Former Manchester United midfielder David Beckham has revealed how Sir Alex Ferguson forced him to shave off his famous Mohawk in the Wembley Stadium toilets.
Beckham told talk show host Graham Norton how cross Ferguson was when he pitched up at the ground with the outrageous haircut ahead of their Charity Shield match with Chelsea back in 2000.
The midfielder told Norton how Sir Alex ordered him to get rid of the hairstyle before he ran out at Wembley.
"I was in the dressing room with an hour to go before kick off when Sir Alex Ferguson saw it and made me shave it off," Beckham said on the Graham Norton Show.
"I said no at first and then I saw his face change very quickly, so I went and shaved it off in the toilet. He was very strict.
"It was the reputation of the club, he wanted all the players to look professional and he felt it wasn’t the right look. We were playing at Wembley too, so he kind of had a point!"
Beckham also spoke of the fallout between him and Sir Alex during his time at Manchester United, and insists it’s all water under the bridge now.
"We get on. It was made worse than it actually was. He was a father figure for me for so many years," added Beckham.
"He brought me to the club that I loved as a kid and I was successful at the club, so he gave me everything in my career.
"He will always be a man that I look up to because he gave me the dream of playing for Man United.
"The was no olive branch. We just bumped into each other at certain occasions after I left Manchester United.
"We never discussed the falling out, there were things that upset me and there were definitely things that upset him about me, but I have so much respect for him as a manager and as a man and he gave me my dream."
Beckham made 265 appearances for Manchester United and scored 62 goals along the way.
