We get our fair share of punters, in the Football Transfer Tavern, who regularly get their hair styled in the way their footballing icons do.
We’ve had our David Beckham ‘mohawks’, our Carlos Valderrama ‘afros’ and we once had someone sport Taribo West’s iconc…I don’t even know what to call it? ‘Bobbles’?
Anyway, the latest hairstyle to catch the customers’ attention is Arsenal’s Nicklas Bendtner’s attempts to look like Paris Saint Germain’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic, although, as one regular quips, the Danish striker probably thinks he plays like the Swedish superstar.
On my break I ‘Googled’ the confident Gunners ace and came across some amusing pictures of his latest barnet. In one image, with former Arsenal midfielder Fabrice Muamba, Bendtner reminds me of Brokeback Mountain star, Jake Gyllenhaal.
When I came back from my break, with several printed out copies of Bendtner’s hairstyles to have a giggle with the punters about, Arsenal versus Crystal Palace was starting and no surprise, the former Juventus striker was on the bench (probably as punishment for his hairstyle).
