‘That alone was worth a sending off’… Diego Simeone’s hair ridiculed by football fans

The *real* major talking point from Arsenal v Atletico Madrid


Thursday night’s Europa League semi-final at The Emirates was a pretty big deal.

Not only was it the final European home game Arsene Wenger would oversee as Arsenal manager, but the club’s ambitions of returning to the Champions League next season were also resting on it.

But never mind all that shit.

Let’s talk about what *really* matters to football fans: the absolute state of Diego Simeone’s hair.

The former Argentina international, one of about 60 names in the frame to replace Wenger as Arsenal manager, grabbed the attention of many watching the early stages of the game thanks to the appearance of his hair.

Sadly, it was *just* the early stages. Following an early sending off for Šime Vrsaljko, Simeone failed to control his anger when the referee decided not to book an Arsenal player for a mistimed challenge. He, along with his hairdo, was promptly sent to the stands.
