Juventus defender Mehdi Benatia was left embarrassed when a model refused to shake his hands during thr trophy presentation as the club lifts another Serie-A title in Italy.
The Old Lady lifted the Scudetto for the seventh consecutive year after their 2-1 victory against Verona on Saturday.
And as Benatia made his way to the podium to collect his winners medal, he had to walk past two beautiful models at the bottom of the steps.
Cool as you like, the 31-year-old Moroccan international extended his hand expecting one of the women to return the favour.
But to his surprise, Benatia was left standing there was his arm outstretched as one of the models casually shook her head.
He hesitated a little as the woman standing next to them shared a nervous laugh.
Benatia eventually gave up and headed up the podium to get something he could get his hands on – the Serie A trophy. He then looked embarrassed as he made his way towards the Scudetto
It was an emotional day inside the stadium and Juventus waved goodbye to club legend Gianluigi Buffon. The veteran keeper made his final walk off the field in the 62nd minute when he was substituted to a huge reception in the crowd.
It was a day of celebration but also of tears for the Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon as he played his last match for the Bianconeri after 17 years at the club.
Juventus beat already-relegated Hellas Verona 2-1 in the final round of Serie A on Saturday, an hors d’oeuvre to the main course that was bidding an emotional farewell to Buffon and receiving the league trophy for a record-extending seventh successive time.
Buffon, widely regarded as one of the best goalkeepers ever, announced on Thursday he was leaving Juventus although the 40-year-old World Cup winner has put off retirement to consider offers to play overseas.
