Leeds first team coach James Beattie proved that he has still got it in his locker after scoring a brilliant free-kick during training.

The former striker, who played for the likes of Southampton, Everton and Sheffield United during his time as a player, scored 135 career goals in 466 games.

He is now working under Whites manager Garry Monk where the duo, alongside their coaching staff and players, have seen the club challenge for promotion this season.

The Yorkshire outfit are currently sitting third in the Championship table on 48 points from 26 games, six points off the automatic places.

Here is Beattie scoring the wonder goal in training and showing the young crop how it is done as posted by the club’s official twitter account.

The former Premier League striker, who has not officially retired, left his role as Accrington boss by mutual consent in September 2014.

He will now be hoping to help his current team earn promotion back to the Premier League after 13 years.

Beattie would no doubt have been helping current Whites striker Chris Wood try and earn his stripes on the field.

The New Zealand international has been the club’s main goalscoring threat this season, netting an impressive 17 goals in 29 games in all competitions.

He also found the back of the net against promotion hopefuls, Derby last time out as Wood will be hoping to continue that run against Yorkshire rivals Barnsley at the weekend.
