Marouane Fellaini in Controversy Over Date of Birth

Since Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini showed off his new hairstyle on the internet, fans and football lovers from around the world have expressed different feelings about it.

Fellaini released the photos with the caption “New year, new look #birthdaytommorow”, clearly indicating that November 15 is his birthday.

What is surprising is that according to his Wikipedia page, the Belgian international was born on November 22, 1987, which is seven days after the footballer indicated as his birthday.

This begs the question, does Fellaini not know his own birth date? This will seem unusual for someone who is 30 years old and had been celebrating for those years. Or does Wikipedia not know the footballer’s real birth date? this will seem more probable as the online encyclopedia is known to use independent editors for their pages.

Whatever the case may be, it will take a bit of getting used to, to come to terms with Fellaini’s new haircut considering that his afro has been a trademark since his debut in August 2006.
