MARCUS THURAM once had to google himself to get past security at the San Siro before playing against Inter Milan.
However, Thuram has now joined the Italian club and had to convince the security forces that he is a professional footballer.
Thuram – son of French world champion Lilian – appeared at the San Siro in 2020 ahead of a Champions League clash to represent Borussia Monchengladbach against Inter Milan.
However, tight security prevented him from entering, prompting him to google it himself.
And the club official Twitter The account tweeted the exchange featuring photos of Thuram searching his own name online before later deleting the post.
The mix-up is likely caused by Thuram, 25, wearing a face mask amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Luckily, Thuram was finally allowed to take his seat alongside coach Marco Rose for a pre-match press conference.
