This former Stamford Bridge favourite used to run the show from midfield each week.
Making an instant impact in London, he spent five-and-a-half years with Chelsea.
And he also won an impressive 52 caps for his country.
Guessed who it is yet?
Yes, it is Blues icon and former Brazilian midfield ace Ramires.
He spent his time at Chelsea with a smooth, shaved head – as well as no facial hair.
But Ramires revealed a new look ahead of the club’s FA Cup final defeat to Liverpool on Saturday.
Sending a message of good luck to Chelsea, Ramires declared: “Hi guys, Ramires here.

“Just wanted to wish you best of luck before the FA Cup final.
“Let’s have a repeat of our final win 10 years ago against Liverpool. Good luck guys.”
Chelsea fans went wild for Ramires’ sharp new style, with one saying: “How much your face has changed. First I did not know you!”
Another noted: “Looking very handsome my bro.”
One cried: “Your face changed a lot, couldn’t figure it out at first. You look great.”
Another added: “Ramires’ glow up is unbelievable.”
Ramires joined Chelsea from Benfica in 2010 for £18million, having just won a Portuguese league and cup double.
And he went on to score 34 goals in 251 games as a dynamic box-to-box midfielder.
Ramires won a Premier League title, FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League during his Stamford Bridge spell.
But he was shown the door in January 2016 when he joined the Chinese Super League revolution with Jiangsu Suning for £25m.
Ramires played 71 times for the Far East side before returning to Brazil with Palmeiras.
Making 43 appearances, he won the 2020 Treble before departing soon after.
Ramires has been without a club ever since, although he has not officially retired.
And in 2018 the star admitted he’d love to play again for Chelsea one last time.
Ramires said: “I’ll always have special affection for them and I want to play for them again before finishing my career.
“I know the doors of Stamford Bridge will always be open to me and that wearing their jersey again would be spectacular.”
