ROMANTIC Manuel Locatelli enjoyed the perfect weekend – backing up his winning goal by getting engaged.
The Juventus midfielder curled into the bottom corner to secure a 1-0 win against Torino on Saturday.
And then he capped off a memorable 24 hours by getting down on one knee – with his stunning partner Thessa Lacovich saying yes.
The Italy Euro 2020 hero – who joined Juve in the summer – ensured he made it a special occasion for his 23-year-old lover.
E-commerce guru Lacovich took to social media to show fans an insight into the proposal.
The happy couple headed to the Mandarin Oriental on Lake Como for an idyllic mini-retreat along with their dog Teddy.
Their luxury hotel room included a balcony with gorgeous views over the lake.
Locatelli brought a bouquet of roses and prepared a tasty banquet of sweet treats as their celebrated their engagement.

And his fiancee showed off the sparkling ring and captioned the posts: "Yes with all my heart."
She later added to her 72,000 Instagram followers: "Ask me if I'm happy."
Alvaro Morata's excited wife Alice Campello commented: "What a thrill."
Locatelli also took to social media and simply said: "Yes."
Juventus celebrated the joyful news on social media – but manager Max Allegri was fully focused on praising his midfielder for his performances on the pitch rather than off it.
Allegri said: "He has come in well, he has a lot of room for improvement even if he has already improved because he varies his plays and puts himself in the position of a director.
"He is good and has technique."
