Yellow Card of the Week: Bastian Schweinsteiger

Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse more stories

A number of players seem to have been caught with their pants down this week—quite literally. Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa had his shorts pulled down by an Osasuna player on Tuesday, while exactly the same thing happened to Aston Villa's Nicklas Helenius when Jan Vertonghen yanked down his drawers.

This week's Yellow Card, however, goes to a man who accidentally exposed himself to German Chancellor Angela Merkel: Bastian Schweinsteiger.

According to Bild (link in German), the German midfielder was apparently in the buff when Merkel congratulated Die Mannschaft in the dressing room after a Euro 2012 victory. It may have been a simple case of bad timing, but this kind of high-profile indecent exposure definitely deserves a booking.
