FIGC investigating Atalanta tank incident

New Atalanta signing Giulio Migliaccio and a number of the club’s fans are under investigation by the Italian Football Association (FIGC) after they drove a tank over two cars emblazoned with the names of the side’s rivals, Brescia and Roma.

Giulio Migliaccio joined Atalanta from Palermo.

The tank crushed the cars as part of Atalanta’s official season opening celebration evening, as well as Migliaccio’s official presentation, much to the delight of several hundred supporters.

The incident happened at Orio al Serio, close to Bergamo, the home of the Serie A side.

It is nothing new, however, with the tank having been used for pre-season parades since 2008.

The FIGC, though, has since opened an enquiry into the fans’ behaviour, while action could also be taken against Migliaccio.

“Certainly there are curious ways in which fans act,” Damiano Tommasi, president of the footballers’ union, Assocalciatori, said. “Migliaccio has just arrived from Palermo and I don’t think he imagined they would have done what they did with that tank.”

Claudio Caniggia, Cristiano Doni and, last year, German Denis were also paraded on the tank, which is owned by a local Atalanta fan.

However, unlike this year, the tank did not crush any cars symbolising Atalanta’s rivals.
