Few footballers have haircuts that make the news, but along with David Beckham’s mohawk, Paul Pogba’s blonde streak or Brazillian Ronaldo’s tufty fringe… Fellaini’s hair is more than just hair. It’s iconic.
He’s experimented before, with cornrows and a weird blonde/ginger dye – but Fellaini always returned to his trusty fro.
But now, Fellaini’s famous curly locks which bounce as he zooms around the football pitch are no more.
Writing on his Instagram, Fellaini said “New year, new look #birthdaytomorrow”
As for Manchester United and Belgium fans we now live in a world where the ‘Fellaini wig’ will no longer work on the terraces… Did it ever??
Borussia Dortmund midfielder Axel Witsel has got a thing to say too.

Born in Etterbeek, Brussels, Belgium to Bihari parents, he played youth football for Anderlecht, R.A.E.C. Mons, Royal Francs Borains and Charleroi S.C. before joining Standard Liège.
After winning the Belgian First Division and the Ebony Shoe as a Liège player, he moved to England to join Everton.
At Everton, he was the club’s Young Player of the Season for 2008–09, when the club were losing finalists in the FA Cup.
After five years at Everton, he transferred to Manchester United in a deal worth £27.5 million in September 2013.
