Chelsea’s Jorginho trolls England players with new hairstyle
Italy conquer England at Euro 2020
Images have surfaced this morning showing demonstrating that Jorginho has had a change of hairstyle following his Euro 2020 success with Italy.
The Azzurri defeated England on penalties in the final at Wembley, leading to several players taking shots at England’s song “it’s coming home”.

Chelsea and Italy midfielder Jorginho, however, has taken a different route of taking a thinly veiled dig at the English, by changing his hair.
Ahead of the tournament, Phil Foden revealed his new platinum blonde hairstyle, thought to be styled as Paul Gasgoine’s was in 1996.
🗣️ “I told the team that if we win it they have to get the same haircut as me and they all agreed.”

In an interview ahead of the tournament, he revealed that were England to win the Euros, the whole squad had agreed to get the same haircut, something which was looking possible after the Three Lions’ run to the final.
However, while this never transpired, Jorginho has decided to dye his hair to match Foden’s, trolling the England players in the process.

The haircut was revealed in an exclusive interview with TNT Sport’s Fred Caldeira, which will be released later today.

With Jorginho in a Chelsea squad with several England players, including Mason Mount and Reece James, it remains to be seen how this stunt will go down in west London. More broadly too, he may cop some added stick from opposition fans this season.
