Italian footballer marks his retirement with a fake helicopter kidnapping.
55-year-old Ignazio Barbagallo has decided to call time on his ‘professional’ career in one of the lower league clubs.
Nothing extraordinary or worthy of any kind of world-wide news.
The reason why this has turned into a sensational story is because Barbagallo stagged a fake helicopter kidnapping right in the middle of the match.
Yeah, you read that right, a FAKE HELICOPTER KIDNAPPING!
This is something a world of football has never seen before.
This situation also looked very real to the spectators, who were startled when the helicopter landed in the middle of the pitch, creating something of a mini desert storm. An armed man, wearing hoods, got off the helicopter, took Barbagallo with them on
A crazy situation that was eventually exposed as fake.
The story doesn’t end there as the club suffered some serious consequences for this bizarre prank. They have been banned from the competition until the end of the season and also got a monetary fine.
This will all make Barbagallo’s retirement go down in the history as the craziest ever.
