The Exact Moment Marouane Fellaini Realised He Wanted His Afro Back

It would seem that Marouane Fellaini is really, really missing his trademark afro.

The 31-year-old Manchester United midfielder sent social media into meltdown when he posted a picture of him getting a fresh look last month.

The Belgian international decided that it was time for him to find a replacement set of hair, with Mattéo Guendouzi his latest target.

Fellaini was going in for a challenge on the 19-year-old French midfielder, eventually reaching out and grabbing a chunk of his hair.

Unsurprisingly, football fans think that he has had enough of the short hair and wants his afro to come back very quickly (maybe that's not the best way of going about it, Fellaini).







Shkodran Mustafi opened the scoring for the Gunners after a howler from United 'keeper David de Gea. Anthony Martial equalised for the Red Devils before half-time.

Unai Emery's men would restore their lead in the second half, but that 2-1 advantage would be a short-lived moment after Jesse Lingard opened his account for this season.

United boss José Mourinho wasn't completely disappointed with the result.

"We scored four goals and drew 2-2! As always, we made mistakes and we paid for the mistakes," he said (via BBC Sport).

"Today was more the same, but with great spirit and people ready to have a go and fight hard, it was a credit to the team.

"They went to the limit and were really tired. Some of them had not played all season, Chris Smalling playing in very difficult condition, but Arsenal were only dangerous when we lost the ball in bad areas.

"Even from our bench you could feel the little panic when the ball comes to our defensive third.

"The spirit was Manchester United level, but we miss certain qualities.

"I have to disagree with people who try to compare this to teams of Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Nemanja Vidić. Give us a break and time. I am happy with the soul and heart, but we are not consistent and uniform."

Meanwhile, the Gunners manager felt his side could have clinched the victory at Old Trafford.

"I think we controlled the game, the second half better than the first," he said. "We could have won this match in certain moments, but they equalised very quickly after both our goals.

"We need to improve defensively, but we need to have balance and not lose our attacking chances.

"We perhaps lost a bit of control there, but we created lots of chances after 2-2 and I am very proud of our performance. We wanted to win but we can feel this point is good."

Will United finish in the top four this season?
