Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that he once refused to sign a player because of his mohawk haircut.
During his time at Norwegian club Molde, Solskjaer revealed he traveled with a member of his scouting staff to watch a potential signing but was put off by the player’s hairstyle.
“I once went to see a player and as he walked out of the dressing room or through the tunnel onto the pitch, he had a mohican, this was when I was back in Norway,” he told Sky Sports.
“I just said to my scout: ‘Let’s go home, not interested.’ That was a very short scouting trip.”
With nine league games remaining, United are second and poised to secure consecutive top-four finishes for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
Sources have told ESPN that United remain committed to handing Solskjaer a new deal and his future does not depend on lifting a trophy this season.
