Asamoah Gyan Agrees To Cut 'Unethical Hairstyle

As fans of Sunderland will be well aware, Asamoah Gyan is a man who likes a trip to the barbers.

Asamoah Gyan is among 46 players in the United Arab Emirates whose clubs have been sent a warning letter regarding their "unethical hair".

The freaky news comes from the Middle Eastern football website Ahdaaf, which has revealed the new rules in a series of tweets.

The 31-year-old Ghanaian is now on a season-long loan at Arabian Gulf League side, Al Ahli, based in Dubai.

Gyan is among 40 players to have been punished for the crime.

According to the UAEFA's disciplinary code, having an "unusual or queer haircut or colouring" is a violation which can result in a fine of up to Dhs3000, and a two-match ban.

According to the BBC, some Islamic teachings ban "Qaza" hairstyles because only part of the head is shaved, leaving other parts unshaven.

Ahdaaf says that dozens of other players are in trouble, including Suhail al-Mansoori, who boasts an nearly identical barnet to Abdulrahman, prompting even more confusion over the guidelines.

Gyan, who is on loan at Al Ahli from Shanghai SIPG, has been deemed to have "unethical hair".
