Notice anything different? Do you even recognise who this is? It’s Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini and he’s sensationally shaved off his infamous afro!!

Fellaini has made over 150 Premier League appearances for Everton and Manchester United combined but always with his recognisable barnet, next season we’ll be seeing a different look from the Belgian! Louis Van Gaal will be hoping the crop will see an improvement in his domestic form following a poor season last time out. Fellaini did show some of his better talents in the World Cup though, playing all of Belgium’s games, scoring once.

Lets have a look at some more hairstyles from football…

David Beckham anyone? Click here for a MASSIVE gallery of his hairdo’s over the years!

What about Rene Higuita? The Colombian goalkeeper who invented the scorpion kick was also famed for his unique hair!

Ronaldo was a Brazilian legend yet in the 2002 showed up with this dreadful triangle of fluff!

Paul Scharner was delightfully insane at times and whilst playing for Wigan had a habit of colouring his hair, take a look!

Abel Xavier? That name won’t mean much to many but to those who recognise the name it brings back memories of crazy hair, here’s one of his impressive efforts!

Stephan El Shaarway broke through into the Serie A with much promise, now at Milan he still hasn’t got himself a decent cut!

And finally, who can forget Wayne Rooney? With a receding hairline and (probably) more money than sense, Wayne paid £15,000 to make this difference to his barnet!

It will be so odd though seeing Fellaini without his trademark afro though… And how will the sale of novelty wigs be affected? This remains to be seen…
