Carles Puyol Doing Neymar Things In A Futsal Game
Carles Puyol can still play a bit - as shown in this Neymar-esque goal he scored during a futsal friendly in Kuwait today. The Barcelona legend hung up the boots two years ago after a hugely successful 18-year career with the Spanish giants and national team.
In that time he became one of the world's greatest ever defenders, renowned for his no-nonsense and never say die attitude to playing the game. But this looks like a totally different Puyol playing in the Al-Roudan futsal tournament in Kuwait:

On this evidence though, he looks in shape to make a comeback at some level:

A return does look unlikely considering Puyol is now working as an agent in the game and was recently involved in taking Marc Bartra from Barcelona to Borussia Dortmund.
