Video: Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker skins Didier Drogba with his silky skills
Watching Per Mertesacker play, it often appears like a constant challenge for the lanky German to remain upright. But it turns out he’s got all kinds of crazy skills in his locker – he just doesn’t risk them when he’s at the heart of the Arsenal defence.
A charity match organised by Michael Ballack was a different matter entirely, so Mertesacker unleashed a 360-degree roulette in his own penalty area to evade the oncoming Didier Drogba.
Cool as you like.
