Championship side Leeds United made their third signing of the summer when they roped in Vurnon Anita from Newcastle United last night. The 26-year old had a five year spell with the Toons, and will now embark on a new sojourn in West Yorkshire.
Pre-dominantly a midfielder, scoring goals may not be his trait, but the video clip here shows the danger he can be when presented with an opportunity.
In a Europa League match in 2012/13 season, his first at Newcastle United, Anita opened his European account with this crackling shot.
Trailing 2-0 to Belgian side Club Brugge, Anita saw the ball bouncing towards him and unleashed a shot that had the onlookers on their toe after watching it as he smashed it fiercely into the net.
Newcastle United salvaged a draw later in the game as Shola Ameobi equalised for the visitors, but what’s catches the eye of the Leeds faithfuls is the quality of the goal.
With Anita set to don the white of Leeds next season, he may already set some expectations after the clip surfaced online. The volley, a thunderous one, is perhaps the best goal of his career, and Leeds may want to see him score a couple more like that for them.
