Algerian coach Djamel Belmadi has instructed Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez and WestHam United forward Said Benrahma to do away with their blonde hair, before reporting to camp according to reports by Goal.com Africa.
The Fennec Foxes will kick start their world cup qualifying campaign today against Djibouti at the Stade Mustapha Tchaker.
The two-star players who ply their trade in England have been asked to change their hair color by their head coach and will feature for the national team in their dark natural hair.
Belmadi who led the North African country to their first-ever AFCON trophy two years ago is known for his high level of discipline among his squad.
Ahead of their 2019 AFCON triumph, Brest midfielder Haris Belkebla was dropped from the Algerian camp follows video footage of Belkebla appearing on social media exposing his backside on a live stream of an online game.
The Brest midfielder issued an emotional apology, saying he was “broken-hearted”. But that couldn’t earn him a recall into the side.
