Javi Martinez: If Athletic Bilbao win a trophy this season I will dye my hair pink

Athletic Bilbao's Javi Martinez has stated that he will dye his hair pink should his side lift a trophy this term.

The San Mames outfit are preparing for a Europa League semi-final tie with Sporting Lisbon, and also face Barcelona in the showpiece of the Copa del Rey in May.

With Marcelo Bielsa's men impressing onlookers in Spain and on the continent, their star midfielder has stated that he will take drastic measures to celebrate any potential success.

"If we win a title this season, I will colour my hair pink all year round," the Spain international joked to AS.

Meanwhile, attacking midfielder Iker Muniain has an eye infection and will most likely sit out Bilbao's Primera Division match with Mallorca on Sunday.

It is rumoured that the talented playmaker has uveitis in his eye and will be rested for the game at the weekend.
