Owen Hargreaves pulls off lovely rabona goal in the BT studio with first touch in two years

Former Bayern Munich and Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves hasn't played professionally in two years since no top-flight clubs wanted to take a chance on his spontaneously exploding joints injuring their other players. Now a pundit for BT Sport, Hargreaves is confined to the studio and at the start of the clip above, claims he hasn't touched a ball in two years. He then proceeds to bang in a rabona off the post on his first try. 

Of course, when he says he hasn't touched a ball in two years he really means that he's been practicing this in a shed eight hours a day for the last 17 months while listening to the Karate Kid soundtrack and crying, but it's best not to dwell on that and just celebrate with some Fruit Pastilles.
