A Liverpool fan is planning to cut his hair for the first time in 17 years after the club secured their long-awaited Premier League title.

Uke Krasniqi, a Reds supporter from Kosovo who now lives in Vancouver, promised in 2003 he wouldn't get a haircut until the team finally banished their demons and won the Premier League.

He said he had been urged many times to get a trim but "remained committed to my promise".

Back in 2014, Krasniqi told The Metro: "Since 2003 I started growing my hair spontaneously. So far Liverpool have won all the titles but not the league." The educational assistant said his wife Diana will cut his hair when Liverpool eventually receive the trophy.

"Whenever I see Jordan Henderson lifting that trophy I will be cutting my hair," he told the Press Association.

The 37-year-old has supported the Reds since childhood thanks to his father, who watched the club in the days of domestic dominance with Kenny Dalglish and Graeme Souness.

Krasniqi feared this season could be scrapped due to the coronavirus pandemic, leaving him another year without being able to shear his locks.

"I've been keeping my hair...I've been waiting for this moment."

"I said it: as long as it takes. I had a few disappointing moments but it seems that I'm finally there, it's going to happen."
