Mainz keeper Robin Zentner just invented the ‘ghost pass’ and it’s the funniest thing you’ll see all season

What have we just witnessed?

Thanks to the likes of Ronaldinho, we are all familiar with the no-look pass.

But have you ever seen a ghost pass before?

Ronaldinho left PSG and won the Ballon d'Or with Barceloan in 2005

Not even this magician knew the secret to football’s newest trick…

Part-time footballer and full-time innovator Robin Zentner chose today, November 4th 2017, as the day to unveil his masterpiece to the world.

With his side 1-0 up away to Borussia Monchengladbach, Mainz’s keeper produced the most unintentionally hilarious eight seconds of football you’ll see this season.

Enjoy this over and over…

How did he not realise?

Given that he managed to recover and the error didn’t lead to a goal, we’re hoping that Zentner can laugh about it.

It’s this moment right here that does it for us…

*record scratch, freeze frame* “You’re probably wondering how I ended up here…”

The way he looks down at the fresh air he has just kicked.

It’s a work of modern art worthy of a place at the Tate.

Thank you, Robin Zentner, you have given us all much joy.

Oh, f**k it, let’s watch it again…
