Surrounded by red smoke, the former Inter player posed with the supporters.

After going back inside the building, the future OM player then came out to clap the hands of the supporters once again.

A decision that almost brought him down.

While running towards his new fans, the Chilean slipped on an unlit smoke bomb on the ground, and almost fell.

More fear than harm, for what could have been one of the most unusual injuries of the summer.
