Alexis Saelemaekers, a
AC Milan player, stunned fans with an incredible piece of wizardry during their 1-0 Champions League victory over Atletico Madrid. When the referee blew the half-time whistle, the Belgian winger showed off the incredible piece of trickery, and fans were stunned by the skill move.
Saelemaekers appears to flick the ball into the air with his right foot before turning 180 degrees and performing an in-air elastico chop with his left. Despite his social media success, AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli may not have been impressed with the 22-year-old.
