Watch: Andres Iniesta Assists Luka Podolski With The Most Glorious Scoop Pass

Over in Japan, Andres Iniesta is still seeing things we'll never see.

The Spanish genius signed for Vissel Kobe back in May, ending his glittering stint with his beloved Barcelona and making his debut in new colours in July.

His first season with the club has been anything but perfect, with the team lying in 11th place, but Iniesta has displayed his special technical ability on a number of occasions - the latest being his sensational assist for Lukas Podolski, Vissel's other big-name player.

Former Arsenal and Bayern man Lukas Podolski bagged both of the goals in the important 2-1 win over Nagoya Grampus and the one laid on a plate by Iniesta was just sublime.

The former Germany international picked up the ball deep, fed Iniesta in the middle of the park and then darted in behind of course.

Then, the Barcelona legend did what he does best by perfectly picking out his run with the most delightful lobbed pass and leading to a spicy volleyed finish.

Just vintage Iniesta isn't it? He makes passes like that in his sleep.

The 34-year old has notched two goals since making the switch to the Far East and both were utterly joyous.

He scored the most magnificent goal against Jubilo Iwata, rolling back the years with a scrumptious turn that left the defender flat on his arse.

Iniesta then followed it up by smashing in an absolute rocket against Sanfrecce in another J1 League game.

Recently, Iniesta showered praise on N'Golo Kante, naming him as the one midfielder he would have loved to have played with.

"He's a player I'd like to have had in my team for many years," he told RMC Sport (via Goal).

"He's not going to come to Japan, but he's definitely a player I love because of the work he does on the field and the confidence he has in his game.

"His mastery makes him the centrepiece of Chelsea and the France national team."
