AS Roma have taken their frustration on losing out to Barcelona for the signing of Malcolm with some humour. At least, for the public side of things via their social media team. On Wednesday, the Italian club announced the arrival of their new goalkeeper, Sweden's Robin Olsen. This signing came just one day after news broke that Bordeaux winger Malcolm, who was believed to be en route to putting pen to paper in Rome, did an 11th-hour u-turn and ended up at Barcelona. Roma's Twitter account welcomed Olsen with a nod in the direction of another of his country's prized exports, furniture company Ikea. The post copied the style of Ikea's instruction manuals to resemble the goalkeeper as a product needing to be put together. An unexpected response came back from Ikea. In it they confirmed that the purchased goalkeeper had indeed been shipped, however, another requested package had been lost, including the name of the Brazilian in a direct reference to the Malcom situation.
