WATCH: Former Leeds United loanee scores the weirdest goal of the weekend

Habib Habibou taps in from close range after tending to injured teammate

This weekend saw an array of top-quality football played out in some of Europe’s most prestigious leagues. In the Premier League we saw Pep Guardiola’s table-topping Manchester City completely dismantle Jose Mourinho’s helpless Manchester United outfit in dominant style, with the reigning champions coming out as comfortable 3-1 winners at the Etihad.

Elsewhere in Europe, AC Milan were well beaten by Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus side 2-0, with two former Real Madrid stars stealing all the headlines as Cristiano Ronaldo netted the second for the visitors, and Gonzalo Higuain missed a first-half penalty for Milan before being sent off in the latter stages of the encounter.

In Ligue 1, Thierry Henry’s wait for a first win in charge of AS Monaco continues, as PSG thumped them 4-0 in their own backyard thanks to a stunning hat-trick from Edinson Cavani and a penalty from Neymar.

Aside from the obvious talking points this weekend, in the much lesser-known Israeli Premier League, we were treated to an unbelievably bizarre goal as former Leeds United loanee Habib Habibou tapped in from close range after tending to an injured teammate throughout the whole of the goal’s build-up.

The 31-year-old striker, who made four appearances for The Whites during an unsuccessful loan spell back in 2013, now turns out for Maccabi Petah Tikva in the Israeli top-flight, and this weekend scored the winner for his team in their slender 1-0 victory over 7th placed Maccabi Netanya.

Although not exactly the sort of screamer that makes its way into the history books, this goal will be remembered just as fondly for its utter bizarreness – have a watch below:
