FANS have been left in hysterics at Peter Schmeichel’s reaction to Chelsea ace Mateo Kovacic running off the pitch in only his PANTS.
The Croatia star, 28, was a first half substitute in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United.
Jorginho thought he’d won the game from the penalty spot, but his opener was cancelled out by an added-time equaliser by Red Devils summer signing Casemiro.
But at full-time, Kovacic had stripped down to just his pants, socks and boots.
The midfielder confidently ran back across the pitch and into the tunnel, where he passed Man Utd legend Schmeichel.
The iconic shot-stopper looked Kovacic up and down, before taking a second glance and laughing.
And Schmeichel’s reaction has caused quite the stir on social media.
One fan said on Twitter: “Schmeichel was feeling Kova boy.”
Another said: “Peter Schmeichel looked very happy to see him.”
The draw keeps Chelsea above United in the Premier League table.
