Ex-Chelsea player Enrique De Lucas has caused a bit of a stir after TV footage showed him enjoying a beer on the substitutes bench.
De Lucas enjoyed his beverage ahead Celta Vigo’s 4-1 defeat to Sevilla last weekend, a match in which he came on as a 75th minute sub.
But it his pre-match routine that will live longest in the memory. He sat on the bench openly nursing a small cerveza.
The fact that he was necking booze in front of a TV audience rather than locked in a toilet somewhere has prompted suggestions that it may have been a non-alcoholic beer being deployed as an energy drink.
Thanks to Rick Hoedt for the tip.
