Bundesliga Striker Has To Google Himself To Pass Stadium ID Check

Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram had to Google himself to pass an identification check at the San Siro.


The Bundesliga outfit take on Inter Milan later this evening and it'll be their first taste of Champions League football in four years.

Since they were last in Europe's elite competition, they have recruited a number of younger players including Thuram, son of World Cup winner Lilian.

Despite having a famous dad, staff in Milan still needed the 23-year-old's identity, so he whipped out his iPhone to prove who he is.

Fans have reacted to the incident and they think it's a brilliant move from the Frenchman.

Thuram has started this season with one goal and two assists in four games.

Monchengladbach currently sit 11th in the league after winning one game so far.

Inter boss Antonio Conte is expecting Monchengladbach to put up a strong challenge in their opening Group B clash.

"When you finish in the top four of the German league it means that you have important values. They are prepared and I expect a good match," he told Inter TV per SempreInter.

A number of Inter stars have played in the Bundesliga, most notably Arturo Vidal and Ivan Perisic at Bayern Munich, with the latter winning the Champions League while on loan last season.

"Yes, they have had important experiences," Conte continued. "Having said that, the experiences are all important but then you have to adapt to the reality you live in and the club in which you play for.

"I don't think the fact that they played in the Bundesliga is so influential.

"We have to face game by game, knowing that there is no time to recover and trying to get the best results, going step by step.

"Now there is the Champions League, we know that in this month we will have the whole Champions League first round and league matches. We want to improve upon what we did last year."

Inter were eliminated at the group stages last year and dropped down to the Europa League.

They would make it to the final of the competition, before being defeated by Sevilla.
