

Press Association chief football writer Simon Peach has collated the best kitsch from his travels in 2016, and there are strong contenders for the tattiest tat.

Our personal favourites include an AC Milan bingo ball sorter, a St Etienne watering can, an Olympiakos moses basket and a Boca Juniors thong.

Take a look at some of these absolute specimens.

But, despite other great efforts, St Etienne seems to have won the kitsch crown with its stunning array of branded goods.

Credit must go to both the pruning shears and the, er, muesli.
