Ozil reveals Alexandre Lacazette is the reason behind his new dramatic hairstyle
Mesut Ozil has revealed that Alexandre Lacazette is the reason behind his new hairstyle.
The former German international has caused a stir on social media with his new blond hairstyle and has 'accused' Lacazette for this look.
According to the playmaker, who spoke to Chris Wheatley of D2S Media, he lost a bet to the Frenchman in the Arsenal training ground.
"I lost a bet - or we lost a bet against Laca (Alexandre Lacazette). "(It was a) crossing challenge. You know where you have to hit the crossbar? Me, Sead (Kolasinac) and Shkodran Mustafi.
"So we lost all together - that's life!"
Teammate Aubameyang joked that the German looks like USA national women's team star Megan Rapinoe, who starred in the recently-concluded Women World Cup.
Ozil's future at the club is still unclear, having fallen out of favour with manager Unai Emery. He Arsenal's highest earner and the wages might prove a stumbling block for any deal.
