VIDEO: Take Two! New AC Milan Signing Lucas Biglia Gets Second Chance After Accidental 'Forza Lazio'

Monday July 24th, 2017

If you missed it last week, the latest signing to put pen to paper with the free-spending AC Milan had an immediate blunder whilst signing autographs for the club's fans, when Lucas Biglia fired off a 'Forza Lazio' by accident.

It was a moment of pure embarrassment for the midfielder, and while the Milan fans saw the funny side of the slip-up, Biglia has managed to correct himself since his nightmare.

For those of you who haven't seen it, here he is endearing himself to his new supporters like no other:​

​​That's the kind of moment where you want the ground to swallow you up. But alas, the Argentinian has made amends in a press conference after his signing - though he did need a bit of help.

​​The poor man looks petrified ahead of his second opportunity, but that smile of relief shows just how much of a weight is off Biglia's shoulders.

Regardless of any embarrassing moments, the 31-year-old becomes yet another impressive signing to add to Milan's 'Summer 17' scrapbook of transfers.

The likes of Franck Kessie, Ricardo Rodriguez, Leonardo Bonucci and Andre Silva are a small smattering of a handful of players employed by the San Siro outfit this summer, and the club's fans have a lot to be excited about.

With such a strong squad heading into the new season, as well as the newly signed contract from Gianluigi Donnarumma, Milan look a force to be reckoned with as they attempt to hit the heights of a decade ago.

This could be the start of something special for the club.
