Atalanta midfielder to be investigated after tank incident

MigliaccioThe FIGC (Italian Football Federation) have launched an investigation into Atalanta’s Giulio Migliaccio after he was photographed driving a tank over two cars painted rival colours.

The incident took place at the Festa della Dea, an annual week long celebration in Bergamo dedicated to their football club.

Forza Italian Football’s Atalanta correspondent Clark Stupple was at the event and reported that two cars painted in Brescia and Roma colours were steamrollered by the tank, which had various players and fans on board.

“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,” Migliaccio told the press.

“Even as an unaware protagonist, I’m very sorry for the incident.”

Migliaccio only signed for La Dea last week and has already endeared himself to the Nerazzurri faithful.
