Football is one of the few professions in the World where you have the freedom to get a hairstyle of your choice without attracting trouble from your bosses. In recent years, Mohawk has been the most popular style with footballers but we still have others who prefer a more traditional ponytail look. Today, we want to sample five of the best ponytails in football. Which one do you like the most?
5. Andy Carroll- West Ham
West Ham striker Andy Carroll is the only current England player with a ponytail. David Beckham and David Seaman formerly of Manchester United and Arsenal respectively did it before him.
The English striker is a threat in the air. He has a massive presence in the box and Coaches like bringing him on late in the match to cause havoc and create scoring opportunities. However, the former Liverpool star has struggled with injuries in recent years.
4. Loris Karius- Liverpool
Liverpool under-fire goalkeeper Loris Karius has reportedly agreed to a 2-year loan deal to move to Turkish side Besiktas. The German shot-stopper Reds career was effectively ended by two costly mistakes against Real Madrid in UEFA Champions League final in June this year. The Los Blancos punished him accordingly and the trophy was gone. The goalie ponytail makes him easy to recognize.
3. Hector Bellerin- Arsenal
Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has one of the youngest and most complete ponytails in football today. The Spaniard is a dependable warrior for the Gunners. Barcelona gave up on him after the Premier League club refused to sell him. Unai Emery will no doubt want him to stay at Emirates for years to come.
