Mario Balotelli has gone blond!
The Italian's haircuts have become a huge topic for discussion in recent weeks and we guessed he had been to the stylist again before the trip to Liverpool.
Suspicions were aroused on Friday when Mario refused to remove his headgear for Sharon Latham - his favourite MCFC snapper – fuelling rumours he had something new and interesting hiding under his hat.
Now thanks to our lenswoman's persistence we can reveal all.
The October Player of the Month has been in superb scoring form of late whatever the pattern atop his cranium. Here are a few previous Mario masterpieces...
The design he first premiered earlier this month....
But with Mario it's old hat the moment the barber has finished.
This was a more full-headed design from last season.
The one below is a mini-Mohican - very smart.
Or how about this?
As for the new look - if there is one - we'll have to wait until Sunday to find out... knowing Mario he could just be in a mischievous mood.
