League Two Manager Shows Off Insane First Touch, Flicks Ball Away From Opposing Player And Celebrates
Mark Hughes is the manager of League Two club Bradford City. While youngsters might write him off as just another manager, it’s important to remember he's a two-time Premier League winner with Manchester United and made 72 appearances for the Welsh national team, scoring 16 goals.
The former forward turned manager showed the world he still has a trick or two up his sleeve during Bradford City’s Football League Trophy match vs. Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.
When his side cleared the ball toward his touchline, Hughes decided it was time to bust out the skills.
Another week, another opportunity to explore the depths to which I will exploit recency bias. Is Leadership Council member Christian Pulisic really being left off the plane or is that just a crutch for article formatting? Is Jesse Marsch a traitor to his nation for taking off Brenden Aaronson before full-time? Is Joe Scally the defensive infiltrator we've been having sleepless nights about?

No country has been distancing itself from middle school putdowns as effectively as Turkey this summer.
Back in June, the United Nations agreed to officially change the country's name from Turkey to its Turkish name of Türkiye.

NWSL forward Lo’eau LaBonta went viral over the weekend for her goal celebration. The Kansas City Current star feigned a hamstring injury before she started twerking.

¡Arrr, Arrr, Arrr! Raúl Jiménez volvió a anotar un gol por los puntos después de 166 días, en la victoria 2-1 de Wolverhampton sobre el Preston North End en la segunda ronda de la Carabao Cup.

With her team trailing in the 82nd minute LaBonta fired in the equalizer from the penalty spot and wheeled away in celebration. KC fans were given a slight heart attack when their team’s top goal scorer on the season started limping and grabbed at her hamstring.
