Marc Cucurella vows to never cut his hair despite Cristian Romero foul during Chelsea vs Tottenham

Marc Cucurella has vowed to never cut his hair despite the controversy surrounding it after Chelsea’s draw with Tottenham last Sunday.

Deep into stoppage time at Stamford Bridge, with the score at 2-1, Cucurella was fouled in the box by Cristian Romero, after the Argentine had grabbed onto the Spaniard’s distinctive long hair and dragged him to the ground.

Neither the referee nor the VAR officials noticed the incident, and play continued with Harry Kane immediately equalising from the subsequent corner.

This sparked fury among the Chelsea players and their manager Thomas Tuchel, who would get involved in a confrontation with his opposite number Antonio Conte at the full-time whistle, before going onto blast the officials in his post-match interviews.

Cucurella, who joined Chelsea from Brighton in the summer for £62million, has now given his take on the matter, saying: ‘For me it was a clear [foul].

‘In the game, out on the pitch, I didn’t see the video. But I think with the video it is very clear. This is maybe one error by the referee or the VAR.

‘The referee in the stadium said they were checking a red card and for me, it’s very clear. The video is very clear. At this moment, with the referee, I don’t know what happened.

‘But sometimes the referee makes good decisions, sometimes not good decisions. This is football and, in this game, it was an error.

‘This is not my problem. The players are focused on the game and maybe we have to work hard to not concede this goal in the last minute in the next games.’

There have been several notable incidents in the past of players with long hair getting fouled in similar circumstances, with the likes of David Luiz, Marouane Fellaini and Matteo Guendouzi being targeted.

But Cucurella says he has absolutely no plans to cut his hair, nor does he hold a grudge against Romero.

‘No, no. This is my style,’ the 24-year-old added.

‘No, for me it is no problem. Before the game I spoke with him [Romero] and it is a fight on the pitch.

‘I have no problem with him, and it is only an action in the game. Maybe it was an important action, as it maybe changed the final result.’
