Messi Explains Why He Went Blonde

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi made headlines when he uncharacteristically changed his hair colour, and the Argentine has finally explained why he went blonde. Can you guess the reason?

Blonde seems to be the trend nowadays among footballers, with the likes of Neymar, Aaron Ramsey and Marouane Fellaini all dying their hair during the off season.

Fans were surprised when Messi went blonde, as the superstar is not usually the flashy type. 

The 29-year-old recently explained why he decided to change his hair colour, admitting he wanted a clean start – which could’ve perhaps been inspired after Argentina’s 2016 Copa America loss.

"One particularly tough day I dyed my hair, I had to start again from scratch. I said to myself: 'I have to make a clean break and start over," revealed Messi in an interview with famous comedian Mingo on Telefe's 'Polemica en el bar'. 

Do you think blonde hair suites Messi?
