The Leeds United manager impressed the crowd – and himself – with his silky touchline skills
Leeds manager Daniel Farke‘s playing career in his native Germany wasn’t the most impressive, though for anyone to make a living in professional sports is impressive enough, right?
He described himself as ‘the slowest striker in the whole of Western Europe’, but on the touchline at the club’s 3-0 defeat of Watford, he showed he still has something in his locker.
Watch what happened.

His neat control earned that round of applause from the fans, and a virtual one from Twitter.
Love that he can’t hide how pleased he is with himself pic.twitter.com/1QTI9TZG8n

If I hadn’t seen this with my own eyes I would think it was fake.

Gotta respect the control. Even if he is wearing Matalan trackie bottoms. https://t.co/vymNIuJEXz

One of the oddity enjoyments I get from watching a game; when managers get the rare opportunity to show off their touch and absolutely nail it https://t.co/pPkpezfUMp

Chelsea could well be lining up an 8 year deal on the strength of this alone. https://t.co/hUYeEUwQru

Just a reminder that it doesn’t always work out like that.
