Liverpool ace Meireles proud of his English barnet

Raul Meireles is happy with his new Scouse haircut at Liverpool.

Meireles, 27, touched down in his home country with a ­ haircut that might not be ­recognised - despite six years at Porto before his £11.5m summer switch to Liverpool.

And Meireles said: "This is the ­English style! After my first game, against Birmingham, I saw a photo in the paper and I was crossing the ball.

"In the picture it looked like I did not have hair. So I cut it off.

"My daughter shaved it off. She is six. It is a little dangerous, but I trust her. I am happy with the job she did. It was not because everyone looks tough. I did not like that photo.

"The weather, with the wind and the rain, it is not good for your hair! I am better this way."
