With the Premier League and Champions League seasons now over, Wayne Rooney‘s newly installed hair plugs have become the talk of the soccer world. While only 25 years old, the Manchester United star’s receding hairline made him look much older throughout his career and he has now made the decision to tackle the issue head on.
Rooney broke the news of his operation via his Twitter account this weekend by saying “Hi all, there’s my head. It will take a few months to grow. Still a bit bloody too but that’s all normal.” The eight-hour procedure in which hair is removed from the back of the head and inserted into tiny incisions on the scalp, one by one – like planting seeds, cost the England international a staggering £12,000!
Immediately feeling the love from his Manchester United teammate, Rio Ferdinand jokingly tweeted “Can’t wait to see you in the mirror after training styling your locks with loads a products ala ronaldo!” and “You’ll be doing Head & Shoulders adverts soon!”
