Zenit Saint Petersburg have hilariously trolled Roma over their surprising capture of Barcelona flop Malcom.
The Russian Premier League champions announced on Friday their acquisition of the Brazilian winger, 22, for a fee of £41m and dropped a video on Twitter to celebrate his signing.
The video spotlights the different clubs that Malcom has played for across his club career, which includes a tongue-in-cheek reference to his failed move to Roma.
The former Bordeaux star had been heavily linked with a move to the Italian side last summer, with Roma fans even waiting for his arrival at the airport.
But the Brazilian decided to make a stunning U-turn and completed a move to Barcelona for £36.5m.
Zenit have hilariously listed his playing career at Roma from 22nd July to 23rd July 2018.
The Roma Twitter account has brilliantly responded to it by congratulating Malcom on his move to the Russian league.
"Ultra proud to have had you with us Malcom. Now go bring all that greatness to the Russian league. Good luck at @fczenit_en," Roma tweeted.
Malcom became one of the most expensive signings in Russian football history after Zenit snapped him up on a long-term deal.
The Zenit new boy made 24 appearances for the Spanish champions last season and scored four times and assisted twice.
Will Malcom be successful at Zenit?
Let us know in the comments.
