Roma forward Mirko Antonucci had his loan terminated with Portuguese side Vitoria Setubal due to "his attitude" and his frequent posting of TikTok videos.
Antonucci has 26.9k followers on social media site TikTok and 87.7k on Instagram and made six appearances for Vitoria since joining on loan in January.
Antonucci said in his apology that he would quit social media but Vitoria had already made the decision to sever ties with the striker.
"This message is to say that I'm fully aware of the mistakes I made," Antonucci wrote on Instagram. "I would like to apologize to those that felt offended: fans, club, coach and teammates. I'm going to quit social media and from now on, you are only going to see me sweat in the Vitoria Setubal jersey until the last drop. Go Vitoria!"
Vitoria had already taken the decision to sever ties, stating that "it was not good for the club."
Vitoria coach Julio Velazquez revealed this week that Antonucci had not met expectations on and off the field.
You live and you learn. Back to social media for the soccer player.
