Riyad Mahrez has dyed his hair blond and people have questions
“He’s gone for a Romania at France 98 look here.”
Riyad Mahrez made sure all eyes were on him at Leicester v Burnley as he sported a brand new hairdo.
The Algerian winger showed off his blond locks at King Power Stadium, and although he created the chance for Demarai Gray to score and secure a 1-0 victory for the Foxes, all fans could talk about was his bleached mane.
