Manchester United sensation Garnacho has a new look.
The 18-year-old Argentinian decided it was time to go full blonde.
The winger has turned heads on the pitch with his impressive skills and speed. Now he wants to follow other stylish Premier League footballers in making a fashion statement on and off the field.
Garnacho goes blonde
The youngster tried to hide his new blonde hair during practice, but Antony, his Brazilian teammate, uncovered it.
The previously dark brown bowl is now a goner, with fans loving the new chop.
Manchester United players have made bold hair statements before. Red Devil players David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Paul Pogba all experimented with various hairstyles in the past. They set trends and influenced fans all over the world.
Garnacho’s new look is a departure from his previous style. It may not be as dramatic as some of his predecessors, but he will definitely stand out on the pitch. Whether it will give him an extra edge remains to be seen.
Moreover, it’s not uncommon for young players to express themselves through fashion and hairstyles during their careers. Garnacho has the opportunity to show the world that he is unique and unafraid to take risks.
Blending the fashion and footballing worlds also creates profitable business opportunities. Jack Grealish is the current poster boy for Gucci; Son Heung-min and Marcus Rashford are Burberry ambassadors.
Manchester United are preparing for leg two of their Europa League knockout round against Barcelona with sides tied 2-2 on aggregate.
Meanwhile, super sub-Garnacho will be looking to make a super statement, not just with his hair but with another powerful strike. He scored a banger against Leicester City a fortnight ago.
