FOOTY fans were left blown away after Xavi Hernandez showed off his sublime first touch on the sideline.
The former Barcelona midfielder, 42, is now manager after returning to the Nou Camp last year.
On the domestic front, things are going well for Xavi after a mega summer of spending, with Barca well in the title hunt.
They are just three points behind LaLiga leaders Real Madrid after cruising to a 4-0 win over Athletic Bilbao last night.
However, supporters were more impressed by Xaviâs skills as he watched the game from the sides.
A wayward kick from Bilbaoâs goalie saw the ball spin wildly into the air.
It then dropped from a great height straight towards Xavi.
But the former playmaker had no fear about extending his leg and controlling the ball delicately in one swift movement, prompting raucous cheers from the crowd.
Fans at home were left blown away by Xaviâs touch too, with the veteran proving he could likely still hack it on the field.
And some couldnât believe he did it all while wearing an immaculately-clean pair of white trainers.

One declared: âSo good. Every kid that plays should watch this.â
Another yelled: âMan hasnât played in years and is wearing some designed shoes. Still has a better touch than half his team.â

Another added: âThat was super cool.â
Xavi is undoubtedly one of the greatest players ever, having scored 85 goals in 767 games for Barcelona.
He won eight titles and four Champions Leagues at the Nou Camp.
And after leaving in 2015, Xavi spent a further four years playing for Al Sadd before becoming the Qatari sideâs manager.
Xavi also won 133 caps for Spain, winning two Euros and a World Cup in the process.
