Photo: Arsene Wenger talks Cesc Fabregas through the worst decision he ever made

Check out the mullet on Cesc Fabregas when he was an Arsenal teenager.

Joining Chelsea is not the only questionable decision Cesc Fabregas has made in his career.

Barcelona fans of course were furious at his switch to Arsenal, but when he got there he looked anything but a modern day footballer.

While Cesc was gliding around the pitches for Arsenal after breaking into the first team at just 16-years-old, he did so sporting a mullet haircut straight out of the 80s.

He is seen pictured with manager Arsene Wenger having a discussion at the training ground back in 2004, looking intently at what the Frenchman has to say.

Fabregas' dodgy barnet did not last long, but it was long enough. Call it a mistaken teenage phase.

The midfielder would blossom into a leader in Arsenal's side, taking on the club captaincy before departing back to Barceona in 2011. It is remarkable to consider he is still just 27-years-old.

Last summer he made a decision almost as bold as that terrible haircut, making a Premier League return with Chelsea after the Gunners chose not to re-sign him.

He is poised to make his first return to The Emirates this weekend, having helped the Blues to a 2-0 win over Arsenal this season at Stamford Bridge.
