Dad admits he's behind crazy haircut of Everton's Fellaini

The father of Everton star Marouane Fellaini admits he's the inspiration behind his son's famous barnet.

Dad Abdullah Tef was a goalkeeper with Tangiers before joining Belgian side Boom in the 1970s and then working as a bus driver.

Abdullah told The Sun: "Aah, his hair. You know this hairstyle was very much in fashion in the 1970s. Marouane saw pictures of me from those days and he decided to do it.

"He never used to have his hair like this when he was a kid, it was always short. Many Everton supporters are now wearing wigs to match his hairstyle, it's so funny.

"Marouane was laughing his head off when he first saw them. It shows how the fans have taken to him and it makes him proud but also inspires him to do even better for them."
