CLARENCE SEEDORF wowed his Deportivo subs bench with an impeccable first touch from the technical area during Saturday’s win over Athletic Bilbao.
The Dutchman was watching on from the touchlines when defender Fabian Schar booted the ball into the clouds and out of play.

And as it hurtled towards the ground, Deportivo boss Seedorf – stood in a black suit with trainers on and his arms folded – effortlessly trapped it with his foot.

Four-time Champions League winner Seedorf, 42, does not even crack a smile after proving to have the best touch in the San Mames, until Borja Valle grabs his attention and forces a smug grin.
Seedorf would have beaming at full-time as a first-half Adrian Lopez double and second-half goal from Valle were enough to overcome strikes from Raul Garcia and Markel Susaeta.

The much-needed win gave Deportivo a glimmer of survival hope, with 17th-placed Levante now just five points clear following their defeat to Atletico Madrid.
Seedorf was appointed Deportivo manager in February and tasked with keeping the club in La Liga.
He faces Sevilla next, who may be tempted to rest player for their Copa del Rey final against Barcelona on Saturday.
But Seedorf expects an even sterner test because of that chance of silverware.
Tottenham Risk Losing The Likes Of Dele Alli And Harry Kane If They Can’t Work Out How To Win A Trophy… And Quickly
TOTTENHAM fans will be keeping their fingers crossed Saturday’s defeat by Manchester United does not result in them losing more than the FA Cup.
Mauricio Pochettino admitted it might take another manager to take the club to the next level – in two separate post-match interviews, so it was no slip of the tongue.

And the boss was not the only one in the Spurs camp who seemed to be contemplating leaving the club in the aftermath of their eighth successive semi-final defeat in football’s oldest domestic cup competition.
Dele Alli also voiced his frustration as he reiterated his desire to win trophies… Spurs followers will be hoping it was just the loss talking.
But there is no doubt Pochettino’s stars are reaching the stage – if they have not reached it already – where they have proved they can compete against the best…
They now want to start beating the best in finals and title races.

Given how professionally competitive and focused these guys are, you can rest assured that if they cannot fulfil their desires at Spurs they will have no problem leaving for a club where they can win medals.
We saw it last season with Kyle Walker, who after nine years without winning a medal at Spurs upped and left for Manchester City where in nine months he had won the Premier League title and Carabao Cup.

Oh and by moving to the Etihad he also more than doubled his wages and picked up a £5million signing-on fee to boot.
How many of his old Tottenham team-mates will now be looking at how things have worked out for him and will be thinking of doing the same this summer?

Cm Punk, Stone Cold Steve Austin And Chyna… Wwe Stars Who Fell Out With Vince Mcmahon’s Company
LONGTIME WWE Champion Bruno Sammartino – the company’s biggest star in the 1960s and 70s – passed away last week aged 82.
WWE has rightly celebrated his life and career, but the company wasn’t always on good terms with Sammartino.
Splash News Brunno Sammartino notoriously fell out with WWE after leaving the company
He’s one of several top stars who notoriously fell out with WWE and its chairman Vince McMahon.
Sun Sport looks at six legends with real-life grudges against WWE.
The “Living Legend” was WWE’s longest reigning champion ever, holding the belt for a combined total of 12 years. He was also at odds with the company for decades afterwards.
After leaving WWE in the late 1980s, Bruno became an outspoken critic of the direction Vince McMahon had taken his beloved sport.
Splash News Burno Sammartino did not like the way the business was going under Vince McMahon

He labeled the product as “garbage” and slammed steroid use, Hulk Hogan, and the Attitude Era – especially its top star Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Bruno said: “I didn’t care for him because of his mouth. He was a very, very vulgar individual.”

Sammartino was known for his integrity and as a defender of wholesome values – it was no surprise that he hated WWE’s then-ultra profane and sexualised product.
He refused a Hall of Fame for several years, saying it would be “hypocritical” of him to accept.
