Telegraph football skills school: the hocus pocus

The hocus pocus has been used by many football players on the pitch, but it's a particular favourite of Ronaldinho’s.

The trick is an advanced attack move and can be quite tricky to get right, so it’s best not to attempt it at full speed.

In the video above, Queens Park Rangers Football Club Academy members demonstrate how to perfectly execute the classic move.

The trick involves pulling the ball behind your leg with your outside foot, then whipping it back round so it changes direction quickly.

Our Telegraph skills school series breaks down the steps behind an array of football tricks and teaches you how to master them for yourself.

Previous episodes have focused on how to execute the Cruyff Turn and how to master the Aguero fake shot.
