This Mainz footballer spraying drink down his shorts has us pretty confused

By Max McLean

Very interesting!

Fluids are an important part of football, with players regularly grabbing a bottle from the sidelines to keep hydrated – we’re not sure what Mainz’s Giulio Donati was doing with his drink however.

The defender was getting ready to come on in a Bundesliga fixture against Ingolstadt, and while going through some last-minute instructions, picked up a water bottle.

This is something we haven’t seen before, however.

The 27-year-old sprays his drink into his shorts while talking with a member of the Mainz staff – is there a chance that was the instruction?

Donati came on halfway through the game with his side 1-0 down, but was unable to help get his side back into the game, with Ingolstadt winning 2-1.

Perhaps the old wet crotch trick will work better in the next fixture.
