Xherdan Shaqiri has pulled off one hell of a magic trick after disappearing into Jürgen Klopp's coat.
Following on from Liverpool's 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup, the 27-year-old winger embraced the Reds boss.
It was at this point when he somehow vanished, with Fabinho emerging out of nowhere from the background.
Check it out below.

Raúl Jiménez opened the scoring for Wolves, but Divock Origi equalised for Liverpool in the second half.
However, Rúben Neves' brilliant long-range strike would hand his side a 2-1 win and knock Liverpool out of the competition.
It wasn't all bad news for Liverpool fans, though. After all, Klopp played Ki-Jana Hoever for the match and he became the third youngest player to debut for the club.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager explained why he decided to use the 16-year-old Dutch defender as a substitute rather than starting him for the match.
"It doesn't make sense to bring in a 16-year-old boy from the start," he said (via BBC Sport).
"You don't bring him, you wait until he is completely ready, but he did well.
"That's how it sometimes starts -- when you are really needed, then it is only about if you are good enough -- and not how old you are."
Will Liverpool win the Premier League title?
