Former Manchester United star Nani showed off a new long blonde haircut during Orlando City’s MLS opener against Atlanta United on Saturday.

Nani, who has spent the last two years with Orlando after departing Sporting Lisbon in 2019, could not inspire Oscar Pareja’s side to an opening victory at the Exploria Stadium.

The American outfit were instead held to a 0-0 draw with Atlanta, failing to get their season off to a winning start.

One of the biggest talking points of the game was Nani’s striking new hairstyle, with the Portuguese ace adopting a long blonde ponytail and shaved sides.

Fans were taken aback by his barnet on social media, with one putting: “Bloody hell”.

Another put: “Lol. Midlife crisis already?”

While one simply asked: “What is this?”

Nani has scored 21 goals in 59 games for Orlando since heading to the States in 2019.

The 34-year-old is best known for his seven-year stint at Old Trafford, which saw him score 40 goals in 230 appearances for United.

He played a key part in four Premier League title triumphs with the Red Devils, while also getting his hands on two League Cups and the Champions League.

After spending the 2014/15 campaign on loan at Sporting, Nani left United in 2015 to join Fenerbahce.

    “It was Louis van Gaal. The year before we had changed too, it was [David] Moyes.

    “When [Sir Alex] Ferguson left, I also wanted to leave. I thought it was the right time because things had happened that had not made me happy.”
