Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic left little to the imagination as he stripped down to his shorts after Saturday night’s full-time whistle.
The Blues had just held Manchester United 1-1, Casemiro denying them the three points with an injury-time header.
And viewers were then somewhat shocked to see Kovacic running across the pitch in just his underwear before making his way through the tunnel.

Kovacic raised eyebrows as he presented both his shirts and shorts to fans in the crowd
He had thrown both his shirt and shorts fans into the crowd as he then joined his teammates who unsurprisingly opted to salute their matchwear after the game – to salute the rest of the fans.

Luckily for the midfielder, it was a balmy autumn evening in west London when he walked down the tunnel, also with a water bottle, while his team-mates appeared to have long since left the pitch.

Casemiro’s injury-time header earned Manchester United a point in their 1-1 draw with Chelsea.
The Brazilian midfielder equalized by the smallest margin, with goal-line technology justifiably rewarding his efforts at Stamford Bridge.
Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga scraped the ball against a post before the rebound crossed the line.
Jorginho’s late penalty seemed to have given Chelsea all three points, only Casemiro emerged and leveled.
The midfielder helped maintain Cheslea’s unbeaten run under Graham Potter with a 1-1 draw
United extended their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions, while Chelsea are yet to lose under new boss Graham Potter.
Former Brighton manager Potter’s unbeaten run as Chelsea manager has now extended to eight games.
Honors even in a cut-and-thrust encounter meant Chelsea remained fourth and United fifth in the Premier League table.
