The veteran left-back scored an outrageous goal from the halfway line earlier this week, helping his side beat rivals Sion 5-0.

Supporters were left speechless as Clichy pulled off the audacious move.

But he has now revealed the secret behind his wonder strike.

Clichy declared that before the game, he was contacted by a fan on Instagram.

The footy-mad follower gave Clichy several tips about Servette’s upcoming opponents.

And one of those was that Sion’s goalie loves coming out of his box as an emergency sweeper.

Clichy admits the thought was stuck in his head all game.

And the Frenchman could not resist pulling the trigger when he witnessed stopper Alexandros Safarikas finally emerge from his goal line.

Clichy declared: “I received a message on Instagram from a Servette fan, who told me that the goalkeeper tends to be quite advanced, and that stuck in my thoughts.

“The execution was successful and it’s three points.”

The result leaves Sion rooted to the bottom of the Swiss league table.

As for Clichy’s Servette, they are just one point ahead of Lugano in second place.

But the title race is a forgone conclusion, with Young Boys 17 points clear at the top.
