Guti Is Responsible For The Greatest Assist Of All Time: The No-Look, Backheel

Guti Is Responsible For The Greatest Assist Of All Time: The No-Look, Backheel

It was a moment that left goalkeeper Dani Aranzubia in a state of shock. The Deportivo La Coruna goalkeeper rushed off his line and spread himself as wide as possible. He did all the right things to try and stop a dangerous Real Madrid counter attack.

But the temperamental genius of José María Gutiérrez Hernández, also known as Guti, was simply too much.

Karim Benzema slotted home from close range to make it 3-0 but this moment belonged to the blonde, long haired Spaniard.

In a world full of Galáctico names and big money transfers, this underrated midfielder would often go under the radar.

Guti, who made over 400 appearances for the club, recorded a number of silky smooth assists during his 24 year spell at the Bernabeu, including 'that' defence-splitting backheel assist against Sevilla in '06.

But this one against Deportivo was special. On January 30, 2010, the greatest assist of all time was recorded.

Guti's Incredible 'Original' Backheel Assist For Real Madrid Isn't Talked About Enough

It was later labelled 'the heel of god'.

As millions around the world expected him to take a shot against the onrushing Aranzubia, Guti instead fooled the goalkeeper - and all of us watching from home - by cutting the ball back with a sublime, no-look backheel with his left boot.

He recorded some outrageous assists during his playing days but this was different gravy. My god.

While many believe that assist against Deportivo La Coruna was the greatest, others claim another Guti backheel could easily top that effort.

In Real Madrid's 4-2 win over Sevilla in 2006, the Spaniard assisted Zinedine Zidane with the following pass.

Can we just appreciate how bloody brilliant Guti was.
