A teenager was placed in isolation by his school because he has a haircut inspired by top footballers.
Thirteen-year-old Lewis Kenny copied Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale with his on-trend hairdo.
But the year nine pupil who actually supports Liverpool was taken out of classes for the day because the style is considered ‘extreme’ by St Ambrose Barlow High School in Wardley, Salford.
The boys dad Liam Kenny told the Manchester Evening News: “What I want is an acknowledgement that they are wrong. They have said that he has an extreme haircut and he must restyle his hair to how the school wants it.
Headteacher Marie Garside said: “Parents and pupils are made aware of our high expectations and aspirations before they choose the school. We are very clear about what we accept and don’t accept and we make it explicit about what we feel are appropriate standards at our parent information evenings.”
