(Scroll down for video) Football fans were disgusted by the alleged actions of their hero.
A video that was uploaded to YouTube, showed Arsenal Football Club defender Per Mertesacker of Germany, picking his nose before wiping it into a young boy’s hair.
The boy, who is the team’s mascot, was minding his own business when Mertesacker walked up to him and stroked his hair.
The boy did not see what Mertesacker, 31, had done and he did not suspect that snot was placed in his hair.
He learned of the footballer’s actions after seeing the video footage that was taken during Arsenal’s recent home game against Man City.
While it is clear that Mertesacker picked his nose before stroking the young boy’s hair, many people who watched the video, have speculated whether or not Mertesacker actually had a piece of snot in his hand.
