Former Man Utd star and Champions League winner looks unrecognisable with new hairdo three years after retiring

A MANCHESTER UNITED Premier League winner looks unrecognisable after ditching his infamous bleach blonde hair.

The ex-goalkeeper, who turns 41 in March, spent six years at Old Trafford.

He was part of Manchester United’s Champions League winning side in 2007-08

But United were top dogs in English football during that period, which meant he enjoyed a hugely successful period at the club.

Despite only playing 61 games, he won the league on three occasions and the Champions League in 2007-08.

He generally played a bit-part role for the club though, and was eventually sold four years after that famous night in Moscow.

The 6ft3 ace would continue playing for another seven years and stayed in England, turning out for Brighton, Wolves and Birmingham.

His final appearance came in 2017-18, although he officially hung up his boots the following year.

He’s now removed the blonde highlights and is rocking a brunette look, while his barnett looks far tidier than during his playing days.

We can now reveal the mystery footballer as… Tomasz Kuszczak.

The former Poland international was Edwin van der Sar’s understudy for almost his entire United career, playing just 32 times in the Prem.

But he did feature five times in Europe during the Champions League winning season and also started the 2010 League Cup final win against Aston Villa.

Following his retirement, he revealed he still watches the Red Devils and gets as much enjoyment as when he was on the pitch.

He said: “I’ve got two season tickets and I love sitting with the fans.

“I’m just in normal seats, not far from the away fans and I can go and shout the team on. I love it, I love it, it’s great.

“I’m screaming from a different angle now, I used to scream from the goal, now I scream from the stands!”
