Jack Grealish gets title-winning trim as fans worry star will adopt ‘Cristiano Ronaldo noodle hair’
JACK GREALISH was compared with two ex-Manchester United hair-oes after the City star had a title-winning trim.
Most cuttingly, one fan compared the midfielder’s snip to Cristiano Ronaldo “noodle” style blond streaks.

And another labelled the England ace “the David Beckham of Wish”.
But most observers were were more generous with their verdict as a clip of Grealish having frosted tips added to his slicked back undercut was posted by a stylist.
Pep Guardiola’s men overturned Arsenal‘s eight-point lead to win their third Premier League crown in a row with three games to spare.
And in the first of those matches they rested their big names yet still beat Chelsea 1-0 amid an Etihad title party on Sunday.
So fans were delighted to see Grealish, 27, relaxing during downtime.
He was shown texting during his haircut – before whipping off the hairdresser’s cape covering his body to reveal he was wearing just shorts.
But one viewer referenced Ronaldo‘s notorious noodle style, which the 38-year-old has dabbled with over the past two decades.
Grealish might normally be flattered to win comparisons with the legendary five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

And the day after team-mate Erling Haaland turned the air blue by dropping the F-bomb on Grealish during a live TV interview, the ex-Aston Villa skipper turned streaks of his hair blond ala the Portugal striker.
He didn’t go the full Ron way, however, as one fan noted: “Thought he gonna transform into Ronaldo noodle hair.”
Another poster wrote: “Champions haircut for my guy @jackgrealish fully deserved.”
Similar compliments included: “He’s always got great hair” … “King” … and “very nice”.
And one fan said: “With a matte product finish and without the hair band jacks hair looks so hot.”
But one observer spotted Grealish was slouching over his phone.
She wrote: “He really needs to show some respect, get off his phone and sit up straight.”
But surely after such an incredible season – and with a club Treble still possible – Grealish should be cut some slack.
