Twitter has erupted with praise for Aston Villa manager Dean Smith after the 49-year-old pulled off a silky touch on the sideline during Villa’s away future to Manchester City in the Premier League.

Smith was spotted pulling off the move by plenty of people at home watching the game on TV and even by the official BT match commentator Steve McManaman who said it should be on the TV.
