WATCH: Rivaldo Teaches Barcelona Youngsters How To Take Free-Kicks

Rivaldo was back at his old club Barcelona in recent times, helping out with the club's youngsters.

The Ballon d'Or winner was at La Masia and when a training session for Barca B was taking place, got involved and gave tips on dead-ball situations.

Rivaldo scored over 100 goals for Barcelona and was a specialist at bending free-kicks into the top corner, so the Brazilian spending time with Barca's next crop of talent and assisting with free-kick practice was of great value to them.

In a clip on Barcelona's YouTube channel, after reuniting with some of his old Barcelona teammates, the 44-year old can be seen conversing with some of the club's youngsters and asking about the technique and strategy they adopt when taking free-kicks. The players, along with Rivaldo, head to the goal to practice dead-ball situations.

And after seeing several of the young guns at Barca shooting at goal from distance, Rivaldo has the urge to put his wand of a left-foot to the test and see if his golden touch from free-kicks is still there to see.

Judging by the footage, it definitely is - as Rivaldo finds both corners of the net with relative ease at different points in the practice and shows Barca B players exactly how it's done.

The session will have been quite the experience for the youngsters, who are being filled with knowledge and expertise from one of the most technically gifted attacking players, who has played at the very highest level.
