Italy Goalkeeper Has £300,000 Ferrari Smashed To Pieces By Car Wash Worker

Italy Goalkeeper Has £300,000 Ferrari Smashed To Pieces By Car Wash Worker

Italy and Genoa goalkeeper Federico Marchetti had his luxury, £300,000 Ferrari absolutely totalled after he sent it to a car wash.

But the 37-year-old Serie A keeper earned praise from fans for his calm response to the shocking news, as he said: "Thank God no one was hurt, that is the most important thing," on social media.

Definitely damaged, however was Marchetti's red Ferrari 812 Superfast.

The keeper arranged to have his super-car professionally cleaned. But, en route to returning it to Genoa's training complex, a car wash worker lost control, hit five parked cars and crumpled the front of the vehicle into a barrier.

Thankfully, the Ferrari's driver at the time escaped unharmed. Although videos of the aftermath, with emergency services clearing up the debris, shows that the front of the car is completely obliterated.

A Ferrari 812 Superfast is one of the world's most powerful sports cars, able to go from zero to 60mph in less than three seconds and reach a top speed of 211mph. It comes with a £300,000 price tag.

The 37-year-old Marchetti signed for Genoa in 2018 after making 194 appearances for Lazio, where he was nicknamed 'Tarzan'.

He's also made 11 appearances for Italy and played in the 2010 World Cup after Gianluigi Buffon was ruled out with injury, although Marchetti's last call-up to the senior squad came in 2016.

"Bravo, you are a gentleman," said one football fan on Instagram as Marchetti shared a message after news broke, swallowing any anger he may have felt and thanking God that nobody was injured in the crash.

"A fantastic man," replied another follower. "We love you... You are the best."
