About 12,000 fans welcomed new signing Franck Ribery at Fiorentina’s Stadio Artemio Franchi on Thursday.
Ribery walked onto the field to the “Rocky” theme tune, and performed a few ball tricks in the centre circle, before speaking to the fans.
The 36-year-old Frenchman then walked around the edge of the pitch, signing autographs, and posing for photos with fans.
Ribery signed a two-year deal on Wednesday with Fiorentina, who are aiming for a renaissance under their new American ownership.
Ribery was a free agent after 12 seasons with Bayern Munich, which included a Champions League title in 2013.
