Asamoah Gyan Ghanaian striker gets warning for his 'unethical hair'

Asamoah Gyan is one of 40 players to fall foul of the guidelines

A group of more than 40 players in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have been found guilty - of sporting "unethical hair" in breach of the country's Football Association (FA) rules.

He now sports a distinctive mohawk style cut, which is banned by the Saudi rule.

The 31 year old, is contracted to Shanghai SIPG but is now in the midst of a loan spell at Ah Ahli.

The rules are derived from Islamic teachings, some of which ban "Qaza" hairstyles, which include mohawks, because only part of the head is shaved, leaving other parts unshaven.

The warning letters sent to players are part of a move to prevent the footballers from influencing children.

The same issue cropped up in the Saudi Arabian league in 2012, when Waleed Abdullah, a goalkeeper for Al Shabab, was famously ordered to have a pitch-side haircut when a referee took offence at his mohawk-like style. He has been warned in a letter to change his haircut, says the BBC.

Ahdaaf says that dozens of other players are in trouble, including Suhail al-Mansoori, who boasts an nearly identical barnet to Abdulrahman, prompting even more confusion over the guidelines.
