Serie A squad Bologna might need to step up their organizational skills after leaving their newest signing, Ibson, stranded at the airport upon arriving from Brazil:

The central midfielder was then forced to hail a cab and make his own way to his new home.

The misunderstanding has brought such shame upon the club that chairman Albano Guaraldi has reportedly suspended four executives over their failure to collect their new star.

Bologna currently sit near the bottom of the league standings with only three wins this season, so they can ill-afford to leave good players at the airport.
