The former Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan has been found to have “unethical hair” under strict United Arab Emirates Football Association rules (UAEFA) – one of 46 players to fall foul of the law.
The Ghanaian striker, who scored 10 goals during a successful season at Sunderland in 2010/11, is currently on loan at the Arabian Gulf League side Al Ahli, from Chinese Super League outfit Shanghai SIPG.
He currently sports a distinctive mohawk style cut, which is banned by the Saudi rule.
They are moderate, indeed. The fundamentalists would ban football.
