NFL star visits FC Bayern

NFL star Odell Beckham Jr, who is not related to former football pro David, visited the Säbener Strasse on Friday lunchtime. The American football pro was an onlooker for Friday's training session and subsequently met up with some Bavarians including Javi Martínez, David Alaba and Xabi Alonso. The New York Giants ace set up a friendly contest with Alonso which included free-kicks and juggling with the ball. Beckham is one of the greatest sports stars in the US. In one of his very first matches the 23-year-old impressed the American football family with a spectacular one-handed catch, which NFL experts rate as one of the best catches ever.
