Dimitar Berbatov’s spectacular hair was the talk of Soccer Aid on Sunday night

The before and after pictures are quite something.

Dimitar Berbatov scored twice for the Rest of the World in their 3-2 defeat to England during the annual Soccer Aid clash at Old Trafford on Sunday, but his goalscoring exploits weren't the main topic of conversation.


The former Manchester United striker linked up brilliantly with the legendary Ronaldinho, who spent most of his night ripping the piss out of his celebrity opponents.

And while everyone was talking about Mark Wright's impressive free kick skills and Sam Allardyce's physical affection for Niall Horan, a lot of the chatter about the charity event centred on Berbatov's new-look hair.

Even before he left the Premier League, the flowing black locks the Bulgarian once sported at Spurs and Manchester United were diminishing fast.

This was Berba at Monaco just last year...

during the AS Monaco press conference ahead of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 match against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on February 24, 2015 in London, United Kingdom.

At Old Trafford on Sunday, he turned up looking newly endowed with a rich head of hair.


Many watching couldn't help but be impressed, while others were quick to point out that Wayne Rooney could probably do with getting some contact details off his former teammate.



What a man.
