While in the Boston area for a preseason friendly match at Gillette Stadium, Italian football club AS Roma took a behind the scenes tour of the TD Garden on Wednesday.

During the tour Roma players stopped by the locker room of the stadium’s resident basketball, the Boston Celtics. Naturally Celtics star point guard Isaiah Thomas’ locker was of most interest to the football players. Thomas got wind of the shopping around his locker and took to Twitter to chime in a funny response.

On Sunday July 30th, AS Roma will square off against Italian champions Juventus in Foxborough at Gillette Stadium for a 4 p.m. friendly match.
