Marouane Fellaini's gone to the hairdresser and it's the biggest news in football

The footballing world sat with bated breath this afternoon after Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini posted this photo to his social media accounts.

The Belgian’s famous afro was just last year dyed blonde and the post, captioned “Hairdresser here we go”, left many on tenterhooks waiting to find out where his hairdo was going next.

“Wonder what he’s got done #interesting,” wrote user stevie_butters on Instagram. Another, tom_gould, put simply “this is terrifying”. Some of course have had some fun with the picture the 29-year-old had posted too.

That Fellaini and Salt Bae crossover though. Inspired.

Amazingly, it’s not the first time this crossover has happened either.

So, you’re probably wondering what it is the big Belgian midfielder has done to his curly locks. Well, after hours and hours of waiting – even with that amount of hair, how long does a cut take?! – so is the rest of the world.

Fellaini’s post has picked up national media attention even though he still hasn’t made the big reveal – and the suspense is killing us.

Perhaps the delay is an ingenious move by Fellaini. If ever there were an incentive to follow someone on Twitter – this is it.

Whatever Fellaini’s done with his locks though, he’ll be hoping the new do serves him well when United host Watford on Saturday.

If the big Belgian can keep the cut under wraps until then – you can be certain the game will receive an awful lot more attention than perhaps the fixture should expect.
