Miralem Pjanic Is The World's Best At 'Knuckleball' Free-Kicks And He Proved It Again Last Night

Miralem Pjanic Is The World's Best At 'Knuckleball' Free-Kicks And He Proved It Again Last Night

Miralem Pjanic revealed last year that Cristiano Ronaldo had took over the duties as Juventus' number one free-kick taker following his transfer from Real Madrid, but was it the right decision?

Pjanic was previously Juventus' first choice free-kick taker and in the past, he bagged some absolute screamers from distance, most notably against AC Milan, Genoa and Chievo Verona.

But he handed over the mantle to five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo without much of a fight:

"Cristiano is here now, someone who in the past few years has shown he is best in the world,' he told Juventus TV.

"At first when we trained on free kicks it would either be me or Dybala to take it. Now, it's 100 per cent him. He is a tremendous free-kick taker."

Of course, Ronaldo is great from range but his consistency from set pieces has been questioned down the years.

Pjanic, on the other hand, is consistent as they come and he once again proved his prowess from distance while playing for Bosnia on Tuesday night.

In a European Championship qualifier against Greece, the 28-year-old took a few steps back, composed himself and arrowed one straight into the right corner from around 35 yards.

Just check out the dip and swerve on this ball.

Please don't disrespect this guy with a one man man wall because he'll go and do this:
