There has not been many players who can strike a ball as clean and hard as former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
He would be able to hit an absolute bullet of a shot from anywhere and any angle, and it did not matter how far out he was. You knew that when he had any sight of goal at all, that he was about to unleash a rocket, and most of the time it hit the target.
Today he celebrates his birthday, and The Mirror give us a timely recap of this absolute beauty of a finish against Manchester United!
Many happy returns @jf9hasselbaink 🎂
The man himself once said: “You can never say a goal is better than sex – all the guys that say that are not having proper sex.”
Fair enough. Still, this one’s good. https://t.co/ZmlpXd5tkP
