Mateo Kovacic breaks silence after ‘streaking’ across Stamford Bridge after Chelsea vs Man Utd
Mateo Kovacic shocked fans across the world as he bizarrely stripped down to just his underwear and socks following Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United
Mateo Kovacic has broken his silence after ‘streaking’ across the pitch at Stamford Bridge following Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United. After the Blues were denied a sixth win in seven games under new boss Graham Potter, the midfielder was spotted by Sky Sports running towards the tunnel in only his underwear and socks.
The 28-year-old had handed a Chelsea supporter his matchday kit. In the cold conditions, he obviously had no intention of hanging around any longer without much to cover himself up.
Kovacic’s actions left thousands of fans bemused by his decision and a clip of such went viral on social media. But, now, the Croatia international has spoken out for the first time since the incident.
Taking to Instagram, he posted a cartooned drawing of himself in his underwear. Apologising to his wife, Izabel, he captioned the image: “Sorry @izakova!”
