Pictures of Gor Mahia’s central defender has been trending after he opted for a vintage white beard as his look for the upcoming AFCON.
Besides football skills, a beard is one of the most recognisable things out on a football pitch but Kenyans have questioned the age of Joash Onyango after his beards portrayed a different image of him.
What could be the motivation behind his new look?
There is a rich history of weird and wonderful facial hair on footballers that has either left fans purring in admiration or left them wondering if the money has gone to their head.
It’s AFCON and it’s now all beards on the pitch.
Here is what Kenyans think of Joash Onyango’s AFCON Look.
