Algeria Manager Has Made Riyad Mahrez And Said Benrahma Get Rid Of Blonde Hair

Riyad Mahrez and Said Benrahma have both reverted back to their natural hair colour at the request of their national team manager, reports say.

The Algerian pair both jumped on the bleach blonde bandwagon over the summer and started the Premier League season with their hairstyles looking a little like Phil Foden's for Euro 2020.

But upon returning to international duty, Mahrez and Benrahma have gone back to black - as seen in various images in training.

But it seems as though it wasn't exactly their call. Manager Djamel Belmadi is quite the disciplinarian and does not approve of the blonde tints.

And so Mahrez and Benrahma have had to switch things up from the colour they were both sporting at Manchester City and West Ham respectively of late.

Belmadi, who played for Paris Saint-Germain, Marseille and Manchester City in his playing career, is said to want his players to "sport a respectable style without frills" and "a look that reflects the traditions and customs of Algerian society" - as per Dzair Daily.

It's not the first time he's come down hard on one of his players for going blonde. In 2018, Ilias Hassani turned up to the training ground with blonde locks and Belmadi ordered him to get it cut out.

The following day, his hair was once again black for the next training session.
