Rob Green gets mocked for new handlebar moustache and mohawk look

Yes you read that headline right, Rob Green gets mocked on social media for showing off his new handlebar moustache and mohawk look.

The former England number one showed off his new look during an interview on Sky News with the ex-West Ham shot-stopper stunning viewers.

It was just a few months ago Green, who made 12 appearances for England, starting the 2010 World Cup, had previously been seen with a full head of hair with a shaved chin.

Many fans suggested the the coronavirus lockdown took it toll of the 40-year-old and others said he was having a mid-life crisis.

He appeared on the news channel to talk about the big much anticipated return of the Premier League on Wednesday night.

It begins with relegation candidates Aston Villa against high flyers Sheffield United at 6pm, and then Man City against Arsenal at 8:15pm.

Green announced his retirement from football last summer following a 23-year career that ended by celebrating the Europa League win with Premier League side Chelsea.

Days after the trophy lift, he said at the time: “Following an incredible evening in Baku on Wednesday and after a 23 year career spanning three decades, I’ve decided that now is the right time to announce my retirement from professional football.

“Being part of the group and celebrations with such a special squad of players after winning the Europa League seems a fitting way to end what’s been an amazing journey for me in the game.

“I’ve loved every moment and feel privileged to have enjoyed the career I have. I’ve played with, and against, some of best players in the world and have experienced so much that professional football has to offer.

“I’ve had the joy of representing some fantastic clubs, all of whom have helped to shape me in their own varying way. Thank you to all of the fans and everybody connected with Norwich City, West Ham United, Queens Park Rangers, Leeds United, Huddersfield Town and Chelsea. Representing my country will always be one of my proudest achievements and I feel honoured to have played for England.

“Thank you to all of the managers, coaches and staff I’ve worked with and thank you to all of the teammates that I’ve shared a dressing room with over the years. Collectively we’ve shared some amazing times and I leave the game with memories that I’ll always treasure.

“A special thank you must go to my Mum and Dad and entire family for your unwavering support. It means so much for them to have followed and watched nearly all my games, sharing my highs and lows.

“Finally a thank you to my wife and our two children. Thank you for your care and encouragement, it was so special for you to share Wednesday night together with me.

“Looking forward I’m excited about what the future has to offer. I hope to remain connected with the game that’s given me so much in some capacity, whatever that proves to be, but for now I’m just looking forward to having my first summer off in 23 years! Thanks for the memories.”

He started out at Norwich and had spells at West Ham, QPR, Leeds and Huddersfield before moving to Stamford Bridge last summer.
