San Lorenzo Captain Booked Before Kick-Off Against Boca Juniors For Bringing Dog Onto The Pitch (Video)

By Chris Wright

San Lorenzo captain Pablo Alvarado picked up what must surely be the earliest yellow card ever to be shown on Sunday afternoon when he was booked by the referee several minutes before kick-off against Boca Juniors for time-wasting.

Not just any old common-or-garden time-wasting though, oh no, but time-wasting as a result of choosing to walk his dog out onto the pitch just as the two teams were gearing up to get things under way.

Apparently, Alvarado felt that San Lorenzo needed a club mascot and that his dog was the perfect candidate. The referee, however, disagreed and showed the 27-year-old skipper his first and thankfully only yellow card of the afternoon as San Lorenzo went on to win the game 1-0.
