Leeds United posted a video on the club’s website from Thursday’s training session ahead of Friday night’s Premier League clash against West Ham United at Elland Road – in a game that sees two completely different styles go head to head. Here are the best bits:
Jack Harrison better at football, than Basketball
Despite on-loan winger Harrison eventually returning to English football from MLS side New York City – where he played under Patrick Vieira alongside Frank Lampard, David Villa and Andrea Pirlo – he is hardly the best when it comes to shooting hoops, though this was with a balance ball.
American football including Leif Davis and Luke Ayling
Perhaps slightly better at this, Harrison has a good arm when it comes to American football. Left-back Davis and Ayling also appeared in the clip, showing off their ability with a differently-shaped ball.
Alioski’s Christmas message
The kind of the GIFS. Gjanni Alioski loves the camera, whether it be showing off his passion for Leeds, winding other players up or simply making strange noises. Here, the crazy Macedonian star wishes Leeds fans a Merry Christmas – alongside a cheeky wink.
Meslier shines between the sticks
Quickly becoming one of the bargain deals of the summer, French goalkeeper Meslier looked in fine shape ahead of Friday’s clash. The training video saw him being put through his paces by goalkeeping coach Marcos Abad – with a number of stunning stops, including one which he tips over the bar at the end.
