At 48, Sinisa Mihajlović is still humiliating goalkeepers with that immaculate left foot

DURING HIS PLAYING career with the likes of Sampdoria and Lazio, the mere sight of Sinisa Mihajlovic stepping up to the edge of the area to take a free-kick would be enough to send any goalkeeper into a panic.

His remarkable left-foot thumped, blasted and curled set-pieces to the net in various grounds around the world, marking him out as a specialist, an artist.

And it seems that even at the age of 48, he hasn’t lost it.

Coaching in Serie A ever since retiring in 2006, he’s had a variety of managerial gigs, most notably at AC Milan.

He’s now at Torino and during a recent pre-season training session, he decided to see what his goalkeepers were made of when it came to stopping his shots.

The results were pretty remarkable.
