New Roma signing Michel Bastos gets into trouble during presentation to the Stadio Olimpico

Bastos enjoyed success at Schalke last season

Michel Bastos has immediately endeared himself to the Roma faithful and possibly made himself a target for the next Derby della Capitale.

The Brazilian was presented to the Stadio Olimpico before Roma’s triumphant 1-0 win over Juventus in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia.

Unfortunately though for the club and Bastos, it didn’t run as smoothly as expected as the 30-year-old held up a scarf, which in English means "Lazio S***".

A very disrespectful thrase to the other Rome club, although Roma fans certainly would have loved their new signing holding up a scarf endorsing that message.

However, Bastos was simply holding up a scarf thrown to him unaware of what it says and of the repercussions of holding it up.

Roma tweeted from their official twitter account an apology, they added: “Bastos held up a scarf thrown to him by the fans unaware of the message it displayed.

“The club and Michel apologize for any offence caused.”

A slightly embarrassing moment for the former Schalke player, if not a comical one. He won’t let it effect him though that is for sure and will be focused on making an impressive debut this weekend against Verona should he be selected.
