Thiago Alcantara was very impressed with linesman’s footy skills during Bayern Munich v Schalke

We’re not sure whether the linesman in question was Tobias Christ or Christian Gittelmann, but whichever lino it was they impressed Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara.

There was a superb incident during Bayern’s 5-1 humiliation of Schalke on Saturday in the Bundesliga as one of the assistants showed off his keepy-uppy skills.

As the ball ran out of play fro a Bayern throw-in near the corner flag, Thiago pulled a wonderful face as the linesman flicked the ball up and kicked it into his hands as the Spaniards trotted over the restart the play.
