Video: Leeds’ Botaka shows off his skills, pulls off the 'Bolasie Flick'

Leeds United’s Jordan Botaka has completed the flick made famous by Crystal Palace star Yannick Bolasie.

Jordan Botaka has taken to his personal Instagram account to show off his skills in training, proving that he could complete the exceptionally hard ‘Bolasie Flick’ made famous by the Crystal Palace star.

The piece of skill is known as a hard one to complete, as it involves flicking the ball over your head and turning 360 degrees to keep it under control, and Yannick Bolasie is the only player to try such skill in a competitive game.

However, Botaka proved he has the ability to pull off the trick, uploading a video of him completing it to his personal Instagram account.

Botaka arrived at Leeds over the summer transfer window with a reputation as a tricky winger, but he has yet to show off his skills during a game.

The 22-year-old has played just six Championship games, and has yet to score or assist a single goal when taking to the field. It appears as if Botaka is still struggling to adapt to the rigours of English football, and this video gives proof that he is as talented as many believed.

It is now just up to Botaka to start showing off his skills in a competitive game with Leeds.
