LIVERPOOL star Dominik Szoboszlai's secret weapon is his tiny feet – that his dad reportedly tried to stop from growing.
The Hungarian international joined the Reds for £60million from RB Leipzig this summer.
Szoboszlai starred in the Bundesliga, scoring 20 goals and 22 assists in 91 matches as he helped the club win two domestic cups and qualify for the Champions League twice.
His coach as a youngster was his father Zsolt, who played as a professional in Austria and Hungary.
Hungarian footballers idolise Ferenc Puskas.
He scored 84 goals in 85 games for his country while also helping them make the World Cup final in 1954.

Puskas also netted 242 goals in 262 games for Real Madrid and is widely-regarded as one of their best ever players.
The legend, who passed away in 2006 aged 79, stood at 5ft 7in and had a low centre of gravity, powerful things and tiny feet.
Coaches in Hungary often try to model players based on Puskas and Szoboszlai's father apparently went to extreme lengths to try to shape him into the perfect player.
The Athletic report that Zsolt forced his son to wear boots that were too small in attempt to stop his feet growing.
