Legendary Colombian footballer Carlos Valderrama is going into politics

Famed for his blonde afro, Carlos Valderrama is one of the most well known South American footballers of all time.

Known as ‘El Pibe’ (The Kid), 52 year old Valderrama appears to be ready to try his hand at politics.

The Colombian former star will seek a seat in the 2014 elections after announcing his involvement in the party curiously named ‘U’.

Valderrama will surely light up the world of politics like he lit up the world of football.
