AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has shown his players he's still got the skills to pay the bills, after excelling when he took part in some free-kick practice at the end of training on Thursday.

The 45-year-old Italian was an accomplished midfielder in his day, enjoying Serie 'A' spells with Pescara, Cagliari and Perugia before retiring in 2003.

And, Allegri proved he still knows where the goal is when pitted against 20-year-old goalkeeper Gabriel, successfully converting a number of set-pieces from varying distances and angles.

The Brazilian shot-stopper did pull off quite a few good saves, but it was the manager that particularly caught the eye and drew most of the plaudits with some fine finishing.
