American Juve star Weston McKennie went viral over the weekend after a picture of him checking out Italian sports Journalist Diletta Leotta went viral report The Sun.
The 22-year-old was caught red handed taking a good look at DAZN sports reporter Leotta and one eagle-eyed fan captured the moment and published it online.
Italian sports Journalist Tancredi Palmeri was quick to weigh in saying ‘Weston McKennie wasn’t ready for Italian football.’
The moment was captured when Leotta was presenting near the Juventus bench ahead of the 1-1 draw against Verona on Saturday night.
The glamorous 29-year-old caught the attention of McKennie and the image pretty much speaks for itself as McKennie’s facial expression was a dead give-away and fans loved it.
