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 did a few ball tricks in the center 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, which is aiming for a renaissance under its new American ownership.
