Roma's New Signing Michel Bastos Lands Himself In The Shit With Anti-Lazio Scarf

Roma's New Signing Michel Bastos Lands Himself In The Shit With Anti-Lazio Scarf

On Tuesday night, before his team knocked Juventus out of the Coppa Italia, Roma’s new boy Michel Bastos was introduced to the fans.

The loan signing from United Arab Emirates side Al Ain was paraded prior to kick off, however, before he has even kicked a ball, it appears Bastos is already under the hammer …

The Brazilian unknowingly held aloft a scarf with the slogan ‘Lazio Merda’ which translates to ‘Lazio Shit’.

Roma have since apologised for the incident and defended their new signing.

A Roma statement said: “Bastos has shown a scarf thrown by the fans without knowing the message it had.

“The club and Michel would like to apologise for what took place.”

Nice way to introduce yourself Michel!
