One time Tottenham Hotspur target Leandro Damiao tries to foul himself to win a penalty

Leandro Damiao has a unique way of trying to win penalties.

Leandro Damiao never made it to the Premier League, which is a shame as his rather unique talents remain in Brazil.

The striker showed a novel way of trying to win a penalty during a Brasileirao contest, pulling his own shirt in an effort to win a penalty.

The once prolific striker has seen his goals dry up over the past two seasons, and interest from Tottenham Hotspur has subsided.

Damiao was unsuccessful in his attempt to win a spot-kick, which is probably a relief all round, for the good of the game and to spare the rest of the world from copy cat attempts.
