Francesco Totti was courted by Manchester United for very good reason, at his best he was, and in this case still is, the best midfielders in the European game.
Totti is still capable of the moments of brilliance, which remind everyone of why the best teams tried to sign him during his peak years before he went the wrong side of 30-years-old.
At 36-years-old, he remains one of Roma’s most important players, a key figure and a leader that others look to in their time of need.
In the recent Serie A match against Parma, he produced possibly the best back heel pass of all time, which is amazing to watch as it probably was for him to produce. The skill involved because of the speed of the play makes it a showcase piece of improvisation.
His technique has always been very good and on this occasion he showed it off epically. Take a look at the video below;
Seen a better back heel pass than that?
