Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been issued to Verlaat for the 1992-93 UEFA Cup campaign. Auxerre had reached the Quarter Finals of the competition in 89-90 but they went even further in this season reaching the Semi Finals in a famous run. Lokomotiv Plovdiv, FC Copenhagen, Standard Liege and even the Dutch giants Ajax were brushed aside by Guy Roux's men. Up next was Borussia Dortmund and an agonising Semi, having lost 2-0 at Wesfalenstadion AJA looked out of it but Martins and Verlaat himself made it 2-0 at Stade Abbé-Deschamps and the tie headed to a penalty shoot-out. The German's, as ever, won the shoot-out, the scoreline was 6-5 though Verlaat held his nerve from 12 yards. This great stand-out design was also used in the 93-94 UEFA Cup campaign but with a Duc sponsor but the side could not repeat the drama of this campaign going out in the 1st Round. Verlaat spent 3 years at the Stade de l'Abbé-Deschamps after signing from Lausanne in '92 and played in 9 out of 10 UEFA Cup matches in this season scoring 3 goals
