It has been revealed that it was unsettled Portuguese midfielder Tiago Mendes who locked Juventus president, Giovanni Cobolli Gigli inside a washroom for over an hour.

Talking to Sky Italia, Cobolli confirmed the bizarre rumour about his capture. "The story of me being locked in the toilet by Tiago is true," claimed the Juve President.

"In any case, Alessandro Del Piero responded to the noise I made banging on the door and offered to break it down."

Originally the reports were that Cobolli had been rescued by club captain Del Piero after he had accidentally been locked within the washroom. However, now it's been revealed that was not the case.

Apparently, Tiago is desperate to play in the Champions League and was upset at the Bianconeri President for attempting to push him toward Everton and Monaco who are not involved in Europe's premier competition. Thus, Tiago locked Cobolli in the washroom as a sort of revenge. Rumours suggest that he was locked inside for over an hour before Del Piero heard the patron.

"(Juventus Coach) Claudio Ranieri still considers Tiago a part of the squad, but anything could happen tomorrow in Italian football," Cobolli continued to explain. "Hopefully, by midnight Tiago will have found another club."

Tiago certainly has not the best of time since joining Juventus from Lyon for 13 million euros at the beginning of last season, only making 20 appearances for the Bianconeri. In fact, you may recall Goal.com listed Tiago as the third biggest flop of the 2007/08 season.

Funniest thing I've heard all week. They really should just let Tiago go. There would be no shortage of clubs willing to buy him.

After all being a flop at Juve means nothing. Mutu didn't click at Juve but he's not a flop.

It is true that the president remained closed in a washroom and that Del Piero went to help him......... but, please, DON'T BELIEVE that TIAGO does such things !!

Even because he was regularly on the bench on sunday match against Fiorentina:
do you think it would have been possible if really happened that ??

Anyway, all newspapers reported that agency, but without further explanation.

the fact is another example of how the new management is not able to make other respect themself and JUVE's image....... all the media power is in the hand of milanais groups, favouring Inter and Milan.

Anyway, the story is definitivly funny also if invented..........just I wish it was real
