Retired Serie A footballer turned Ligue 2 club manager, Marco Simone, has the most interesting hairstyle – if “style” is even the right word to call it?

We realise that in the early stages of a relationship (late stages of a very temporary liaison) it’s common to mimic your partner’s mode of dress.

Which is great unless your ‘partner’ happens to be football’s answer to Flavor Flav. We understand that love is blind, Raffaella, but we feel it only appropriate to make sure you’re fully aware of this before you commit to anything.

And to think, some say we’re bitchy. Go figure.
