Leicester City manager Claude Puel says he has no problem with Riyad Mahrez’s new hairstyle.

The Algerian attacker was an eye-catching figure in the Foxes’ 1-0 win over Burnley in the Premier League this past weekend - and not just for his silky skills.

Mahrez sported a bright blonde hair-do, which he must have had done in between Leicester’s midweek win over Tottenham (in which the Algerian scored a sublime goal) and their weekend match.

The new hairstyle didn’t affect Mahrez’s performance, as he put in a man-of-the-match showing in the 1-0 victory which the Foxes to within eight points of the top five.

City boss Claude Puel was asked about his new look after the Burnley game and said: “His hair is not a problem for me, it is just for him.

“If he shines even more like that then so be it."
