The man only turned slightly gray
Valderrama’s mane is still striking today
Carlos Valderrama has always been an eye-catcher on the football field, thanks to his style of play, but above all because of his hairstyle. Even at the age of sixty, nothing has changed.

His playing style is still deceptive. His movements are still active, albeit a little slower than before. And his hairstyle is still reminiscent of a lion on the lawn: even at the age of 60, Colombian football legend Carlos Valderrama is still an icon on the field.
On the weekend, “The Man” danced across the field again. As part of the “Beautiful Game” charity match – which was organized by former Brazilian stars Ronaldinho (42) and Roberto Carlos (49) – Valderrama put on his football boots again. The fact that the former Colombian captain (111 games, 11 goals, 3 World Cup matches) ended his career in 2002 wasn’t really clear.
Roberto Carlos’s team scored 22 goals
Compared to some of the other veterans on the field, Valderrama was still in pretty good shape. As in his active days, many friendship bracelets fluttered on his wrists. The playful beard on the playmaker’s face has also survived over the years.
There is only one detail that fits Valderrama’s nickname “el Pibe” (the boy): the gorgeous curly head – previously visibly bleached – is now slightly gray. The hairstyle is still striking.
By the way: Roberto Carlos’s team with Valderrama in the squad won the kick for good reason at 12:10. (cat)
