Ozil goes blonde

With the start of the new season already just a matter of weeks away, Mesut Ozil has plumped for a fresh new look.

Indeed, the German forward has been seen sporting an eye-catching silvery blonde coif out in Los Angeles, where Arsenal are currently preparing to take part in the 2019 International Champions Cup.

Ayyy, @MesutOzil1088 with the fresh trim! 😎

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was among many suggesting that Ozil may have dyed his hair in tribute to Megan Rapinoe, though a lot of other lookalikes being suggested weren’t quite as complimentary.

Ozil later explained that he has had to dye his hair as the result of a crossbar challenge wager he lost against Alexandre Lacazette, and that both Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac have also followed suit.
