Bum of God

Video: Maradona displays an unusual new skill

The ‘Bum Trap’ to be introduced to football’s rich lexicon

This week, Argentinean legend Maradona returned to the pitch for a charity game in Rome hosted by Eros Ramazzotti (one of the most successful Italian singer/songwriters of all time, apparently). Just when you thought you had seen the entire contents of the FIFA Player of the Century’s trick book, he goes and writes another chapter. At around (0.24), he receives a lateral pass and traps it with his sizeable derrière. Take that, conventional football techniques!

And despite it being a charity game, it’s great to see the 47-year-old go down like a sack of shit to win a penalty.
