Aaron Ramsey has spoken about his ridiculous new bleach blonde hair, revealing that there was no reason whatsoever for the dramatic change (via WalesOnline). The Welshman says he merely fancied a change, and so decided to do his best impression of Samir Nasri.

Ramsey shocked everyone when he debuted his blinding new hair, with many confused as to why he’d actually done it. The Arsenal star insists it wasn’t to stand out or make any kind of statement though, and it was something he’d been considering for a while.
The midfielder claims that if he does stand out at the Euros he wants it to be for the right reasons rather than his hair; like performing well on the pitch with Wales and giving a good account of himself.
“There’s no significance to it, I just fancied a change,” he said.
“I’d been contemplating it for a while and just thought: ‘Yeah why not?!
“I have had a bit of stick but I don’t look at any social media things. It might make me stand out on the pitch but I already want to make an impression on the field. That is my main target to help Wales get out of the group stages and then see where we go from there.”
Wales are in a group with England, Russia, and Slovakia this summer, which is not exactly an easy group. While England will most definitely be expected to top the group, Wales will certainly be hoping to clinch second. Chris Coleman’s side showed fantastic form during qualification, and neither Russia nor Slovakia have done anything to suggest that they are shoe-ins for second place.

It will be interesting to see how far Wales go this tournament, and with players like Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale in the side they’ve always got a chance of progression.
