MANCHESTER UNITED legend Dimitar Berbatov showed off his ripped physique in a first-touch tutorial.
The 42-year-old stripped down to his boxers and proved that he has not lost his silky skills since hanging up his boots.
Berbatov has invented the "ball and the wall challenge"to train his first-touch.
The Bulgarian begins kicking the ball with his left and right feet against the wall to practice passing and control.
He then takes it up a level by doing the same task but attempting to keep the ball off the ground.
Berbatov does several kick-ups before firing it at the wall and effortlessly controlling the the ball as it comes back to him.

He continues to repeat it, managing to avoid any bounces in the entire clip.
Berbatov tells fans at an expert level to kick the ball with different amounts of power so it rebounds at a range of speeds to get match ready.
The former Tottenham striker says: "This way I am training my touches, balance, coordination, reaction time and stamina. Everything you need in the game.
"Do not underestimate this exercise, it is one of the most effective exercises you can do to train your touches.

"The genius thing is the simplicity because football is a simple game for smart people.
"When you have good first-touches, your passing will be better, your decision-making will be better, you can read the game better and you won't over-complicate the game."
Fans were left stunned by his elegant style and perfect control.
One said: "We don’t have ballers like him anymore in our beautiful game."
Another added: "The master of the first touch."
A third commented: "What a player Berbatov was. And obviously still is."
Others joked he could teach the current Man Utd players a thing or two or even still start up front for them.
