For the second time in a week, the football association of the United Arab Emirates has issued a fine for wearing’ unethical hair’. Caio, a Brazilian left-wing side of top club Al-Ain, has shaved his haircut on both sides and has therefore had to pay a fine of EUR 219.
Earlier, the Moroccan right outside Mourad Batna of Al-Wahda was punished for wearing a haircut that, according to the Disciplinary Committee, was not acceptable. Just as in Saudi Arabia, action is being taken in the United Arab Emirates against al-Qaza. That is the description for shaving a part of the hair.
Wearing such hairstyles is considered an attempt to imitate’ disbelievers’. Caio and Batna are certainly not the first players to be punished for their hairstyle; just last year, Asamoah Gyan was forced to pay a fine.
