While he was plying his trade in North London for Arsenal, Ivorian striker Gervinho was ridiculed as much for his dodgy hairdo as he was for his lack of prowess in front of goal.
And although the striker has rediscovered the art of goalscoring following his switch to Italian side Roma, it seems that he can’t escape ridicule from the football fashion police at the Emirates Stadium, with Gunners fans on Twitter having a field day after a striking photo of Gervinho without his customary hairband started doing the rounds.
Maybe Gervinho should keep the headband on… pic.twitter.com/7KXJ1UxH1i

LOL Gervinho’s hairline goes so far back it’s 1989.

However the Roma man will be having the last laugh, as he enjoys a successful start to the season including two goals and an assist against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League last week. Arsenal fans’ trolling may be tinged with a hint of jealousy…
