Dutch midfielder Marten de Roon has posted a video showing him being 'snubbed' by Atalanta fans at their club shop despite making a brilliant shirt offer to them.
De Roon uploaded the video to his 91,000 Twitter followers in which he waits at the club shop in Bergamo for fans to purchase a shirt with his name on the back.
He had started the video by saying that the first three supporters to do this would have the shirt signed and paid for by the 30-year-old Dutchman.
However, de Roon is then seen making a puzzle, playing cards with himself and sleeping in a fitting room as he waits for a fan.
The video, captioned "I bet Messi never has to deal with this", has already racked up over 28,000 likes after being uploaded to Twitter on Thursday morning.
De Roon starts the video by explaining the premise as he says: “We’re here in the Atalanta store in Bergamo.
"The first three people who come in and buy a ‘Marten de Roon’ shirt, I will sign the shirt and also pay for it. So, hopefully they come fast.”

He can then be seen waiting for fans to come in to the store and buy a 'Marten de Roon' shirt only to soon become bored as the wait gets longer.
De Roon is seen looking at items in the store, attempting a puzzle, playing cards, sleeping up against the wall of a fitting room and watching highlights of a recent Atalanta game.
He is put out of his misery at the end of the minute-long video when a member of staff tells him that the shop is now shut and he has to leave.
The former Middlesbrough man, who spent one season at the Riverside, has 27 caps for the Netherlands and was a member of their squad at the Euros.
He has made two appearances for Atalanta this season, one in the league and one in the Champions League, having missed the first four Serie A matchdays through suspension.
