IT is not very often footballers have bad hair days considering how much they’re in the limelight.
But even that term would be generous for 18-year-old Victor Guzman after Club Tijuana gave him a celebratory new haircut to replicate Brazil legend Ronaldo.
In 2002, the striker stunned viewers when he turned up at the World Cup replicating his iconic barnet.
So when Guzman broke into the Tijuana senior squad for the first time, they thought it was fitting to give him a similar haircut.
However, if you thought Ronaldo’s was bad, then Guzman’s was on a different level.
His side appeared to purposely make a botch job with the trimmer, leaving patches of hair around a predominantly bald head.
Even the growth of hair at the front of his head was shaped at different lengths.
According to talkSPORT, Club Tijuana make it a tradition to give the youngsters an initiation haircut when they break into the first-team.
With the pictures going viral on social media, fans were quick to comment with one saying: “What did they do it with? A garden strimmer?”
Another added: “They’ve had a howler with this trim!”
Meanwhile Ronaldo revealed he went for his dodgy haircut to deflect attention away from a leg injury.
He said: “I had an injury in my leg and everybody was talking about that.
“I decided to cut my hair and leave the small thing there. I come to training and everybody saw me with bad hair.
“Everybody was talking about the hair and forgot about the injury. I could stay more calm and relaxed and focused on my training.
“I’m not proud about the hair itself because it was pretty strange. But it was a good way to change the subject.”
