The long hair of a former soccer player with Iranian Football Club Perspolis has caused trouble for him. Shpejtim Arifi has received an SMS from the Iranian police, warning him to observe Islamic hijab.

The SMS also said Arifi would be fined if he fails to observe the hijab code.

It seems that the traffic police cams in Tehran where Arifi is living mistook him for a woman because of his long hair.

The former footballer is now the manager of the junior team of the Perspolis FC.
