Here's what Aaron Ramsey has to say about his controversial new blond hairdo


If you saw those pictures of Aaron Ramsey's new hair and wondered why on earth he did it, we have the answer.

Well, sort of.

The Arsenal and Wales midfielder, who's gone blond for Euro 2016, said: "There's no significance to it - I just fancied a change.

"I have been contemplating it for a while and just thought, 'Yeah, why not?'"

So there's your answer: he just felt like a change.

As you'd expect, the reaction on Twitter was pretty biting.

But what about in the Wales camp?

Ramsey said: "To be fair, it was a bit of a shock to some of them.

"But a lot of them are saying they are having it now."

Does that mean his team-mates are going to go full on Romania circa World Cup 1998?

Can't see Gareth Bale getting involved somehow.
