Jerome Boateng debuts new hairstyle at Bayern Munich training session

Lionel Messi embarrasses Cillessen at Barca training, Wenger Out chants overtake WWE Raw and much more in The Sweeper.

With the Bundesliga title sewn up and nothing left to play for, Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has dedicated a little extra time to getting his hair game on point.

Indeed, Boateng posted a photograph on social media of himself taking part in Bayern's open training session on Wednesday and promptly received a raft of messages from fans inquiring about his new do.

Sure enough, the 28-year-old centre-half responded with a close-up shot, inviting his followers to share their first impressions.

And oh, the pithy replies rolled in.

In fairness, there are certainly subtle shades of Sesame Street in there somewhere.

However, we've definitely seen worse crimes against fashion committed on a football pitch, many of which were coincidentally made by Boateng's very own half-brother.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
