Besiktas Players Struggle To Master Ricardo Quaresma's 'Trivela', He Does It With Ease

Ricardo Quaresma hasn’t quite fulfilled his potential in the game but we’ll always love him for the many outrageous rabonas and trivelas he has produced.

Here atSPORTbible, we’re suckers for an outside of the boot and there’s no denying that Quaresma is the absolute master of the skill – whether it be a cross or a strike.


Even at 34 years of age, he continues to do conjure up utter filth and no-one can do quite like he can.

In Besiktas training when his teammates tried to replicate his signature ‘trivela’ move without no avail, he showed them how it’s done by belting one right into the top bins.

The former Chelsea, Porto and Inter Milan man celebrated his trademark trick by running around like the World Cup final before hugging the goalkeeper he’d just mugged off. Besiktas posted the video on their official channels and the slow motion replay is particularly satisfying.

It’s the second bit of unbelievable tekkers Quaresma has busted out in Besiktas training this week – just a few days back he destroyed Loris Karius with a saucy rabona in shooting practice. Look at the state of it, just disgusting.

And it’s not as though the Portugal international limits himself to doing bits like the above in training. Earlier this season he performed the most pointless rabona of all-time after nutmegging Partizan’s Danilo Pantić.

Though he was subsequently crunched in a tackle, Quaresma felt it was entirely necessary to rabona-pass the ball to teammate Adriano on the left flank.

The bloke just absolutely loves it and memorably notched a breathtakingly brilliant outside of the boot strike in last season’s Istanbul derby. Carlos Kameni in goal was never, ever getting anywhere near it.

Keep dropping the sauce, Ricardo.
