Newly-signed Atalanta midfielder Giulio Migliaccio is already in trouble with the Italian football federation after riding in a tank (yes, a tank) that was driven over cars decorated to represent rival clubs Roma and Brescia at a supporters festival.
The incident is shown in the video above.
He says: ''I only realized when the tank was going over them, and since I could not see because I was high up and at the back, I did not know that they had the symbols of two football clubs on them.''
He says ''even as an unaware protagonist, I'm very sorry for the incident.''
Migliaccio signed from Palermo last week. It is his second stint at the club, having made 78 appearances for Orobici between 2005 and 2007, scoring four times.
In Migliaccio's defence, if the supporters of your new club say, "We have a tank and we want you to get in it," you're probably going to get in to avoid a fate similar to those cars.
I mean...these people had a tank. A tank!
