Jorginho and Thiago Silva channel their inner Phil Foden as the Chelsea duo bleach their hair ahead of the new season… but unimpressed team-mate Hakim Ziyech calls their new style ‘terrible’!
- Chelsea’s stars were not impressed with Jorghino and Thiago Silva’s new hair-do
- The Blues will play Spanish side Villarreal in the Super Cup on Wednesday
- Chelsea will kick-off their league campaign against Crystal Palace on August 11
Chelsea stars Thiago Silva and Jorginho have stunned fans and team mates by showing off their new blonde locks as they returned to the club for pre-season training.
The pair enjoyed a belated break after Silva played for Brazil in the Copa America narrowly losing to old foes Argentina in the final, whilst Jorginho won the Euros with Italy.
Their new hairstyles were the subject of much ridicule and criticism amongst Chelsea players with Hakim Ziyech labelling them ‘terrible’.

It remains to be seen if Chelsea’s other stars are inspired to follow suit.
England midfielder Phil Foden also dyed his hair blonde before this summer’s Euros as an homage to Paul Gascoigne who infamously did it before Euro 96.
‘To be honest, it was my own thing and then I saw people turn it into something else and I jumped on it like everyone else would.’ Foden told talkSPORT in June.

‘I decided to change it up and called the barber and I’ve liked it ever since.’
Foden later revealed that the entire England squad would’ve dyed their hair blonde as well had they gone on to win the tournament.
Cheslea will play Villarreal in the Super Cup on August 11 and will host Crystal Palace the following Saturday in their opening Premier League game.
