Video: The hilarious way Bayern legend blocks David Beckham’s free-kick during United vs Bayern legends game

Former Bayern Munich star Marcel Witeczek was by no means prepared to put his face on the line to block a trademark free-kick from United legend David Beckham.

Former Bayern Munich attacking midfielder Marcel Witeczek used his hands to protect his face and stop a trademark David Beckham free-kick from hitting the back of the net during Bayern’s legends clash against United at Old Trafford this afternoon.

Check out the bizarre moment below:

We can’t blame Witeczek for doing what he did, the being struck in the face by a ferocious Beckham free-kick would certainly leave a mark.
