Pep Guardiola looks totally different in "hypnotising" old footage of the Manchester City manager with hair.
The Spaniard has become instantly recognisable during his coaching career with his bald look and greying beard following him across spells in charge of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and City. Fans have become so accustomed to seeing Guardiola rocking his iconic look that old footage of him with hair has left them shocked.
A viral clip of the City boss with a slicked black hair and a goatee walking a catwalk has left fans speechless, with Guardiola seen modelling several different outfits as he is snapped by photographers.

One fan reacted by tweeting: "He’s hypnotising." Meanwhile, another bewildered supporter added: "Oh he ain’t playing fair."
A third compared him to a current Arsenal star as they wrote: "Is it me or does he kinda look like Martinelli." One more commented: "I don’t know why it’s so surprising to see him with hair like what do you mean he wasn’t bald his entire life."
Who will succeed Pep Guardiola as Manchester City manager? Let us know in the comments section below.
Guardiola sported a similar look for much of his playing career before adopting his now well-known appearance after swapping the pitch for the dugout.
His trophy-laden managerial career could soon have more silverware added to it, with City still in the hunt for three trophies this season.
In the Premier League, Guardiola's side are currently second with 11 matches remaining, trailing league leaders Arsenal by eight points although City do have a game in hand.
Meanwhile, City remain in both the FA Cup and the Champions League, with clashes against Sheffield United and Bayern Munich, respectively, coming up next month.
Regardless of how many trophies City lift this season, though, Guardiola does not appear to be going anywhere anytime soon after extending his contract through to the summer of 2025 back in November.
That has not stopped him from hinting at he who could succeed him in the hot seat at the Etihad Stadium, however, after betting journalists that Vincent Kompany will one day manage the club.
Speaking after the recent FA Cup victory over Burnley, Guardiola told reporters: "One day, he (Vincent Kompany) will be sitting here (as a manager), talking about representing Manchester City. It’s going to happen. I’ll bet you whatever you want. I will win the bet."
