Pic: Stop everything! Marouane Fellaini has had his hair cut! Or has he?

Manchester United and Belgium player, Marouane Fellaini has had his trademark afro removed and we think it's deliberate.

Well not quite. He's had his hair braided, but it certainly gives you an indication of what short hair would look like on him. We can only assume that he's turned over a new leaf or maybe is trying to hide his identity a little before Louis van Gaal arrives for pre-season training. Whatever his reasons, he sure looks different and Manchester United fans will be hoping the new hairdo will mean new fortunes for the big Belgian who cost £27m. Twenty seven million pounds.

He's no stranger to experimenting with hair as we documented a while back here.

This is a significant moment in history and we'll all be asked if we knew where we were when Marouane Fellaini had his barnet braided.
