Manchester United midfielder Marouane
Fellaini has celebrated turning 31 with a
drastic change of style.
Ahead of his birthday, the Belgian has shaved off his synonymous afro for a cleaner, neater look.
According to reports, Fellaini trusted his
favourite barber shop with the important
trim; Mitchell’s in Brussels.
It is the shortest Fellaini’s hair has been since his arrival in England a little over 10 years ago and is a massive departure from his famous fro.
Belgium team-mates Vincent Kompany and Dries Mertens quickly expressed their shock at the shaved locks.
The Manchester City captain replied: “It’s
photoshopped, it can’t be true!” Mertens
added: “Noooooooooooooooo.” United team-mate Eric Bailly sent similar sentiments.
Fellaini has previously messed with his
signature look. He bleached his entire barnet last year, giving him a distinct shade of off-yellow.
