Patrick Vieira Attempts Behind-the-Goal Shot.. Nails it on Fifth

Patrick Vieira Attempts Behind-the-Goal Shot.. Nails it on Fifth

Patrick Vieira is the latest football personality to attempt the behind-the-goal shot in training.

We’ve already seen Lionel Messi, Paul Pogba, Eden Hazard and Luis Suarez give it a go with differing levels of success.

Even David Villa – one of Vieira’s players at New York City – has tried it, scoring twice in a recent training session with the MLS side.

But the Frenchman is the first manager we’ve seen attempt it, going up against City goalkeeping coach Rob Vartughian recently.

After a bit of joking, Varthugian did in two impressive attemps, but surely one of football’s best ever players did it in one?

You can see Vieira in the full clash with Varthugian here as well as the rest of City’s training session ahead of their clash with New England Revolution on Saturday right here:

Vieira might not be too good on the ball anymore, but he’s hoping to show plenty of quality in the dugout in New York.

He won his opening game 4-3 against Chicago Fire, however, he followed that up with a 2-2 draw against Toronto before losing 1-0 to Orlando City at the weekend.
