“Obviously, I have a look that is scary,” Nainggolan told Belgium’s La Dernière Heure.
The guests proceeded to summon the local police, who luckily upon arrival, “recognized me immediately,” Nainggolan said.
The 27-year-old, who plays professionally for the Italian club Roma, wasn’t angered by the guests’ mistake, however. He “laughed it off,” according to La Derniere Heure, before posing with the police officers, who were also fans.
The incident comes just days after a group of terrorists wreaked havoc in Paris, killing at least 129 in multiple attacks.
Nainggolan has since returned to Rome, where he is set to rejoin Roma in time for Saturday’s Serie A matchup against Bologna.
