The 10 Worst Haircuts in Premier League History
Premier League footballers, they dazzle hundreds of thousands each week with some of the best football in the world; they entertain and leave us asking for more; they cause fans all over the world moments of extreme joy as well as making us fall into uncomparable dispair.
They also know how to have some absolutely shocking haircuts.
This isn't new to football. Remember Chris Waddle's mullet, or Rudi Voller's bubble perm at Italia '90?
Is the trend worsening?
Has the extra money players now earn given them egos that can only be covered by enormous hair styles?
Perhaps the hightened levels of media attention has gotten to some players and caused them to lose all common sense, if they indeed originally possessed any.
Not matter what the reasons, here are ten of the worst haircuts the Premier League has brought us.
10. Ivan Campo
Having played and lived in Madrid, winning a league title as well as a Champions League winner's medal, Campo made the move to the just glamourous town of Bolton.
Originally joining on loan, he would go on to make over 150 appearances for the club between 2002 and 2008, scoring some important goals including a 40 yard screamer against Tottenham Hotspur.
More importantly he regularly flew back to Spain to have his perm attended to.
9. David Beckham
The England, Manchester United, Real Madrid, and AC Milan star(oh, and some American team) has had numerous hair styles during his time in football. But how many of us remember this flock of seagulls effort from a young David Beckham?
Who would have guessed that this lad would go on to become one of the most widely recognised personalities in the world?
8. Taribo West
After spending time at both Milan clubs, what's the next career move, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, or maybe Liverpool?
Or Derby County.
Taribo West, who had impressed many with his displays in Inter's 1998 UEFA cup winning side and for Nigeria in that summer's World Cup, failed to impress during his short spell at the County Ground. However he did manage to entertain with his haircuts, fair play to the lad.
7. David Seaman
He was a key member of the Arsenal title winning sides in 1998 and 2002 and made 75 apperances for England. And he can dance, on ice.
But as his hair got longer, his goal keeping abilities lessened, culminating in conceding that goal against Brazil during the 2002 World Cup.
6. Bakary Sagna
What do you do when you can't decide if you want a shaved head or slightly longer hair?
You get a Sagna. And doesn't it just look lovely when he's flying down that right flank for the gunners?
5. Djibril Cisse
When Gerard Houllier signed the Senegalese forward during the Summer of 2004, he was supposed to bring pace and goals to the Liverpool front line.
Well he certainly brough pace and a bizarre range of haircuts.
He's now back in the Premier League once more showing of his fashion sense for Sunderland.
4. Fabricio Coloccini
Coloccini joined the now relegated Geordie team last summer, and his reputation for tough tackling wasn't all that he brought with him.
Unfortunately for Newcastle supporters, it wasn't enough to put off opposition strikers, and it remains to be seen whether the former Deportivo player will stick around to play in the Championship next season.
3. David James
Known as being one of the finest shot stoppers the Premier League has seen, David James has also been prone to some dodgy moments between the sticks, supposedly caused by too much time on the Playstation.
He has also had his fair share of dodgy barnets, including this orange number from his time in Liverpool.
2. Marouane Fellaini
Not only has the signing of Belgian midfielder Fellaini brought some steal to the Everton team, it has also triggered a boost in sales of perm wigs in the Liverpool area.
A box-to-box style player, it remains to be seen if he'd be able to make that journey faster if he was slightly more aerodynamic.
1. Jason Lee
There aren't many footballers whose haircuts are more famous than them.
Jason Lee's pineapple is one of them.
The man who was followed everywhere by the chant, "He's got a pineapple, on his head," played three seasons in the top flight for Nottingham Forest and currently plies his trade for Corby Town in the Conference North.
