Arsene Wenger has had a haircut.
The Frenchman, blessed with a healthy head of luscious greying locks, appears to have treated himself to trim since the Gunners beat Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday.
While it’s not known who undertook the cut or where it took place, Arseblog News is led to believe the boss asked for ‘a tidy up around the back and sides and a bit off the top’.
Despite an uncertain future and being under intense pressure the 67-year-old, unlike other attention-seeking peers, opted against having a harsh, close crop that could have led to suggestions he’s preparing for war in the final weeks of the season.
Of course, Wenger’s new ‘do’, unveiled at a press conference on Tuesday morning, comes in stark contrast to the cornrowed look sported by right-back Hector Bellerin at the weekend.
The ‘buzz’ in Spain is that Wenger’s conservative style highlights a growing tension with the Spanish right-back that could see the 22-year-old try and force a ‘perm’anent move to Barcelona.
That suggestion is obviously ‘undercut’ by the fact the Academy graduate is ‘knot’ a ‘fringe’ player at the Emirates having signed a new deal in November that keeps him at the club until 2023.
Arseblog News is also aware that despite trying to lure Alexis Sanchez to sign a new deal at the club, at no point has Wenger teased the Chilean with a promise to sign his international teammate ‘Vidal so soon’.
