One of football’s most recognisable haircuts is no more. Marouane Fellaini, the Manchester United midfielder, has decided to finally chop into his glorious afro, and is now sporting a far more traditional style.

Fresh cut

Fellaini had initially vowed to have his hair tamed if Belgium were able to win the World Cup this summer but they, of course, were unable to do so. But a trip to the quarter-finals appears to have been enough to encourage Fellaini to abandon the fro.

On Thursday pictures emerged on social media of Fellaini and his short new style, with the Manchester United player stood next to a triumphant looking hairdresser.

There is little wonder his stylist looked so chuffed, with the task of scything down the Fellaini fuzz a more daunting prospect than the one David Moyes inherited when he arrived at Old Trafford last summer to replace Sir Alex Ferguson.

New era

Fellaini was the maiden signing of the Moyes era at Manchester United, which lasted only 10 months, arriving on deadline day last summer for a fee of £27 million. The two, of course, had previously worked together at Everton.

The Belgium international, and his new hair, will not return to Manchester United after a little holiday to work under a new manager for the first time in six years, with Louis van Gaal now the man in charge at the Theatre of Dreams.
