A former Chelsea star was seen drinking a beer on the bench at Celta Vigo the La Liga side.

Thirsty Enrique de Lucas, 35, was caught having a lager — BEFORE coming on as a sub in Celta’s 4-1 loss to Sevilla on last Monday.

The midfielder has spent just a year at Stamford Bridge before moving out in 2002.

But the Celta ace has had a glowing career since then!

De Lucas is not the first football player to sip-up during a match.

Wayne Rooney was caught flirting with alcohol in the director’s box during Manchester United’s highly anticipated clash with Chelsea in 2010.

And last but not the least, colorful Newcastle owner Mike Ashley famously took a pint (i.e. glass) of beer  in the away end at Arsenal — later telling the police he thought it was alcohol free!
