Andrei Arshavin has such a lack of trust for his grasp of English and/or London-based hair stylists that he flies his old hairdresser in from St Petersburg when the need arises. Stylist Denis Volkov has confirmed the agreement in Russian newspapers.
He said: “We agreed that I’ll fly over to London when necessary. He’s going to be very busy for the next couple of months and it’s unlikely he’ll have time to use my services in St Petersburg.”
But why? It looked like Arshavin had being given a trim before Arsenal’s match at Fulham and, as far as OTP can tell, whoever last had their hands on Arshavin’s bonce has left him with a series of randomly occurring bald patches.
