Forgotten Chelsea man Baba Rahman took the chance to impress Frank Lampard in training with a incredible volley.
The Ghanaian has been on the Blues’ books for five years but has only made 23 appearances, spending last season on loan with Mallorca.
If the 26-year-old wants a chance in the Stamford Bridge side this year, he will have to displace new left-back Ben Chilwell after his £50m move from Leicester.
But footage has emerged that shows Rahman still knows how to find the back of the net in style as a left-back.
In the clip, Chelsea are running a mini match ahead of the U21s’ EFL Trophy game against Oxford United.
A ball is looped in from the right wing, with the left-back waiting at the back of the penalty box.
And Rahman decides to leap into the air, smashing the ball in with his right foot with a volley to stun his Chelsea team-mates.
Applause breaks out as the Ghanaian jogs back to his own half for the rest of the game.
This footage earned more than 500,000 views within an hour of being published on the Blues’ official Instagram channel on Tuesday evening.
And the Blues faithful made their feelings about the defender clear.
“We miss you Baba,” one supporter said.
Another commented: “Why do we not use this guy.”
While a third sent a message to Lampard suggesting Rahman should not be sent out for a fourth loan spell since his Chelsea move.
“Forgot that we still have him – keep him,” they said.

And a fourth added: “I still have hope that Lampard will definitely use him this season.”
With a fifth simply writing: “Get rid of [Marcos] Alonso and Emerson, we’ve got solid cover at LB here.”
Rahman spent the last half of the 2018/19 season with Ligue 1 side Reims, scoring just one goal in 11 appearances.
And Lampard could bring in another French league star, with the Blues “confident” of completing an £18m deal for Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
