Paul Pogba is largely renowned throughout world football as one of Europe’s finest midfielders.
The Juventus star is still just 23-years-old and has become a vital member of the Italians’ squad, recently helping them to a fifth-straight Serie A title.
However, Pogba has become famous for something completely unrelated to football in recent times, and that’s for his wacky and imaginative hairstyles.

Football fans have grown used to seeing the gangly Frenchman sporting a different and daring haircut almost every week in Italy’s top-flight, drawing inspiration from Pokemon, Batman and even Disney’s 'Despicable Me' in recent times.
His latest creation, though, is perhaps his greatest yet and arguably the most fitting giving Juventus’ recent success.

The France intentional posted a video showing off his new barnet on Twitter (see below).
For those unaware, Juventus’ win over Fiorentina on Monday secured the Serie A title for the 34th time in their history, though official records state it's 32 due to their 2005 and 2006 wins being stripped.
The hashtag ‘HI5TORY’ was then used to mark the remarkable feat of five-straight Scudetti's, with Pogba illustrating their achievement by having the numbers 30, 31, 32, 33 and 34 shaved on the side of his head in gold.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side celebrated in some fashion following their victory, with one video capturing Pogba jumping on a table in Juventus’ dressing room whilst surrounded by his jubilant teammates.
On-loan Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado was also visible in the video smoking a cigar.
And they have every right to celebrate so wildly following their incredible comeback in Serie A. The Italians were 12th on October 28 and 11 points off the pace but won 24 of their next 25 fixtures to secure the title ahead of closest rivals Napoli.
It hasn’t all been smiles and celebrations for Juventus, though, with a disappointing Champions League campaign blemishing an otherwise emphatic term in Turin.
Allegri’s men entered their quarter-final second leg with Bayern Munich at 2-2 but blew their chances of European success by losing 6-4 on aggregate.
Their Italian manager is well aware of the demands from his superiors at the Juventus Stadium and believes a solid run in the Champions League is needed next time around.
He said, according to FourFourTwo: “Next year we must target winning the Champions League.
“The club will focus on improving the squad, as it did last summer, bringing in young players with great technique."
Further silverware is still on offer for Juventus, of course, with a Coppa Italia final against AC Milan in the offing on May 21.
