When asked whether he might ever consider dying his hair – perhaps blue, or red – Man Utd footballer Nemanja Matic showed a more than dry sense of humour in his answer:
“No, I have kids – if I do that my son is going to do the same; I have to have serious hair like Gary Neville.”
He also dismissed the idea of adopting a dance routine when he scores. “No, I’m just simple.”
Simple maybe. But very self-aware too.
