South American Football's Initiation Tradition Results In Some Horrendous Haircuts

South American Football's Initiation Tradition Results In Some Horrendous Haircuts

In England, youngsters and new signings are required to do a mandatory initiation song as a way of being accepted into their new surroundings.

Over in South America and Mexico, they do things very differently. Upon their entry to the first-team, the young team players are required to sport some of the worst hairstyles you have ever seen.

The tradition often sees experience first-teamers cut the rookies hair and give them a trim even worse than what you'd expect at a £5 barbers where they don't clean the clippers.

Just look at the state of these Mazatlan FC players. You can't knock the creativity but we genuinely can't work out who has been done over the worst.

That being said, No.34 and No.29 might just take the cake.

The young lads can take some comfort in the fact that they are not an anomaly. Even with context, Diego Simeone's son, Giovanni, had one of the worst haircuts ever during his time at River Plate.

The scissor and clippers combination must have been deadly.

We're betting he didn't utter the usual "Yeah sound that, mate" line after being shown his not-so-fresh haircut in the mirror.
