Man Utd Premier League winner looks unrecognisable 15 years later as he rides a bike outside his modest home | The Sun

The footballer ditched his gelled hair and shaved face for a slick-looking beard for his ride around on two wheels.



He was snapped taking a spin outside a modest house.

Eagles joined Man Utd aged just 14 in 2000, and went on to play six times for the Red Devils.

"It’s the worst experience ever because you don’t know what he’s going to do.

"I can remember standing outside of his office, sweating, going red.

"He used to have a folder where he used to keep his notes. It was a hard-back.
