Paul Pogba‘s career has been flooded with controversies and injuries. However, there’s one thing that has always been synonymous with Paul Pogba, and that is his opinion-dividing hairstyles.
If there’s something that has surpassed his recent goal tally, it’s not his assists but the number of hairstyles he has adorned over the years. A recent video of Paul Pogba featured the Frenchman in yet another of his unique hairdos.
Pogba’s return to Juventus has not gone according to plan. After departing from Manchester United to join the Italian giants in 2022, he suffered a series of serious injuries, severely limiting his game time at the Serie A club.
To make matters worse, Pogba has been accused of doping. After failing a doping test attributed to elevated testosterone levels, Pogba has been temporarily suspended from football. The Anti-Doping Prosecutor’s Office has imposed a four-year suspension on Pogba.
It will be quite some time before we see the Frenchman bossing the midfield again, but he has not deprived us of another fancy new hairstyle. Pogba took to social media to flaunt his new hairstyle, and it is peculiar, to say the least.
Despite being under suspension since mid-September, Pogba seems to be a smiling man as he filmed a video of himself on TikTok. The main motive behind it was to showcase his new hairstyle.
His hairstyle features narrow cornrows in the front of the scalp with bright golden loose dreadlocks starting from the middle of the scalp. Moreover, the sides are skin faded. It was as weird as it can get for us, but the Frenchman surely seemed to enjoy it.
You know someone is really ambitious about their hair when they fly in their personal barber from around the world to give them a haircut. It’s one of the luxuries you can afford when you’ve been the most expensive transfer in 2016.
Despite all the effort from Pogba and his barber, the general consensus is not good.
People have hilariously suggested that this haircut should be enough reason to extend the ban imposed on him.
Others have expressed their distress about his new look, tagging it as ‘cringe’ and even going so far as to call it his worst hairstyle to date.
A few of them have also rightly pointed out how the Frenchman changes his hairstyle more frequently than he plays matches.
On the other hand, some people couldn’t hide their disappointment as they quoted the famous line that Jose Mourinho said about football heritage when he was the coach of a certain Manchester United team that included Pogba in their lineup.
However weird it may be to us, Pogba surely doesn’t regret it, and we have got to respect it.
After all, no other player can pull off such an edgy style. So, the next time you see Pogba stepping onto the pitch, don’t just watch his feet. Take a moment to appreciate the artistry on his head as well.
