The Belgian midfielder has become a cult legend in the Premier League for his hair.
After his £27.5 million move from Everton last summer he struggled.
He struggled for form and fitness in his debut season. The Belgian found himself in for criticism from the media and fans throughout most of the season and became almost a figurehead for Manchester United's rapid demise.
During that time he became almost a simple pantomime villain. He was new at the club, personified the actions of new manager David Moyes and was not performing at the club.
On top of that, he had the hair to match what he became, an almost clown like figure at Old Trafford.
Now the Manchester United midfielder has been asked, during what was a far more serious conversation in The Times, whether he would ever consider shaving off the infamous afro.
His response was swift:
“It’s my style and I’m staying like that.
“You either like me or you don’t like me. It’s not my problem. I don’t care. Some people were saying I should have my hair cut and that would change everything, but that is just stupid.”
The hair is here to stay and judging by the growing amount of wigs being spotted among the Old Trafford sea of red, Manchester United fans will be pleased to hear that.
