Rafa Benitez teaches Mitrovic how to pull off an elastico in Newcastle training pre Brentford (Video)

Newcastle United seem to have struck a rich vein of form in the Championship, and this weekend they take on seventh placed Brentford in a bid to move into the automatic promotion places.

Brentford will look to halt the Toon’s ascent as the Bees themselves are trying to gain promotion into the Premier League, hovering just outside the promotion playoff places currently.

Rafa Benitez could not stop the Toon from relegation, but he has won over the Geordies with his passionate touchline antics and micromanagement skills.

And now, their adoration of the Spaniard will only increase, as a video of the manager pulling off an insane flip-flap on Aleksandar Mitrovic surfaces online.

The Spaniard seems to have been teaching the Serbian a trick or two from his playing days, before surprising the striker with an impeccable elastico. Mitrovic is then given a chance to try the trick himself and does not fail to impress either.

With the battle for promotion tightening, Newcastle definitely needs their gaffer to play a trick or two, to get into the automatic promotion positions.
