What's the secret to Toby's hair?

Posted on 24 November 2015  - 16:15

How Toby Alderweireld keeps his hair looking so immaculate is a question which has puzzled our fans on social media for months - so we got the inside line from our Belgian centre-back!

Come rain or shine, clean sheet or towering header, Toby’s barnet remains in pristine condition, but how does he do it? “There’s no secret, it’s all in the product,” Toby explained after climbing highest from Christian Eriksen’s corner to head to in his second of the season as we brushed aside West Ham.

“I’m not as busy with my hair as people think! It only takes one minute to do - it moves sometimes and I see it move but I almost never touch my hair during the game, I just leave it.”

There’s certainly been no need for any hairdryer treatment so far this season - our defensive unit has gelled well.

With Toby and national team-mate Jan Vertonghen mainstays in the centre of defence we’ve conceded just 11 times in the Premier League and boast the joint-second best defence.

However, once he’s let the football do the talking and gets back into the dressing room, Toby ensures there isn’t a hair out of place.

“I try to do my hair as well as possible before the game but I think before the warm-up is the last time I look at it and then I just leave it.

“After the game I have a look at it again and make sure it’s in good shape. One time Spurs TV can film it!”

We may just have to take Toby up on that offer...
