Watch Lisandro Martinez's outrageous skill and trick shot in training but fans aren't convinced it's good for Man Utd | The SunJuly 19, 2022
MANCHESTER UNITED new boy Lisandro Martinez is quite the trickster it seems.
Footage has emerged of the £55million man showing off his outrageous skill in Ajax training from before he joined the Red Devils.
The 24-year-old cleverly flicks the ball up over his head, while standing behind the goal line.
Martinez then spins around while the ball is in the air.
As the ball drops he catches it perfectly on the half volley with the outside of his boot.
The ball heads goalwards, somehow spinning into the back of the net despite Martinez actually starting from BEHIND the goal line.

One poked fun at Martinez on social media in response to the video, saying: "That will be useful in defence."
Another wrote: "Cant wait for him to pull that one off in defence!"
