Haaland has no plans to cut his hair anytime soon

Erling Haaland hilariously responded to a fan’s suggestion on Twitter that he should cut his hair, but then joked that he could undergo a major transformation after the transfer from Manchester City.

Although he didn’t score, the striker did register an assist on his way to an unlikely win as his side scored two goals late.

Haaland tweeted about his brilliant comeback and how it was a great way to start 2022.

One user responded by telling the striker, who Manchester City signed in the summer, to cut his long hair and he bluntly replied saying: “No”.

This answer received over 130,000 likes and thousands more retweets.

But don’t expect Haaland to emulate his new teammates anytime soon

However, months later, after signing for Manchester City in a £51million deal, Haaland was keen to tease fans that he could change up his iconic look.

The 22-year-old was on vacation before reporting to City for pre-season training when he took to Instagram to show off his new hat.

He then uploaded a follow-up selfie in which he reacted to fans mentioning those golden locks, writing, “No I don’t need a haircut.”

However, Haaland then surprisingly hinted to his followers that he might be considering a major hair transformation to coincide with his arrival in the city.

He wrote alongside his next post: “Or maybe I should get a British fade?? So I can fit in well?? Hmmm tough…”

Unfortunately, the new Man City striker was quick to dismiss the suggestion that he could emulate Jack Grealish’s faded side trimmings.

Although he later decided to stick with his trademark long locks for now.

But while Haaland won’t be copying his hair anytime soon, Grealish still thinks the Norwegian will be unstoppable when fully fit.

“He’s a great guy, a brilliant guy. The first day I met him we took a car together and even after that ride I was like ‘what a guy,'” Grealish said.

“He’s so down to earth and completely outspoken with the way he is. You get used to this.

“He looked good in training and once he’s in full fitness there’s no stopping him. I can’t wait to play with him and I’m really looking forward to it.
