As a man known as much for his love of his wet look hair gel as his love of embarrassing goalkeepers, yesterday’s match against Tottenham was a neat snapshot of Cristiano Ronaldo’s career.
The Portuguese star showed off his new slicked over hairstyle in the Champions League quarter-final second leg. On the TV it looked like a 1940s-style side-parting, but that doesn’t really come across in these photos.
What we do know is that he probably didn’t appreciate Mesut Ozil rubbing his hands through the new ‘do. Perhaps if Heurelho Gomes had done that before the goal it would have all been so different.
