Romanian club come up with novel way of keeping players warm during game

Romanian side Sepsi had to use socks for sleeves to avoid the cold when they faced Steaua Bucharest

We’ll bet you £10 that the first thing anyone talked to you about today was the weather.

It’s cold. In fact it’s the type of weather only Scott Brown enjoys.

Over in Romania it’s actually worse, with current conditions hovering around the -8° mark.

So spare a thought for Romanian side Sepsi, who had to travel to the capital to play Steaua Bucharest yesterday.

Clearly the kit man didn’t do his job properly because Sepsi’s players were left looking outside the box for ways to stay warm.

Fair play to the bright spark who thought to wear socks for sleeves.

Why didn’t they just wear long sleeves? Your guess is as good as ours.

It ended up being a bit of a wasted trip, with Steaua scoring twice in the second-half to record a comfortable 2-0 win.

The only player who looked comfortable in his surroundings was Nick Ross.

Scottish midfielder Ross moved to Sepsi from Dundee earlier this month.

Having been born in Inverness we’re sure he’s more than used to the nippy conditions.

Perfect t-shirt weather.
