Joachim Low caught smelling own armpits during Slovakia game

Joachim Low has been caught on camera, once again, doing something rather disgusting.

The Germany manager previously courted some controversy after TV cameras picked him up appearing to put his hands down his trousers and sniff his fingers during Die Mannschafts’ 2-0 victory over Ukraine in Lille.

Low went on to apologise for his actions in the days that followed, claiming that he was doing it “subconsciously” with little regard for television viewers at home.

“It was adrenaline and concentration. I will try to behave differently in the future,” he told The Mirror.

Little over a week on from that apology, however, and it would appear that the old adage about a leopard never changing its spots rings true when it comes to Low’s sniffing antics.

Caught on camera yet again in France, while plenty of tacticians were purring over Low’s Germany team during an imperious 3-0 victory over Slovakia one eagle-eyed journalist spotted something altogether different.

What made the whole situation all the more bizarre was the fact that a certain Richard Keys caught him out.

Tweeting out a video featuring Low, the German coach was captured appearing to put his hand inside his armpit before smelling the sweaty goodness that must have been left on his fingers.

While perhaps not as gross-out disgusting as his trouser-based antics against Ukraine, the clip adds further weight to the belief that, though Low is an excellent international manager and World Cup winner to boot, he is quite a strange bloke.

Something tells us this will not be the last time we talk about this either.

Roy Hodgson, you may want to be careful the next time you shake hands with Low.
