Why do footballers cover their mouth when talking to each other?
I was watching a live game over the weekend and noticed that the players talking to each other on the pitch covered their mouth. Why do they do this?
I used to think it was because they never wanted people who could lip read know what they are saying to one another. I then remember reading somewhere they do it as the noise is so loud in the stadium and when they talk like that they can hear each other better. So not entirely sure what the main reason is.
