Lewis Holtby has revealed one of the secrets behind the creative midfield techniques he’s demonstrated so expertly in recent weeks.

Assistant Head Coach Steffen Freund recently labelled the former Schalke star as ‘King of the Assists’ after his passing from midfield has helped create a number of goals during our recent outings - he was at it again in Thursday night's win against Anji in Russia.

One assist that was the subject of many fans’ awe was the delightful chip over the Aston Villa defence which played Jermain Defoe in to score our opener in last week’s 4-0 victory in the Capital One Cup.

And Lewis, 23, has likened the action to that of using a sand wedge on a golf course!

“It’s not easy, especially when you’re in a crowded area of the field, but sometimes it really works,” said the German international.

“I just take out my golf clubs and practise at home!

“You have to kiss the ball somehow with your boot – it’s not easy. I think out of 10 practises, probably five go in the middle of nowhere!

“But when you’re under pressure, you just have to somehow lob it, kiss it, and there’s an element of crossing technique as well.

“It’s quite hard to do but I was lucky in the end at Villa!”
