Chelsea star Willian loses his afro
The Brazilian star has become a cult figure at the Blues since his arrival in the summer.
Willian will line-up for Chelsea against Tottenham in today’s Premier League clash. Fans at Stamford Bridge, however, are in store for a surprise when the Blues’ number 22 walks onto the pitch.
On the eve of the game the 25-year-old has shaved off his trademark afro-style hairdo.
Willian posted a picture on his official Instagram account of a barber just about to start on the job with a razor.
William has made 30 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea this season and will be looking forward to continuing his impressive form against the club he almost joined in the summer.
The midfielder was on the brink of signing for Spurs before changing his mind in the final minutes of negotiations and opting to join cross-city rivals Chelsea.
The last time Spurs won at Stamford Bridge was in 1990 when Willian was just two years old.
