One of the most protracted summer transfer stories in Serie A finally reached a conclusion on Monday when the former Udinese man turned up at the presentation of Napoli's new shirt.

However, even after the 27-year-old made his entrance into the press room, the media waiting at Napoli's headquarters were forced to hang on an extra few seconds to confirm the identity of the player.

Why? Because Napoli's eccentric owner Aurelio De Laurentiis managed to persuade the Swiss midfielder to don the lion's head.

Needless to say, İnler got a roaring ovation when he spun around to reveal his trademark No 88 shirt, and then finally lifted his mask to put the gathered press out of their misery.
