It was back to school day for the Blues, Monday. The vice-world champions indeed found themselves in Clairefontaine three months after the final lost against Argentina during the World Cup. The French team has indeed an appointment with the Netherlands, Friday, then in Ireland, Tuesday, to launch their qualifying campaign for Euro 2024. This first day therefore gave rise to a reunion.
And if the arrival of Kylian Mbappé, long coat on the shoulders and dark glasses on the nose, was very noticed, Antoine Griezmann was not left out. Consequence of his pink hair, which he has been wearing for more than two months. The Atletico Madrid striker has the right to bewildered looks or a few remarks, especially from Kylian Mbappé or Didier Deschamps. “I saw you from afar”thus launched the tricolor coach, eyes riveted on his haircut.

Randal Kolo Muani was just as taken aback, the Eintracht Frankfurt striker remaining a few seconds prohibited in front of the skull of the former Barcelonan. Customary of capillary eccentricities, the native of Mâcon went pink at the very beginning of the year. And according to him, his daughters are not there for nothing. “It was played between blue and pink. I have three daughters at home (his wife Erika and their two daughters, Alba and Mia, editor’s note) and we are only two boys (his son Amaro and him, editor’s note), we voted and the pink won »he explained to Marca after his visit to the hairdresser.
But this dye is a good sign for the Blues and Atletico Madrid. “With my haircuts, that’s how you can see if I’m happy or not. Since childhood, it has always been like this, the look, the colors…”he confided.
