Son Asks Dad For Haircut Like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gives Him 'R9' Ronaldo Instead

Son Asks Dad For Haircut Like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gives Him 'R9' Ronaldo Instead

With no way to get to the barbers, a number of people in the UK have been getting trimmed up at home during self-isolation, with even David Beckham, the master of style, reverting back to his classic shaved head look from back on the day.

But one dad went for something a bit left-field when he gave his son the Ronaldo Nazario 2002 World Cup look, much to his surprise.

In a video which has gone viral, the lad, wearing a Chelsea shirt, explains to his old man that he wants to have the same haircut as 'Ronaldo' and shows him a picture of Cristiano in a Juventus shirt.

However, the dad had other ideas and decided to make his lad look like the Brazilian Ronaldo with his half a haircut.

The son, incensed by the trim he sees when he looks in the mirror, calls his dad a "dickhead" - while he just laughs hysterically and quips, "There's only Ronaldo!" - bringing up a picture of the 'O Fenomeno'.

Incredibly, he isn't the only one to be sporting the infamous look in recent times.

Everton and Brazilian forward Richarlison copied R9's haircut.


But what was the reason why Ronaldo opted for such a mad style en route to scoring eight goals winning the World Cup? Well, he revealed that he donned that famous style to draw attention from a leg injury he was harbouring.

"I decided to cut my hair and leave the small thing there. I come to training and everybody saw me with bad hair," Ronaldo is quoted as saying on the matter.

"Everybody was talking about the hair and forgot about the injury. I could stay more calm and relaxed and focused on my training.

"I'm not proud about the hair itself because it was pretty strange. But it was a good way to change the subject."
