In the latest episode of Gamedayplus by adidas, Gareth Bale shows us how to perfect the knuckleball technique; there’s a tour of the famous La Residencia with Alvaro Arbeloa; a chat with Nacho about the Real Madrid youth system; and Marcelo goes on a trip to his favourite tattoo parlour.
The first piece sees Gareth Bale walk us through the perfect knuckleball using the adidas miCoach Smart Ball. The Smart Ball has sensors that measures the speed and flight of your strike, a feature that allows players to improve their technique with practice. In addition adidas is giving fans the chance to win the miCoach Smart Ball that Gareth used in the tutorial. You can see our features on that here. It’s one hell of an innovative product.
Following that, Alvaro Arbeloa gives a tour of Real Madrid’s player residence. It’s rare access to the areas of the club where Los Blancos relax, there’s a cinema, games room, swimming pool and more. Not a bad life!
Nacho, explains what it’s like growing up at Real Madrid. After joining the club at just ten years of age he is the perfect person to give advice to any young player looking to make the very most of their talent.
Away from the club – Marcelo at his favourite tattoo parlour, where he reveals his passion for music, his love of tattoos and the reason he always plays with a smile on his face.
