Martin Odegaard Stands On Top Of The Ball, Pulls Off 'Trick Of The Season'

Just a week after Martin Odegaard sent Sergio Busquets back to Barcelona on international duty, the 20-year-old has only gone and pulled off another outrageous piece of skill, but this time for club side Vitesse.

Odegaard, who came to prominence in 2014 when he became the youngest player to appear and score in the Norwegian Premier League, struggled for first team minutes at Real Madrid after his highly anticipated move.

But the Nowegian talent has proved his worth in the Eredivisie under veteran manager Leonid Slutsky, proving to be one of their best players since his move last year.

If you don't believe me, just check out this highlights against AZ Alkmaar on Tuesday night.

Let's also give a special mention to this ridiculous piece of skill, where he quickly stood on the ball, turned and nutmegged his opponent.

STOP IT, MARTIN!

Do you think Odegaard should be given a chance in the Real Madrid setup when, or if, he returns to the Bernabeu?

The Norwegian admitted that he was "surprised" by Madrid's recent managerial appointment of Zinedine Zidane:

"I didn't think Zidane was going to return so soon, but I think he's a perfect coach for Real Madrid," he told Spanish publication AS.

"He can make a good group again and create something very good. I think it's very positive."

After making 38 appearances for Heerenveen in 2017, he returned to Los Blancos, but was once again sent on loan to the Eredivise.

It hasn't exactly gone to play for Odegaard since his big move to the Bernabeu, but his international career, along with his current spell with Vitesse, has been far more impressive.

He recently went up against Spain in a European Championship qualifier and in a moment of brilliance, he outwitted Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets with his lightning quick feet.

Odegaard clearly has the potential to light up world football in the coming years, but whether he can unlock a defence on the grandest of stages is still unclear.
