Juventus had a memorable day in the office as they won their 34th Serie A title following a 2-1 win over Verona on Saturday night.

Defender Mehdi Benatia, however, would perhaps want to erase some memories from the day as he was snubbed a handshake by a hostess during title celebrations.

On his way up to pick up the trophy, Benatia stretched his arm to one of the hostesses, only to be turned down with a polite nod. He, then, shared a wry smile with the other one standing next.

Embarrassing, isn’t it?

This is not the first time something like this has happened. Back in 2013, Nicklas Bendtner, a former Juventus forward, did the same while collecting his medal, only that both the hostesses had obliged.

And Twitterati were quick to draw comparisons. “#Benatia is the new #Bendtner,” one user wrote. “Bendtner > Benatia,” an other user wrote.
