But in recent times, we’ve seen a growing trend of players opting for unconventional hair colours, with white being a popular choice among many. The use of white hair dye in football has a long and storied history. More recently, players like Paul Pogba and Phil Foden have been seen sporting platinum blonde hairstyles on the pitch. Alejandro Garnacho, the young and rising Manchester United star, is the latest footballer to jump on the white hair bandwagon. This blonde hairdo was seen in a recent training video where Antony removed Garnacho’s beanie to expose his hair for the cameras, which left Garnacho stunned.
After a momentary hiccup at the Etihad earlier this month, Manchester United look firmly back on track. The Erik Ten Hag revolution looks to have resumed, as United have picked up 4 wins in 5 games. Throughout the 90, United dominated proceedings, while displaying a style of football that isn’t entirely the Ten Hag way, featuring some tweaks by the Dutchman. And given everything we’ve seen so far this season, Lisandro Martinez looks to be one of them. In a trend stretching back several weeks, the Argentine has routinely offered messages of encouragement and appreciation to his teammates through Instagram.5 months ago Thick Accent
Cristiano Ronaldo seems to have fallen into a recurring pattern of storming off the pitch whenever he feels a modicum of humiliation. But to be fair, absolutely nothing has gone or worked in favour of the Portuguese striker over the last few months. The team scored two more goals but none of them were to the credit of Cristiano Ronaldo. The night was probably the most humbling day of Cristiano Ronaldo’s fine career because of one simple reason.

The Premier League is the home of some of the best footballers in the world. This is why the Premier League players rank among some of the richest ones in world football. One such footballer is Wolves winger Adama Traore, who remains a fan-favorite at the club despite having spent the second half of last season on loan at Barcelona. A Wolves fan posted a tweet recalling how he had a lovely meet with the Spanish winger recently. The Spanish winger agreed to participate in a small race with the kids, which he understandably came out as the victor.5 months ago Thick Accent
Gregg Berhalter and Claudio Reyna, father of Gio Reyna, played together in high school at St. Benedict’s Prep and also represented the country in the 90s. Gregg’s wife, Rosalind, and Claudio’s wife, Danielle, played the sport together at UNC Chapel Hill and were also roommates and good friends. As is expected, Gregg, now the coach of USMNT, knew Gio Geyna since he was a young child. As mentioned earlier, Rosalind and Danielle were friends at college, even before Rosalind and Gregg got into a relationship. In the midst of it all, Anthony Hudson, an assistant coach in Qatar, has been placed on interim duties for upcoming games.2 months ago Thick Accent
In just 14 appearances (across all competitions) the 22-year-old forward has scored 20 goals and provided 3 assists. While his goal-scoring heroics have made many fans go gaga, Pep Guardiola isn’t just appreciating his new center-forward for the number of goals he’s scoring. Speaking about the 22-year-old’s most admirable trait, Guardiola told ViaPlay: “I was surprised the most about Erling Haaland- how happy he is when his team-mate scores a goal or makes an assist. pic.twitter.com/ol5lh3gsmE — City Report (@cityreport_) October 21, 2022To be fair, Guardiola isn’t really delving too far away from the truth when discussing this particular trait about Haaland. Of course, as he stays a longer period at the Etihad Stadium, closer Haaland should get to his teammates.5 months ago Thick Accent
Todd pushed for the signing of superstar Ronaldo, something that did not sit right with then-manager Thomas Tuchel. Tuchel was subsequently sacked but if current performances are anything to go by, Tuchel may have saved the London club big time. Benjamin Šeško’s agent chilled with Chelsea owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali during the Blues’ encounter with RB Salzburg. Sesko, dubbed as the next Haaland, has been among the goals for Salzburg this season. The forward was linked with Chelsea, among a host of other clubs this summer, with the London club meeting the officials at RB Salzburg for a potential move.5 months ago Thick Accent
