Marco Borriello assured he “doesn’t need” strip clubs and was just in Moscow to hang around with Roma teammates.
The striker was one of those photographed outside the venue after their 1-1 Champions League draw with CSKA Moscow on Tuesday.
“It was just a night out to hang out with the group! Fortunately I don’t need strip clubs to do anything else!” wrote Borriello on Twitter.
Giallorossi director Walter Sabatini also played down the incident, assuring “nothing happened” and the team were on permission after the game.
They were not due to fly back to Italy until the next day and had first taken pictures in Red Square before wandering over to the club.
