Wayne Rooney has more hair in FIFA 12

To steer him towards the brunette.

Wayne Rooney's real-life hair implants mean that EA Sports, in the name of authenticity, will give the Manchester United striker more hair in FIFA 12.

EA Sports confirmed this to Eurogamer this morning and sent over a screenshot (below) to illustrate the change.

Rooney told fans via Twitter about his hair implants in June.

He allegedly forked out £30,000 to have hair follicles implanted into his scalp that will, over the course of a few months, grow naturally.

Rooney will share the cover of FIFA 12 with Arsenal wonderkid Jack Wilshere.

Pity his manager isn't Hairy Redknapp.
