VIDEO: Watch Liverpool cult hero pull off outstanding assist in India

Luis Garcia

Luis Garcia set up the opening goal for Atletico de Kolkata yesterday.

One former Liverpool player who took on cult status during his time at the club was Luis Garcia.

The 36-year-old winger won the Champions League and FA Cup during his time at Anfield - and finished his playing career in Mexico with Puebla and Pumas UNAM before calling time on his career.

He hung up his boots in January after a career that saw him play for Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Panathinaikos.

He was undoubtedly a popular figure at Anfield during his time at the club - with his flamboyant style, European football success and trademark celebration lending themselves to be appreciated by the Liverpool fans.

And of course there was THAT ‘goal’ against Chelsea in the Champions League that wrote his name into Liverpool folklore.One former Liverpool player who took on cult status during his time at the club was Luis Garcia.

Or so it seemed. Because he is just one of many big name players to come out of retirement for the Indian Super League - which got underway this week.

Garcia is a part of the Atletico Madrid run Kolkata franchise, who have won their opening two games to install themselves as early league favourites.

While it is the goals of Ethiopian striker Fikru Teferra that have caught the eye the performances of their marquee player Garcia have been just as impressive.

And yesterday Garcia pulled out an incredible assist for Fukri to grab the first in a 2-0 win against NorthEast United, who have Joan Capdevilla on their books, as Atletico take the initiative in the ISL.

His chip over the back-line came down with snow on it and was suitably tucked away by the striker.

Not bad from this former Liverpool favourite.
