Guti has become an often overlooked figure when discussing modern Real Madrid greats, a midfielder with incredible natural ability who perhaps failed to truly fulfil his potential.
This was a player who made a huge 542 appearances in the famed colours of Los Blancos, but who was awarded just 13 caps for the Spanish national side despite a career of huge success at the Bernabeu.
Beginning his career as a forward, the creative talents of Guti later settled into a deeper role where his technique and vision saw him become a prominent player for Real Madrid in an era of huge success.
Slotting in seamlessly alongside the Galacticos who would arrive following the turn of the millennium, he won five league titles and three Champions League trophies with Real Madrid and produced his fair share of memorable moments.
Guti’s guile and ability to see things others hadn’t was best emphasised with this incredible pair of back-heeled assists, the picture unfolding before the midfielder a step ahead of opposition sides.
