Liverpool are on the verge of their first ever Premier League title and first league championship in 24 years.
The buzz around the city is understandably at its peak, with fans looking forward to finally seeing their beloved reds lift a trophy that has so famously eluded them.
But there’s one fan who will be breathing a sigh of relief for a completely different reason. Ukë Krasniqi decided in 2003 that he would not cut his hair again until Liverpool won a league title.
Eleven years later and, bizarrley, the Kosovan Reds fan has kept to his end of the deal and is waiting eagerly to see whether Brendan Rodgers’ side are about to finally allow him the chance to chop his David Luiz like locks off once and for all.
The video below sees Ukë talk about his self-imposed pact and how he can’t wait for it to all end in glory by seeing Steven Gerrard lift the Premier League trophy in a few weeks time.
The interview is in Kosovan, but he can be quoted as saying: “Since 2003 I started to grow my hair spontaneously. So far Liverpool have won all other titles but not the Championship. Now we are so close.
“Even if we are declared Champions earlier, I will keep my hair until May 11. I want my hair when Steven Gerrard will lead us to the Championship against Newcastle.”
