Bart Simpsons signs on with Zenit Saint Petersburg!
The forever-aged-10, yellow-skinned, untamable little prankster that goes by the name of Bart Simpsons is now officially part of Zenit Saint Petersburg football club.
Zenit has revealed the signing of the cartoon character and according to its press release, Bart’s recruitment is part of the club’s agreement with 20th Century Fox.
Zenit announced the signing via Twitter, posting a photo of the big boy himself (pictured above) along with the post.
Zenit scores a big star indeed.
Bart is taking on the number 87, to mirror the year he first appeared on television 27 years ago.
The wonder boy was reportedly given a traditional welcome. After his arrival in Pulkovo a few days ago, he met up with Maxim Mitrofanov, general director of Zenit, at the club. Bart passed his medical exam and has started his first training session with the rest of the team.
