Brazilian forward Marquinhos
has been scolded by his Japanese club, Kashima Antlers, for taking his shorts off and putting them on properly
after noticing he had them on backward shortly before kickoff of a game against Kawasaki Frontale. The brief disrobing in full view of the crowd upset club president Kazumi Ohigashi
"You've got to confirm these things before the match," Ohigashi said. "I'd like him to be more organized."
Kashima, for which Marquinhos has scored six goals in 17
J-League games, won, 1-0.
