Video: Roberto Firmino pulls off outrageous piece of skill

by Ben Topliss

Rumoured Manchester United target Roberto Firmino clearly has a few tricks up his sleeve having registered ten goals and 12 assists for Hoffenheim in all competitions last term but this is just showing off.

With just three touches of the ball, the Brazilian manages to volley into a basketball net from all of 20 yards without even looking.

Of course, the video may or may not have been a fake to promote Adidas’ new X15 boots, but the fact remains that Firmino can do things with a football that others simply can’t.

If Man United bring the player in then they will have a real talent on their hands.



Compared to players such as Thomas Muller in the past, Firmino is capable of playing anywhere across the front line.

United already have the likes of Angel di Maria and Juan Mata at the club so Louis van Gaal may well see him as a replacement for Radamel Falcao up top following the Colombian’s departure.

It is safe to say that the Old Trafford faithful would love to see some similarly outrageous pieces of skill from Firmino should he arrive at the club this summer.
