Football: It's a loo lock-in as Tiago gives reaction to possible Blues deal.

Byline: David PRENTICE

EVERTON'S failed bid for Juventus midfielder Tiago may prove to be a lucky escape.

Although not as lucky as that engineered by Juve president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli.

The Italian official has confirmed that a disgruntled Tiago locked him in the loo in the run-up to the transfer window closing.

"It's a shame it got out, as this was something I told a friend in confidence," confirmed Gigli. "In any case, Alessandro Del Piero responded to the noise of me punching the door and offered to break it down.

"I told him it was better if someone else did it, as he needed to keep his shoulders in good shape for the Fiorentina game."

Rumours later suggested the 'accident' was in fact a spiteful gesture from Tiago, who was furious at Juventus pushing him to sign for Everton or Monaco.
