Chelseamidfielder Jorginho has dyed his hair and fans think he’s doing it as a way of trollingPhil Fodenand England.
The 29-year-old was one of the best players at Euro 2020, where Italy went all the way and beat England on penalties at Wembley to claim a second European Championship triumph.
Jorginho’s Euro 2020 win with the Azzurri followed up him lifting the Champions League with Chelsea and he’s decided to celebrate his recent achievements by changing his style.

And plenty of fans reckon he’s gone for that particular colour in response to Foden’s cut – andhis subsequent statement that the whole of Gareth Southgate’s squad would go blondeif the Three Lions won the Euros.

Foden dying his hair blonde just before the Euros as a tribute of sorts to England legend Paul Gascoigne proved to be a huge talking point.
It prompted many fans to copy the Manchester City wonderkid and now Jorginho has followed suit – though we do wonder what the likes of Mason Mount, Reece James and Ben Chilwell make of his decision.
To the surprise of many, spot-kick specialist Jorginho saw his penalty saved in the shoot-out by Jordan Pickford – but Italy still went on to win when Bukayo Saka was denied by Gianluigi Donnarumma from 12 yards.
Jorginho’s classy midfield performances have not gone under the radar andhe has been touted as a contender for the coveted Ballon d’Oraward.
“We live for dreams,” Jorginho told SportTV in response to talk of him winning France Football’s prize.
“But I’ll be honest enough: it depends on the criteria that leads to assigning it.
“If we talk about talent, I’m aware I’m not the best in the world. If you choose based on titles, well, no-one has won more than me this season.”
