‘Do Are Ya? Vedran Corluka’s beard
Croatian comes up with excuse not to shave
Superstitious Spurs full-back Vedran Corluka has vowed not to shave as long as his side remain unbeaten under Harry Redknapp. The Croatian – who wouldn’t have found it too difficult to keep clean-shaven under Juande Ramos – has been letting his beard grow since Redknapp’s first game in charge.
Corluka said: “When the new manager arrived I told him I wouldn’t shave if we didn’t lose. After we beat Bolton. our first win this season. I didn’t shave. Then I said I’d do the same if we didn’t lose to Arsenal. Now I’ve almost got a beard.”
His former club, Manchester City, have the opportunity to inflict the old Gillette on his tomorrow.
