Video of Guti's '13 ridiculous assists that no one expected' for Real Madrid

Real Madrid legend Guti - one of the most underrated players of all-time

The list of legendary midfielders to hail from Spain is bordering on endless.

Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Xabi Alonso, Cesc Fabregas, Luis Enrique, and Sergio Busquets are just some of the iconic names that automatically spring to mind.

But few - if any - of them possessed the unique vision of Real Madrid's mythical midfield maestro, Guti Hernandez.

The Spaniard is one of those players regularly associated with the phrase 'the streets will never forget' and it's not hard to see why.

Throughout his career, Guti had a knack of delivering assists that left us mere mortals scratching our heads in disbelief.

To summarise the effortless brilliance of the Los Blancos icon, you can watch 13 of Guti's greatest ever assists below and the final one of the bunch against Deportivo really is the definition of 'unexpected'.

What kind of man back-heels the ball to a teammate when through on goal?! Guti, that's who.

Some of the finishes on show from the likes of Ronaldo Nazario, Arjen Robben and Robinho aren't bad either!

Unfortunately for Guti, he was condemned to play in an era dominated by some of the greatest players of all-time and as such, his name rarely crops up in present day football debates.

At Real Madrid, the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo and David Beckham stole the midfield limelight, while Xavi, Iniesta and more restricted Guti to just 13 appearances for the Spanish national side.

But those who saw the Madrid-born playmaker with their own eyes on a football pitch know just what a baller he was.

Guti is now looking to make his mark on the game as a manager after leaving Real Madrid's coaching setup to take the top job at UD Almeria in 2019.

Only time will tell as to whether the Spaniard can have the same impact from the dugout as he had on the pitch.
