Former Leeds United flop Tomas Brolin may once have been voted the second-worst player in the history of the Premier League, but he's in a league of his own when it comes to naked snow angels.

The 52-year-old turned heads on Instagram in 2015 by posting a peculiar picture of himself making the classic yuletide pose – without any clothes on.

Nevertheless, Brolin, who joined Leeds in 1995 for £4.5million, called it a 'regular Monday' in the caption and appeared to be loving life as he chilled with a smile for the camera.

Thankfully for his followers, the former Sweden international at least had the decency to cover up his nether regions with a couple of big old snowballs – phew.

While it must have been chilly for Brolin in the snow, he actually enjoyed a warm relationship with Leeds fans during his time at Elland Road, despite his indifferent form.

Under Howard Wilkinson and following Brolin's eagerly-anticipated arrival, the Whites were expected to mount a real title challenge.

But it never materialised as the midfielder fell out with Wilkinson and struggled with both injury and his weight, leaving a feeling of what could have been had everything gone right.

From finishing fourth in the Ballon d'Or in 1994 after helping Sweden reach the semi-final of the World Cup, Brolin's career fell apart in the space of four years, and he retired from the game in 1998.

Is Tomas Brolin one of the worst players in the history of the Premier League? Let us know in the comments section.

In total, he made just 19 appearances for Leeds, going on loan to FC Zurich and former club Parma, before joining Crystal Palace and hanging up his boots after a spell with Hudiksvalls FF.

In 2003 Leeds fans voted him the club's worst-ever player, while in 2007 he was awarded the unenviable title of the second-worst player in Premier League history.

Despite all of that, Brolin enjoyed a real affinity with the Elland Road faithful and even now considers himself a supporter of the club.

Asked why things didn't work out in Leeds during a 2018 interview with FourFourTwo, he replied: "My position was one of the main points, and poor management.

"I liked Yorkshire and the fans were amazing. I still follow Leeds like a supporter."

"I remember being on the bench for the 1996 League Cup Final against Aston Villa – it was so frustrating, but the fans kept signing my name because they wanted me on – I’ll never forget that.

"They knew something wasn’t right, and that it wasn’t only my fault. Fans are clever like that – they all understood that something strange was going on with the Leeds management."

Whether it was quite as strange as a naked snow angel, we'll probably never know.
