Jose Mourinho Has Shaved All Of His Hair Off
Jose Mourinho has changed up his look during the brief winter break for Spurs, with new pictures showing the Portuguese manager with a new trim.
The Special One has been known to switch to a buzz-cut from his longer silver locks now and again but it now looks like Mourinho has gone one step further by channelling his inner Pep Guardiola and going incredibly short on top.

It's unclear whether Mourinho uttered the usual "Yeah, sound that mate" as the barber showed him the finished product of his new cut but he was happy to pose for a picture afterwards.

The irony about this whole thing is that Mourinho famously mocked Guardiola for losing his hair and putting it down to him not enjoying his job as a manager.
In 2014, he told BILD: "If you enjoy what you're doing, you don't lose your hair. He's got a bald head. Guardiola doesn't enjoy football."
When he sported a new trim at a press conference during the 2014/15 season, Mourinho denied that his thinner hair was down to the stress that comes with football.
"I promise you I am fine - but I am not happy. I am not used to losing so many times but I am adapting to the challenge," he said, as per the Belgravia Centre.
"My haircut isn't as radical as it has been... the war haircut is shorter than this one".
Recently, United legend Ryan Giggs revealed that he underwent a hair transplant due to the stresses of playing for the Red Devils.
"Football is stressful," Giggs told staff at MHR Clinic, which he has a share in, as per The Mirror.
"You put yourself under pressure. You're aware of the consequences if you lose a game or don't play well.
"You are under the spotlight and if you have a bad game you're aware of the criticism. Then it becomes a little bit more stressful. And stress is related to hair loss."
