Liverpool Treble winner unrecognisable with bald head and heavy stubble now going by name DJ Bavaria

A LIVERPOOL treble winner looks completely different after doing a full U-turn on his look.

The former defender played for Liverpool for four years, helping the club to lift an FA Cup, League Cup and Uefa Cup treble in 2001.

But since then, he has swapped a clean cut face and head of hair for a stubble beard and shaven head.

And in retirement he has not stopped pursuing another of his passions.

The 50-year-old now goes by the DJ name of “DJ Bavaria,” in reference to his homeland of Germany.

The German starred alongside a host of Anfield legends in his time at the club in the early 2000s.

Among them were Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen, Emile Heskey and Jamie Carragher.

Standing at 6ft 2″, the defender arrived at Anfield in 2000 after starring for Bayern Munich for almost a full decade prior.

His time at the Reds was short but sweet, collecting an assortment of seven trophies including the 2001 treble in 73 appearances before leaving in 2004 to return to Germany to finish his career with VfB Stuttgart in 2007.

But in 2003 the 51-cap German also went on loan to Blackburn Rovers, where he made 28 appearances.

Have you managed to figure out who it is?

Well if not then the answer to your question is: Markus Babbel.

Babbel managed 60 appearances during the 2000/01 season as Liverpool lifted the treble and came third in the Premier League.

The defender then came down with the rare Guillain-barre syndrome just one month into the following season, seeing him not play again in the Prem until November 2002 before being sidelined again.

Eventually, Babbel made a full recovery from the condition, but having fallen out of favour at Liverpool he then moved to Blackburn in the final year of his career in England.

Following retirement, Babbel moved into coaching.

He managed Stuttgart, Hertha Berlin, Hoffenheim and FC Luzern before his most recent job at Western Sydney from 2018 until 2020.
