Robert Lewandowski’s Monday morning was pretty bad

We’ve all had a case of the Mondays, but Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski had a particularly bad morning today.

The Polish star, who will be headed to Bundesliga rival Bayern Munich after this season, was apparently the victim of a theft — or possibly a prank by bitter BVB fans. The latter wouldn’t be surprising, especially considering the way former Dortmund star Mario Götze was treated when he made the swap to Bayern last year.

Atalanta fans crush rival cars with tank as new club signing takes joy ride

Giulio Migliaccio signed with Serie A club Atalanta last week, and has already managed to get himself into hot water.

When a player signs with a new team, there is a natural reaction to want the fan base to like you, even if it means taking part in endeavors that are not the most well-thought out. Like say, riding in a tank. At a preseason fan festival, Atalanta supporters painted two cars to represent rival clubs Brescia and Roma.

With Migliaccio aboard a tank — yes, an actual tank — this happened:

The midfielder said he was unaware of what was going on until the tank was going over the cars, but apologized for the incident anyway:

”I only realized when the tank was going over them, and since I could not see because I was high up and at the back, I did not know that they had the symbols of two football clubs on them.”

The Italian soccer federation has now opened an investigation into the incident. It may be fun to ride tanks, but it’s something that is usually frowned upon outside of the military.

You’ll never guess the lengths that Manchester City’s defender Kolo Toure took to have an affair with a young model.

Reports suggest that Toure tricked a student into an affair lasting about two(!) years by claiming to be, yeah you guessed it, a car salesman named Francois.

No shame. But we gotta ask, did he pretend to be a new or used car salesman?
