VIDEO: Thiago Alcantara Scores Beautiful Backheel Goal in Bayern Training

Thiago Alcantara makes things look so easy, doesn’t he?

The Spanish playmaker showed off more of his silky skills in Bayern Munich training this week – and we can’t get enough of this beautiful backheel goal.

Strolling into the box during a crossing and finishing session, the former Barcelona man beats third-choice goalie Sven Ulreich with a lovely effort:

Bayern fans will be hoping they can see more of this from Thiago this season – and will be boosted at seeing him start the majority of games already.

He was brought to Germany by Pep Guardiola in a £15million deal two years ago, but has played just 47 times.

That low appearance is a result of a knee ligament tear injury he picked up early last year and only recovered from in April this year.

We’re certainly excited to see if he can reproduce some of these training skills in real games throughout the campaign.
