Footballers the world over are paid exorbitant amounts of money to do something they love and something we love to watch. Fans worship them, kids idolize them. They are the pinnacle of the sporting world. But sometimes, these very same leaders in their field have what can only be described as a ‘brain-explosion’, a blunder, an aberration. Not just from the English Premier League, these somewhat hirsute athletes decorate football leagues globally.
This is a list showcasing fifteen of the worst hairdressing faux pas that have graced our beautiful game.
15. Paul Gascoigne
A great Geordie lad, Gazza spent his days at Newcastle, Tottenham, Lazio, Middlesbrough, Rangers and Everton. Putting the ball in the net at least once at them all. Gazza normally sporting short hair, thought it was time for a change, and in the late 80′s grew his hair out. Playing for Lazio in 1993′ he exhibited the — “12-year old girl pony-tail”.
14. Djibril Cissé
The French international has been a regular feature in the Premier League, with stints for Liverpool, Sunderland and now with QPR. But for the joy of Italy, Greece and his France he took his footballing talents and ever changing hair to play for Lazio, Panathinaikos and Auxerre for multiple seasons. He is never without a bright colorant atop his head, and don’t forget the matching beard.
The pick of the bunch must be the spider’s web, while playing for Auxerre. Maybe in reverence of his favourite superhero.
13. Brek Shea
Brek Shea is only 22 years of age is a great up and coming talent playing for FC Dallas in the MLS. The speedy midfield has also played 10 appearances for the United States first team. Shea is well known for his unique haircuts, seen here trying to become the third member of Jedward.
