Inter Milan full-back Denzel Dumfries has revealed his teammates were 'insulted' by a meal combination and he promised to never do it again.
We've all got weird eating habits, no matter what you think. But Dumfries unleashed his during Inter training and it shocked his teammates.
The Netherlands international has confessed he adds chicken to pasta al pesto, which is traditionally served with no meat.
Dumfries told UEFA's official website: "Food is very important in Italy. Two weeks ago they all got mad at me for adding chicken over pesto pasta. For them an insult to pasta. I will not do it again."
Pasta with pesto has a strong tradition about it in Italy and one Reddit user compares putting chicken with it to putting ketchup on steak.
Make of that what you will.
Dumfries arrived at the San Siro from PSV Eindhoven last summer after impressing at Euro 2020.
He had big boots to fill following Achraf Hakimi's departure for Paris Saint-Germain, but he's done so admirably.
The 25-year-old has made 21 appearances in Serie A, scoring three times and registering three assists.
Inter are currently second in the league but are one point behind bitter rivals AC Milan and have one game in hand.
Simone Inzaghi's side drew their last game 1-1 with Napoli.
Wednesday will see them take on Liverpool in Champions League action, with Jurgen Klopp's men on a six-match winning streak.
Reds midfielder Fabinho spoke following Sunday's 1-0 win over Burnley and said he's looking forward to facing one of Italy's standout sides.
"This will be a really tough game," he stated.
"Inter right now is the best Italian team, that's why they are up near the top in the league.
"They play good, they are a strong team. They play together maybe four or five seasons, some players.
"We have two to three days to prepare for this game and hopefully go to Milan and have a good result in a nice stadium."
