If you thought legendary Egyptian footballer Mohamed Salah wouldn't catch you off guard, well, this happens to prove you wrong. 

On Sunday, the footballer shared a selfie on Instagram, in which his beard has been completely shaven off. He went from having a stellar beard to a spotless clean shave ... so it's only natural that many jaws were dropped.

To each their own, but Salah made a huge mistake and it seems as though the majority of his fans agree. 

Mo Salah, where are you?

"You look like an emoji"

Demands surfaced: "Come back to school"

"Dear Liverpool, tell Salah to grow his beard back ASAP"

Nicknames, too: "Mobeardless Salah"

Does the new look remind you of someone?

Maybe like the character from Wreck it Ralph?

"Worst decision ever"

Stating facts: "He's Egyptian, the beard will be back tomorrow"

Let's take a moment to remember the good old days

When his selfies were gold

And his facial hair was just perfect

We just hope Salah brings back the beard SOON!
