Former Chelsea striker Mateja Kezman has updated his look and is completely unrecognisable from his playing days with a shaggy beard and sleeve length tattoos.

And it seems as if his Santa Claus appearance is not just for Christmas with Kezman opting to bring the festive cheer all year round with his altered appearance.

The Serbian international was part of Chelsea's record-breaking 2004/05 side as they won their maiden Premier League title under new manager Jose Mourinho.

In his one season at Stamford Bridge, he netted seven goals in 41 appearances as the Blues recorded a famous double – also triumphing in the League Cup.

Chelsea recorded a 3-2 victory over title rivals Liverpool in the February final, with Kezman scoring their third goal at a sell-out Millennium Stadium.

But it seems his appearance from that cup final day has been dramatically altered with the 42-year-old taking to social media to post his updated look on Instagram and Twitter.

Kezman can be seen donning a two-tone shaggy beard with huge white sideburns and a black goatee.

His scrawly hair appears to be wearing thin on the top which might be why he is pictured wearing a hat in one of the photos.

It's a major change from his playing days when the Serbian opted for a bit of stubble on his chin or was seen clean-shaven.

But retirement has seen Kezman opt for a different style and it wouldn't be too much of a surprise to see him dressed up in a certain red costume surrounded by nine reindeer.


Last seen playing in China, Kezman had spells at Atletico Madrid, Fenerbache and PSG before hanging up his boots in 2012.

He is now employed as a football agent with his clients including Lazio star Sergei Milinkovic-Savic.
