Brazil legend Ronaldo reveals reason behind famous 2002 World Cup haircut

Brazil legend Ronaldo has revealed his famous 2002 World Cup haircut was a deliberate distraction to shift attention away from a leg injury before the country’s fifth title.

Ronaldo dazzled in South Korea and Japan 16 years ago, scoring twice in the final as Brazil defeated Germany 2-0 to be crowned world champions.

The 2002 showpiece, though, is best known for Ronaldo’s unique hairstyle and the three-time FIFA World Player of the Year has provided an insight into his decision to shave his head.

“I had an injury in my leg and everybody was talking about that,” Ronaldo said in Melbourne, where he headlined the announcement of Real Madrid’s ‘World of Football Experience’ – an exhibition set to open in June before continuing to tour the world for another five years across 14 cities.


“I decided to cut my hair and leave the small thing there. I come to training and everybody saw me with bad hair.
“Everybody was talking about the hair and forgot about the injury. I could stay more calm and relaxed and focused on my training.
