Zlatan Ibrahimovic shows off dramatic bald look – but fans suspect AC Milan star is faking shaved head

ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC has stunned fans by unveiling a shocking bald look... but some aren't convinced the striker has axed his famous top knot.

The AC Milan ace has sported long hair for most of his career with his iconic ponytail becoming synonymous with his look in recent years.

Ibrahimovic, 39, has netted 12 goals in just eight Serie A starts this season - with only Cristiano Ronaldo above him in the scoring charts.

Yet he drew a rare blank for the league leaders this weekend as they fell to a surprise 3-0 home defeat to Atalanta on Saturday.

But the Swede still managed to grab the headlines by apparently unveiling a new hairdo on Instagram, alongside the caption: "All in."

One fan tweeted: "Looking like Stone Cold Steve Austin, as if defenders weren’t scared before, now they’ll be terrified."

Another said: "Serie A aint ready, bald Zlatan seems more dangerous."

A third added: "Bald Zlatan looks like an extra from Game of Thrones."

However, some suspicious fans noted that a mysterious smudge behind the ex-Manchester United striker's head may have been the giveaway sign of some Photoshop shenanigans.

When Ibra is not sending fans wild on social media, he is busy helping Diogo Dalot settle in Italy.

The Portuguese full-back has recaptured his form on-loan in Milan after falling out of favour at Old Trafford.

And after missing out on the chance to play with Ibrahimovic during his two-year stint at the Red Devils, the 21-year-old has credited the Swedish international for bettering him.
