Finally, Campo Shaves FacePosted: February 21, 2008
Ivan Campo has given in to requests from team mates and shaved off his excess facial hair.
Campo, who was born in a forest and raised by wolves, suffers from a condition which causes hair to grow all over his face. If left to grow, it covers his cheeks, forehead, nose and tongue. In recent months, Campo had stopped shaving his face and was said to resemble "a Royal Grenadier’s busby."
He finally decided to shave when he could no longer see the ball in training. "Ivan’s a lovely lad and always the last to leave the training ground", said manager Gary Megson. "But that’s mainly because he couldn’t find the gate to let himself out."
