Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini has cut off his distinctive curly locks which have been a trademark of his appearance since moving to the Premier League with Everton 10 years ago.
But the midfield battering ram has now opted for a neat and tidy short cut, posting his new appearance on social media.
Uploading his new, almost unrecognisable appearance, Fellaini tagged his photos with ‘new year, new look #birthdaytommorow’ in reference to his birthday which is on November 22.
Among the first to respond was his Manchester United team-mate David de Gea who looked less than impressed with his ‘flushed face’ emoji on Twitter.
Fellaini got the cut done with his usual barber Mitchell’s in Belgium as he posed happily wearing his Manchester United training top.
Fellaini played the full 90 minutes against Manchester City in United’s 3-1 defeat on Sunday.
But national team boss Roberto Martinez is wary the 30-year-old has only just returned from a groin injury and has permitted him to recover over the international break.
United will hope a fully recovered Fellaini can help kickstart their season on return from the international break, with the club languishing in eighth and 12 points off the top of the table.
Jose Mourinho’s side face four home games in five starting late in the month, including a crucial game against fellow top four rivals Arsenal.
