Jose Mourinho has revealed the story behind his striking new haircut.
The Tottenham manager shocked fans this week by revealing his completely shaved head and admitted it was as a result of drifting off while at the barbers in London.
Mourinho told Sky Sports: “Sometimes I like to [cut it short] sometimes I like to feel the cold weather, I like to change it a little bit. But this time was not the case.
“I fell asleep [in the barber’s chair] and when I woke up it was so bad that I said to him ‘bring the one’. Hopefully, it will grow back.”
The Spurs boss is not the only one who has fallen victim to a mishap at the barbers.

talkSPORT’s Ally McCoist came out with a skinhead look on a recent trip.
It’s one of the most Scottish things to happen ever, as it turns out the language barrier was to blame!
Barely holding back the laughter, a crestfallen McCoist said on the Sports Breakfast: “Oh man, I’ve had a disaster!
“I went into my normal barbers, a wee Turkish boy in Renfrew, and I looked him and thought, ‘there’s something different about him today’.
“I thought it was the same guy, but I can now inform you it wasn’t the same guy – it was his brother.
“So, I sat down in the chair, he looks at me and I say, ‘ach normal one’, because I go in all the time!
“He looks at me and says, ‘all over?’”
“‘Yeah’, I said and Al, I’m not kidding you, he got that big razor thing and drew a big tramline! He started right up the middle of my head!
“He must’ve looked at me and my jaw has clearly hit the barber’s floor.
“He went, ‘number one?’
“And I said, ‘NORMAL one ya stupid-looking…’
“Anyway, it was a disaster!
“I mean 15 years ago, frankly, I wouldn’t have bothered my bunnet, but it might not be back, that’s my point!
“If you’d seen my face when he drew that big tramline right up the middle of my nappa!”
