Eliaquim Mangala… not a name you’d usually associate with a phenomenal overhead kick – right? Well it’s time to think again.
Mangala has been linked with a move away from the club this summer and has already rejected a move to Spartak Moscow. However, a lack of obvious candidates could see Pep Guardiola keep Eliaquim Mangala for a further season, giving him the chance to impress and regain his spot in the side.
By the looks of his goal, the defender could also be used as a forward. Forget Alexis Sanchez, forget Kylian Mbappé… step up Eliaquim Mangala.
The Frenchman took to Twitter this evening to share his wonder goal with the world, simply captioning the video with “No comment !”. It’s well worth a watch, so here it is:
