Marc Cucurella's class oozing headband
Marc Cucurella is at the top of the world seeing that the footballing summer transfer window had him standing on his tippy-toes, attracting interest from one of the very best clubs in the world in Chelsea & Manchester City. Why would he not, considering how remarkably elite the Spanish fullback occurs to be, running past against players with his pace and dipping in some impressive crosses for his forwards. At last, after having an exciting season with Brighton Hove & Albion the stage for him was set to attract the top clubs around the world and that is how he secured his 60M move to Chelsea.
Cucurella is a talented player who not only is silky on the eye but the football too as his ultimate ball control enabled him to carry the ball progressively 6.01 times per football game last season for Brighton.
Born in the Alella region of Spain, he started off playing 5-a-side football at first until the Espanyol youth team recruited a natural youngster with ability. Seeing that he was born in Catalonia, like every other child out there even his dream was to play for Football Club Barcelona and his dream drew paint in 2012. Finally, in the year 2016, he started off a game for the reserves team which was one of the first steps to glory. He made his professional debut for the club in September 2017. The Spanish left-back then moved to Eibar on a loan that soon became a permanent transfer and started shining with the prospect of game time but after 16 days he once again changed clubs, transferring to Getafe and that is where things changed.
Cucurella started flourishing at the Spanish club playing 37 games in the 2020/2021 La Liga season, scoring 3 goals and assisting twice which are unique numbers for a fullback. His talent and energy were soon recognized by Brighton’s amazing scouting system and finally moved to the premier league where after impressing top clubs he, at last, moved to Chelsea.
Aside from his swagger style of play he also oozes class with his long hair and black headband that keeps his long & stylistic hair intact, enabling him to play and showcase his abilities. A funny incident occurred in the second game of Chelsea’s season where Tottenham defender Cristian Romero pulled a hand full of Marc Cucurella’s hair moments before Tottenham equalized, creating loads of controversy as to whether it should have been a foul or not.
When asked if his hair is okay, Cucurella insisted they are good and he has no plans to get a haircut. When a haircut is out of the charts, the headband comes to the rescue maintaining the heavy weight of Cucurella throughout the course of 90 minutes!
He has started the season well for Chelsea, obtaining two assists to his name in the Champions League already, as we expect more from the flying Spanish man. We wish him the best of luck at his new club!
