It seems Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini forgot his own birthday after unveiling a new haircut to mark the occasion a week too soon.
Marouane Fellaini has lost his distinctive black afro, and shared the fresh trim with his Twitter followers on Wednesday along with the hashtag ‘birthdaytomorrow’.
However, according to Fellaini’s account, the Man Utd website and various online sources, his birthday is next Thursday on November 22nd.
The cause of the confusion remains unclear, but Fellaini tweeted: “New year, new look #birthdaytomorrow.”
Fellaini has rarely changed from the trademark afro he has sported since his emergence at Belgian club Standard Liege, with fans at former club Everton fond of wearing wigs in homage.
