Why I dyed my hair - Messi explains

5-time Ballon D’or winner Lionel Messi ditched his black hair for a blonde look at the start of the 2016/17 campaign. The Argentine forward when asked for the reason behind his new hairstyle said, referring to his team’s Copa American loss to Chile:

“I made a change to start from zero. A lot had gone on, things had happened , and I said to myself, ‘I have to break this and start again,’

“It was how I felt in that moment. Everything came crashing down. I felt like that [final] was the one, given how the team was and how we’d played in the competition. It was a huge disappointment.”
