FORMER Premier League star Moritz Bauer presented a fan with his shirt after she stripped down to her underwear in the stands.
The supporter called Azalea held up a sign that read: “Bauer, give me your t-shirt, it’s cold.”
Russian fan Azalea stripped down to her underwear in an attempt to get a shirt from Moritz Bauer
And the stunt worked as the former Celtic and Stoke player presented her with one at training on Tuesday
Former Stoke and Celtic right-back Bauer, 29, played 90 minutes in Ufa’s 1-1 draw with Lokomotov Moscow on Friday 6 August.
Azalea was originally wearing shorts and a tank top in the stadium.
But as soon as the final whistle went, she stripped down to her purple underwear and held her sign aloft.
Swiss star Bauer didn’t hand the shirt straight over to bold Azalea at the BetBoom Arena.
But having been impressed by her attempt, she was invited to the team’s training ground on Tuesday morning and he presented her a shirt in front of the whole team.
Fans online were split after the story went viral.
Makc tweeted: “That act is rather heroic.”
But Konstantin simply said: “What a fool.”
Bauer’s Ufa went 1-0 up through Oleg Ivanov’s penalty on the stroke of half-time.
Lokomotiv were down to 10 by then after Dmitri Barinov’s red card just two minutes earlier.
But they did not let the one-man defecit show as they grabbed an equaliser through Vitali Lisakovich with 73 minutes on the clock.
They beat Nizhny Novgorod 2-1 last time out and are 11th in the Russian Premier League after four games.
