David Luiz came in for some flack earlier this season for one too many fancy flicks at the back - but the Brazilian has nothing on Mordovia Saransk defender Akaki Khubutia.

His Russian Premier League side are struggling desperately at the bottom of the table, seven points from safety. So the last thing they need is a fancy centre-back backheeling the ball to the goalkeeper.

So when Akaki Khubutia attempted a flamboyant flick back to his stopper it was only ever going to end in disaster. To make matters worse it was against Volga - one of Mordovia's main relegation rivals.

Not the time, nor the place then for a bit of showboating. Needless to say, Volga scored through Artur Sarkisov, sealing a crucial 3-1 win for his side.

Check out the disaster backpass in the video above...
