Usually, the introductory press conference is a rather boring affair with smiling general managers and players attempting to answer questions from the omnipresent media.
Recently, Italian Serie A team Napoli signed midfielder Gokhan Inler to the squad and decided to have a little fun at the media’s expense by having him don a lion’s mask to hide his identity.
So, during the introductory press conference, the media didn’t know who Napoli signed until Inler turned around to them to show off his jersey number:
