    Asamoah Gyan deemed to have 'unethical hair' in United Arab Emirates

    Gyan was recently in action for Ghana at the African Cup of Nations
    Former Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan is among a group of more than 40 players deemed to have "unethical hair" under United Arab Emirates Football Association (UAEFA) guidelines.
    The 31-year-old Ghanaian is on loan at Dubai-based Arabian Gulf League side Al Ahli from Shanghai SIPG.
    Some Islamic teachings ban 'Qaza' hairstyles, where only part of the head is shaved.
    Individual match referees judge whether players' haircuts are appropriate.
    Some match officials in the United Arab Emirates enforce the rules because they are concerned about children copying the styles.
    Similar guidelines have been enforced in neighbouring countries. In 2012, Saudi Arabia goalkeeper Waleed Abdullah was told to cut his "un-Islamic" hair by the referee before playing for his club side Al Shabab.
    The UAEFA sends a player's club a warning letter in the first instance, with punishments escalating to a fine and then a suspension if he does not comply.
    Gyan is one of 46 players at the warning letter stage.
    According to Middle Eastern football website Ahdaaf, Al Wahda's Suhail Al-Mansoori (pictured below) was told to cut his hair while UAE international and 2016 Asian footballer of the year Omar Abdulrahman, who sports a similar style and also plays in the Arabian Gulf League, was let off.

    FIFA should make the players play barefoot, which will eliminate the "studs up" tackle.

    I don't dare think what the UAE would make of my hairy toes. Perhaps I need to give them a morality test?

    I would ban anything in football that's dayglo (how the hell do you spell that?) that isn't the ball itself (and only then if it's a snow storm, otherwise white will do).

    Over-weight, sulky Morrocans should be banned from football.

    They always disappoint.
